Frozen dumplings (GTA)

Does anyone have any recommendations for good frozen dumplings in the GTA?

We really like the one in Market Village (Jia Jia Lok Frozen Dumplings), but with the demolition, not sure if they will relocate or just close. I'll probably be stopping by tomorrow to ask.

We don't really like the Ten Ten brands found at T&T or equivalent asian supermarkets.

Can anyone suggest where to get on par or better frozen dumplings?

There is a store in First Markham Place. I've compared them with Ten Ten and the like. This one has a firmer wrapper and chunkier fillings. I do like them but I don't go out my way just to get them.

I end up buying whatever is on "sale" at T&T or making my own.

I agree. This place is my favourite for frozen dumplings. If you find out if they'll be relocating or closing let us know.

They said they will probably relocate, but have not firmed up a location yet.

Are you talking about the ones sold by Siwin brand at Costco? The potstickers? If so, I love those ones too.

These ones:

Love the Siwin Potstickers from Costco! They come with packs of the sweet soy dipping sauce as well! Add some asian red vinegar and slivers of ginger to the sauce to elevate! NOM!

Commercial operation but open to the public.

Little hole in the wall but awesome..

Much better IMO than anything commercially available at a Costco or TnT

Siwin Potstickers looks yumm but which one is the best when it comes to steaming them? I prefer steaming as its cleaner for the stove top and healthier, also easier to cook as you just set it and forget it (with timer ofc)

The Siwin ones offer a few different ways of cooking them on the back of the package. You don't need to cook them up like the picture on the front. I steam them as well, using my Instant Pot. They are delicious with the dipping sauce they come with! Also you can use them to make a wonton soup!

They are full cooked already, so it doesn't take long at all.

sounds good. Will try them when they go on sale. I have the IP as well and the steaming function escapes me. How exactly do you use that function? Add water, set manual timer, then just leave it 'unsealed'? Sealing when steaming is the same as pressure cooking, which i dont want.

Yeah you could probably do that. I don't really understand the steaming function either.

Another suggestion is to get the glass lid accessory and a good steamer basket. You can use the glass lid and saute mode to reach a low boil pretty quickly with a cup or two of water. Then add in the dumplings to the basket and close the lid. Now steam until you feel they are done.

I've also just been lazy and pressure cooked them for 2-3 minutes so I don't have to do anything but set it and forget it lol. Honestly tastes fine to me that way as well.
