In Beijing, there are so many wonton shops that they can't be counted, but only "Huntun Hou" has enjoyed a great reputation around the world spanning decades. There isn't a  wonton enthusiast out there who doesn't know about this old restaurant. 

There is a very exacting process for making wontons at Huntun Hou. The distinguishing features of their wontons are: thin skin, fine stuffing, excellent soup, and tasty seasonings. "Hunton Hou" claims their wontons have "skin as thin as paper", and it is said that if you place the skin on top of a newspaper, you can still see words underneath. Furthermore, the ratio of how much meat filling is used varies according to the number of dishes ordered. Here, wontons are handmade on the spot with an abundance of seasonings including seaweed, coriander, leafy green vegetables, small dried shrimp, egg and more. Making wonton soup is also one of their special skills, with a mellow taste, not too oily, and full of calcium; a healthy, nutritious meal.
