won ton soup
A Chinese dish of won tons cooked in and served in a clear broth flavored variously with ingredients like scallions, celery and soy sauce. The soup is often garnished with julienned strips of chicken, pork, vegetables, etc. The broth's flavor as well as the garnishes are prepared to correspond to the won ton filling.
