Whenever anyone asks me where to eat in Hong Kong my reply is always Chuk Yuen for dim sum and Wu Kong for the food and xiao long bao. Every time I go to Hong Kong I eat at these two restaurants at least once.
Each time I go to Chuk Yuen they have something new in their dim sum menu. Last October it was the Shanghai wonton in chili and sour sauce. I had no idea what it would look like and just took a chance. An order yielded 4 large wontons with a sweetish soy based sauce in the bottom of the plate.

What surprised me were these bundles of vermicelli on top of the wonton. These were a delightful bonus, crunchy noodles topped with bits of spicy pork. This my new favorite dish in Chuk Yuen. I hope they will still have this in December.
