Won Ton Noodle House ~ Chinese - Dixon House Food Court

Simple pleasures at Won Ton Noodle House in Dixon House Food Court.

[Last updated December 2012]





Whenever we start to feel a uninspired food-wise we get back to basics down at Dixon House Food Court. This time we head for Won Ton Noodle House. The menu is basic: a mix of Aussie Chinese crowd pleasers and noodle soups. The noodle soups are the winner here, super cheap and super good.

Over the years we noticed this place is particularly popular with old Chinese folks, we some some lovely old dears sitting down to a noodle soup like it's the best thing in the world. We've grown to love this joint.



Chu Hua Stewed beef on rice - $7.50. Tender, slow cooked hunks of beef. Lightly spiced, just a little sweet. Lovely in winter.



BBQ pork wonton noodle soup - $6.50. The ultimate classic Chinese noodle soup, done well. We've been back again and again for this baby, it's always a winner.



Prawn dumpling and beef tendon soup - $7.50. Alison loves that gelatinous 'nothing' taste of tendons. The dumplings and broth are great and the noodles are extra good, perfectly cooked with just the right amount of chew.



Spicy sweet and sour pork on noodles - $7.50 (or was that $6.50?). This dish was average at best but lots of fun, the sauce was like spicy kechup, kiddie food for grownups.

BACK AGAIN JUNE 2012...



Prawn wonton noodle soup - $6.50. Lovely pork'n'prawn wontons, excellent value. Haven't been here for a while and had to see if those noodles are as good as we remember - yes they are - firm with a nice bite, perfect.

BACK AGAIN IN DECEMBER 2012...



A whole sweet and sour fish for $9.50 with rice. Bargain. Our fishy pal is nice and crispy fried on the outside and moist in the middle. It's a great dish if you're in the mood to spend some time relaxing and picking through the flesh and getting the best crunchy bits around the fins. Also available in chili.

  7. Looks delicious. How would you compare their wontons to those you tried in your Hong Kong trip?

    1. Hard to say, I think in Hong Kong they are a little smaller. In Zhaoqing the ones we had were not much bigger than your thumb tip, very light and floaty.
