The Chinese experience

There are several common variations of shapes to the wontons. Depending on where you find yourself in china, as there are different ways of making wontons in different regions, for example in Shanghai, Wonton filling is most often made with minced meat (usually pork) and shepherd’s purse served in chicken soup while in Ningbo Wonton has two types, steamed Wonton and Wonton soup. Both are filled with pork and shrimp. Not only are wontons a must have when in china, they also have some extent of nutritional benefits as the vegan versions are available.
