Earning its rightful place in the 2018 Michelin Guide, this famous wonton eatery uses a mixture of shrimp meats to pile on the texture and taste of each wonton. They also cook everything in a broth made from shrimp meats, pork bones, and Jinhua ham, a dry-cured ham that’s packed with flavour. The restaurant itself has a semi-open kitchen where customers can see for themselves the process of how their wonton noodles get made.
