When I first saw the promo sign – $2.99 Shrimp Wonton Noodle Special – at the International Village, I did a double take (actually triple). It sounds like a great case of the Cheap Appetite. So, I walked into the East Fusion Food and ordered myself a hot bowl of shrimp wonton noodle soup, and a veggie spring roll. Fifteen minutes later, I was a happy man. The soup tastes great. Egg Noodle was cooked perfectly. And those shrimp wontons are to die for. The veggie spring roll is also tasty and very crispy but a bit too oily for my taste. Well… it’s deep fried I guess. The free hot tea is a nice touch. One little hiccup is that the server/manager is not quite friendly. Perhaps he’s in a bad mood and needs a daily dose of probiotics yogurt. Overall I consider this Cheap Appetite mission a great success. I hope the shrimp wonton noodle special last for a while ’cause I wanna go back for more.
