New Dim Sum Hong Kong Style Noodle Soup with Dumplings?

'Hong Kong Noodles' used to be 'Jumbo'. It is no longer Jumbo. It is now Good, Very Good. You can enter through the rear from the parking lot, and not feel as if you are walking into a dreary hole. You can even enter through the front, and might even be merrily greeted. The bathrooms have been cleaned, the kitchen has been scrubbed, and it appears that even the water in the eel tank has been changed. But I just want to talk about one thing right now. Hong Kong Style Noodle Soup, here called simply, Wonton Soup. No, no, it is not that bland garbage made from old egg shells and coffee grinds that you get from your local takeout. It is actually a hearty meal-big bowl of soup, lots of chewy noodles, and 'wontons' that are really pork and shrimp dumplings, although your waitress (in a friendly gesture, she fondly asked me to call her..."my waitress") will tell you they are out of dumplings, just go ahead and order the wonton it's the same thing (#13-$4.25). I also like #28 ($5.25), which is Noodle Soup w. Roast Pork and Wonton, pictured here. I really didn't need the pork, but hey, I was using it like a condiment, like they tell you the Asians do. I will preach more on the duck, and the freshest dim sum you can get uptown, tomorrow. For now, know that there is a new dim sum sheriff in town...
