Here at this modern and brightly-lit restaurant in the same strip mall complex as Tip Top’s Sandwiches and Shaanxi Gourmet, Hong Kong-style wonton noodle soups are dished up from morning until night. The chef honed his craft in Hong Kong before opening Noodle Boy in 2010. From the bounce of the noodles to the spring of the wontons, it’s clear that there is an expert behind the stoves.
Most everyone orders the wonton noodle soup, which comes with four wontons chock-full of shrimp and a choice of egg noodles, wide rice noodles, or vermicelli. I always select the thin and wavy egg noodles for their superior chew. Ladled on last is a scalding hot broth that’s wonderfully aromatic and worthy of slurping once the wontons and noodles are long gone. Sliced beef, cuttlefish balls, meatballs, and wonderfully plump fish balls are available as extra add-ons, but for me, this bowl is perfect as is.
