About this food


In Cantonese cuisine, shrimp filled wonton is most commonly served with thin noodles to make wonton noodles. It is also consumed with red vinegar. The soup is made from boiling shrimp shells to give it a distinct taste. MSG may be added to enhance the flavour. Hong Kong wontons were introduced to the area after World War II as street food and later indoor eateries.
