New Chao Chow

Ed Schoenfeld writes for NY Mag on New Chao Chow's wonton soup: "both excel in wonton soup. New Chao’s broth is outstanding, flavored with fresh herbs and white radish, and topped with pickle and fresh cilantro." We have to disagree, the broth was over-sweet and the wontons not memorable. The only reason worth picking New Chao Chow over any of the other Chinatown spots is for the rarely found soup, Hủ Tiếu. Theirs will satisfy a craving but is by no means authentic.
