Wantan (sometimes spelled as wonton or 馄饨 “hun tun” in Chinese), is found commonly across Chinese cuisine. In Singapore, one will find wontons in any Chinese restaurants ─ steamed, fried, and boiled.
Going back in time to the Han Dynasty of China, wonton was said to be a kind of “bing” (a kind of bread in China). The difference is that Wonton has fillings inside, and is eaten after being steamed or boiled. Ancient Chinese think wonton is a sealed bun, lacking “Qi Qiao” (seven orifices) and thus, named it as “hun tun,” which means chaos.
