The original Hon’s is in Vancouver, but they’ve been in the same Chinatown location for over two decades. The place is a bit grungy (health score is 83), and service is slow, but look beyond that and you’ll find the best wonton noodle house in town. When I was a kid I could eat three bowls of noodles here. You shouldn’t miss the beef tendon noodle soup: It’s a little spicy, but the noodles are al dente, and the beef tendon is cooked to perfection.
