Jim Chai Kee is a small place with a simple menu. Wonton noodle soup is really the only thing you should be thinking about getting while you're here. The place itself isn't the cleanest (tables were sticky and the floors could use a good cleaning), but the food was stellar. The service was extremely fast. As soon as you order, you'll be getting your bowl of soup and wontons. Normally, this would raise a red flag but then you realize it's just soup and they're always busy. It's not hard to make....

There isn't much I can say that others haven't already. The bowl is large as is the shrimp wontons. Though they offer beef balls or fish balls too, but really...come on. I'm not sure you should disregard what all the positive reviews are saying. Do yourself a favor and get these giant shrimp wontons. The wonton is stuffed with perfectly cooked shrimp (probably more than 1 in each wonton) and is aromatic and flavorful. The sesame oil is prevalent and the broth really helps the aroma. the broth itself wasn't anything special. It adds to the thin egg noodle that is in the soup but is rather plain. I added some hot chili oil to it, and that really kicked it up a notch. (Be careful...it is hot).

If you're looking for a quick meal, this has to be it. You can really get in and out in 10-15 minutes if you wanted to. Soup is about $4.50 and you can get veggies on the side, but the soup is good enough. You can also get the wontons pre-cooked to take home as well.
