Restaurant Review: Neptune Wonton Noodle

By Sherman Chan,
Special to The Post




Their speciality - BBQ Pork & Duck Noodles and Wonton Soup - had the wing, so the meat was dry. The skin was crispy. The BBQ pork was lean, but flavourful. The noodles were al dente, but the soup was too mild. Wontons were bouncy and sweet with a nice background hit of sesame oil and white pepper. 

We had the Ha Gau (Shrimp Dumplings) and Siu Mai (Pork & Shrimp Dumplings). The dumpling skin was over-steamed for the ha gau. But the filling had large chunks of sweet and buttery shrimp that had a firm snap. The siu mai were the perfect texture with some meatiness from the chunks of pork, a lot of shiitake mushrooms and shrimp.

The Lo Mei Gai (Sticky Rice wrapped in lotus leaves) had a decent ratio of ground pork, cured sausage and salted egg yolk to glutinous rice. The BBQ Pork Buns were a good value. However, it needed more savoury elements.

The Steamed Black Bean Pork Spareribs were tender and meaty, but didn’t have enough seasoning. The Phoenix Talons (Chicken Feet) were plump and tender with softened cartilage and fat underneath and well-seasoned.

The Beef Meatballs were super processed but were airy and buttery with a light rebound. Shrimp Spring Rolls had too much garlic.

For dessert, the Steamed Sponge Cake was too dense compared to the regular square-cut version, but wasn’t too sweet. On average, the food was not bad. Considering its location, Neptune Wonton Noodle does the job for a quick meal, Dim Sum and late night.
