Whether or not it contains any crab, wonton-wrapped Crab Rangoon is one of our favorite ways to start an American-style Chinese feast. Jimmy Woo's understands this, and in addition to the traditional crab puff apps, they also have a sweetly savory way to wrap up the meal. Raspberry Puffs from Jimmy Woo's are so tasty they may have you re-evaluating your standard appetizer choice in favor of an end of meal sweet treat.
The Raspberry Puffs from Jimmy Woo's were savory, tart and sweet all at once. Rich, jewel-toned raspberry sauce was drizzled atop a platter of fried wontons wrapped around a sweet cheese filing. The raspberry was tart and fruity, the filling savory sweet, and the whole shebang was dusted with powdered sugar. The perfect ending to just about any meal.
