At the entrance to Wu’s Wonton King, you’ll find tanks filled with crabs, and you might see someone taking a whole roasted suckling pig to go. If you’d like one for yourself, you’ll have to call ahead and order it in advance, although you can always just go with a roasted duck. The menu here is huge, it’s great for sharing, and it has everything from jelly fish and whole fried crabs to some excellent chicken and a family-style wonton soup that comes in a bowl that looks like a giant’s teacup. So bring a group. There are a lot of big round tables, and one of the best things about this place is the fact that it’s BYOB.
