After our quick meal of authentic Dutch fries on the streets of Amsterdam, the adults still wanted some good old fashioned hot Chinese food to comfort the stomachs, so we headed back towards the Red Light District to Chinatown where we stepped into New King Mandarin Cuisine to eat a ‘second’ dinner.
Since we were already halfway full with fries, curry, and mayonnaise, we ordered some noodle soups with wontons and dumplings to share.
New King Mandarin Cuisine was packed when we walked in and they had a lower level too.
I really wasn’t hungry at all since I had just ingested almost 50% of the two large cone of Dutch fries.
Thus, I tried out the wontons and dumplings when they arrived to the table.
The food arrived quickly and the size of the wontons and “sui kau” dumplings were so much bigger than we expected!
The wontons were large, chock full of plump shrimp, and tasty! The skin of the wonton was thin too and the soup base was good.
The “sui kau” dumplings were so meaty and chunky that it almost tasted like eating a sui mai dim sum in a wrapped wonton. It was extra filling because of that. I did like the wontons more though because of the fresh shrimp. 🙂
We were all so full very quickly but still managed to finish our bowls. Yummy!
Ken made a joke to the server that the wontons were too big and the server told us that’s what they are famous for. Their customers love their huge wontons with lots of stuffing!
Awesome! So cool that I got to try some Chinese food from Amsterdam too! 🙂
