Last week, I went to Cubao with my son. We didn’t have breakfast before we left for office. So, we decided to eat in Chowking, a popular Chinese fast food chain. I ordered chicken that comes with wonton soup. It is the first time I tried wonton soup and I find the soup delicious.
Ever since I tasted Chowking’s wonton soup, I never stop craving for its taste. I wanted to recreate the soup. And since, I have wonton’s sitting in the fridge ready to be fried or steamed, I said to myself this is the time to try and recreate Chowking’s soup. By the way, I always make a batch of dumplings because my kids love them. So, when my husband wants hot and hearty meals, the first thing that comes to mind is wonton soup.
Wonton soup is definitely a comfort food. The delicious taste of the soup and dumplings will make you feel good. Well, this dish certainly made me feel good, so I know it will make us feel good.
In china, wonton soup is typically served in all Chinese restaurants and served across the world. This thin sheet of dough, filled with small portion of vegetable and meat filling is great for soup. My version of wonton soup is very easy to follow and the ingredients already available in your kitchen.
