Wonton Soup

Serves 3

On the weekends our family used to go to the city to buy groceries in the Asian markets. We always stop over at our favorite Chinese restaurant. All the food was delicious. We will order all our favorite dimsum the follow by duck rice and/or wonton noodles. Sometime I take both :D, I can handle it. The ambiance is really like eating Chinese food in old fashion restaurants in Honkong where the kitchen is set with the tables so the cook, the waiter everybody moves around and they talk to the customers.

Then my mother hang out with her friend who owns a Chinese restaurant to learn how to make restaurant tasting wonton soup. Uuuh, she nailed it.
