Who knew that the best won ton soup that you will ever have lies just inside a donut shop? My friends and I discovered Country Fresh Donuts on Victoria Ave late one night in high school and we have been going back ever since.
This little coffee shop is owned by a lovely Chinese family, Mary, the mother, is often found behind the counter. The location may not be the best, there are only a few tables lining the window and the décor is less than impressive but none of that matters the moment you taste the soup. You can choose from hot and sour (with or without pork) and won ton soup. I’m a won ton girl. This homemade soup has huge won tons and big chunks of pork all surrounded by an amazing won ton broth. Have it there or take it to go, it’s equally delicious either way. Mary will bring a bowl of chow mien noodles out with your soup to munch on separately or add to the soup. And if you wanna kick things up a notch? You must try the Sriracha hot sauce. WARNING! Add small amounts at first to be sure you don’t make it too hot. It’s serious stuff.
All of this deliciousness can be yours for $2.75 for a small and $4.19 for a large. I’m not joking when I say this is the best… BEST wonton soup I have ever had. Oh and there are donuts and coffee available but that’s not important. This is Niagara’s hidden gem, make sure you try it when you visit Niagara!
