Wonton & BBQ Pork Noodle Soup: AJs Edition

So I tried the Wonton & BBQ Pork Noodle Soup at AJs, on Charlotte St, just up the corner of Edward & Charlotte, and I wasn't blown away. It's good, of course, as it's still a Wonton & BBQ Pork Noodle Soup, but it didn't have anything to commend it above any other I've had.
Except for the size.
These servings are huge. When the bowl comes out, your eyes bug out of your head and you wonder, am I going to be able to eat all of this? Of course you can, but you definitely feel full at the end. So maybe for value for money, AJs is the winner. I prefer the egg noodle at the place in Albert St. but there's nothing wrong with these noodles. There are ample wontons, more than at Jackpot, and they too taste fine, though I think I prefer the wonton at Jackpot. I'm not a huge fan of the cabbage that goes into most Wonton & BBQ Pork Noodle Soups, so it's a pretty much a wash in this category, though somewhere does pit bok choi in instead, I think, so wherever that place is, I probably prefer that. But when it comes to size, I'm pretty sure Ajs is the winner at the moment.
