Come over and warm up
On gray, dreary days, one craves for comfort food, and that is exactly what you'll find in Wonton House. Found along a stretch of Asian restaurants along Swanston Street, it is a small space with a warm, cozy ambience. When you walk in, it is bright, and the wooden stools and tables are inviting, and remind you of traditional teahouses.
And like traditional teahouses, there is a wide selection of dimsums and noodle dishes, and to round that all up, there's also an extensive list of rice dishes. To warm up my tummy, I got the Traditional Brisket and Wonton Noodle Soup, as well as a cup of their house tea. The noodle soup came in a big bowl of warm, tasty broth, the brisket and wontons distinctly flavoured, so it was one hearty, flavourful mix.
The service is surprisingly quick, so getting your fill will not be a problem if you come in already particularly hungry. If you do decide to get a cup of their house tea and a glass of water, unfortunately, they will charge you for the tea. Otherwise, the house tea is free and bottomless.
Comfort foods always deliver straightforward, no-frills, gustatory satisfaction. And that is what you'll get here. So if you're looking for something warm and filling when the temperature dips, come over and check out the menu. And have some tea while you wait.
