Wu's Wonton King (nee Wing Shoon)

Recommended Posts

You just have to give the Gods of Travel bigger offerings if you want them to work closer to home.

Suggestions welcome. I could burn an old passport. Or a neck pillow.

I don't think Orik is telling us not to eat in Chinatown.  I think he's telling us not to worry about letters.

 

What do you when traveling in the Third World?  Not eat at all?

 

I think I understand what he's saying.  What I'm saying about my eating habits is that no matter the "grade," I try to make it a little bit safer to eat - for me.

 

I have no problem eating off certain street carts in Chinatown; there's a great barbecue skewer cart on Grand at Christie practically every night that I really like and which Significant Eater will not touch. And there's this lady, who happens to set up right outside Wu's when the conditions are right. Her chow fun with fish balls is my fave...

I have different rules for different situations. I thought nothing of eating horseshoe crab eggs wrapped in a banana leaf from a street vendor in a town north of Bangkok (I forget the name of it). The gods of travel protect me. But I don’t think their powers work closer to home.

 

 

And I sort of knew those snails in some stall off Sukhumvit were a bad idea, and the gods of medicine agreed with a healthy dose of antibiotics.  :D

A very good dinner last night at Wu's.

 

Pair of excellently cooked lobsters ($50), a big enough steamed black bass for the table of 6 ($50), snow pea shoots with crab, chicken/shrimp fried rice, Singapore noodles, tofu with mushrooms, their "famous" garlic chicken (better last night than the last few times I've had it), bone soup with dumplings, roast pork (which were actually spareribs), some beef dish, and maybe one or two things I'm forgetting.

 

Surprise - $54/pp all in. The kitchen was operating at a high level last night. Lots of birthday tables, which proved if they turn down the lights to sing happy birthday, you can still see everything!

Aside from home, it's the only place I can afford to eat these days - never a bad meal in my experiences there.
