6. Add the pork wonton into the soup.
For pork wonton soup, it's better to use smaller wontons (than for frying) so it cooks faster.

8. Add the bokchoy last.

    1. Hi Gigi! They look the same; but they taste different. Lighter po ang pagkagreen ni bokchoy, unlike c pechay...dark green namn. Also pechay po is the one used for nilaga.
