Year of the Takeout Day 121: Golden Forest
Subgum Wonton from Golden Forest (353 Grand Street, 212-505-9513)
The question isn't "why stick fried wontons on top of stir-fried meats?" The question is "why not stick fried wontons on top of stir-fried meats?"
With Golden Forest's subgum, naysayers won't get an answer.
But they'll get a decent, greasy gutbomb--pork, beef, and chicken tossed in brown wok sauce and topped with a crispy dumpling--for $6.95.
One note: Year of the Takeout has heard that other versions of subgum are available. We'll keep you updated if we come across any other varieties.
