In Montreal, there is one thing that is really tough to do. Finding Chinese restaurants that stand out is something that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. In most cases, what we see as our favorites doesn’t necessarily work for each and every single person. When our tried and true becomes complacent, it is our duty to seek out an alternative. The first step in that journey is another staple of Chinatown, Mon Shing.

Part of my heritage demands that I find the places in Montreal that serve my kind of food. In the past, I’ve made mention of trying to find the very best in Won Ton soup in Montreal. While trying to find Chinese food in general doesn’t really appeal to me, finding that specific dish does. While I’ve been given many suggestions to sub-par pork and shrimp won tons in Montreal, only a select few were able to tell me where to find the only type of these dumplings worth having. A shrimp-only won ton dumpling is far superior to the one I just mentioned and I think I’ve come across another place that does it.
