Wantons or Fries?

Making fried wantons.

Just before moving to the US, I thot about the local foods that I would crave… there are many that I would miss, but 1 that I shouldn’t is the fried wantons… becos I can get the skins and make it almost just as well in the US. I have done it before, so I know that it is almost ok, but never as good becos the skins are different, even tho all the condiments for marinate is the same.

Little pockets of flavors.

Maybe I should just eat fries instead. .. so available everywhere. Both are finger foods, fried and greasy. … but making wantons and sharing the real thing with my new neighbors are just so much more satisfying. 1st of all, fake wantons are common and somewhat popular in the US. … and someone must educate the American taste buds that those are not real Asian flavors.

Oh, did I mention that I come from a long line of Asian cooks (not chefs, just cooks)… I started making my 1st wanton under the tutelage of Ah Ma when I was 7.. so I must know a thing or 2 about wantons right.

Nice golden color. Looks crispy.

So I did a batch in the weekend before leaving. sigh… is that the last of my really good homemade wantons…?
