Won Ton City (Bellevue, WA)—CLOSED


Sui kau noodle soup

One person, the proprietess of Wonton City, runs the entire operation: preps, cooks, waits and cashiers. Who we presume to be a daughter occasionally helps out. In a tiny space in the Lake Hills Shopping Center, having no more than 10 tables, she serves noodles and congee (rice porridge) at very reasonable prices. Of the several kinds of noodle soups, our favorite is one with sui kau dumplings, made with pork, shrimp, mushrooms and black fungus. The owner-chef makes only a limited number of them each day; when it runs out, which can happen quite quickly, you’re out of luck. The broth is briny, tasting of shrimp shells, splashed with a little sesame oil. For $4.95, there is no better bargain.
