WANTON PLEASURE

My New Year's Eve indulgence. I have only ever seen this treat at Minneapolis restaurants, but they all seem to have it. The Vietnamese places, the Taiwanese places, the Chinese places: they've all got the cream-cheese wontons on the appetizer menu. That is right: deep-fried and stuffed with nothing but cream cheese. This may be the Minnesota equivalent of fusion cuisine.




Served with a glossy red dipping sauce that seems to be part ketchup, part sweet-n-sour, part cherry Kool-Aid. My love for them is equal only to my subsequent regret.
