Wherever and whenever Yuan Wonton pulls up, there is guaranteed to be a crowd. When the truck first opened, block-long lines would form as hungry dumpling-lovers waited patiently for the famous chili wontons and whatever else happened to be on the menu that day. Over the last year, the team moved its system to online, with website crashes and two to three minute sellouts likening the ordering process more to coveted shoe releases or acquiring impossible to get concert tickets. Recently, lines began forming again, a sure sign that nature is healing. The thumb-sized wontons, drenched in a particularly zesty house-made chili crisp, tend to disappear so quickly after they’re opened, it would come as no surprise to find a to-go box of them on StockX or any other website where rarities get scalped at a massive premium.
