12 NYC Restaurants Selling Frozen Chinese Dumplings for Home Cooking

Where to find frozen pork, shrimp, and soup dumplings for at-home frying and boiling right now

View as Map

A true dumpling enthusiast knows that Chinese cuisine has many kinds of dumplings, from the classic northern dumplings (jiaozi), the Shanghainese soup dumplings (xiaolongbao) to the Cantonese shrimp dumplings (har gow). All of these varieties — and others — can be found in New York City’s vibrant Chinese dining scene.

There’s never been a better time to stock up on frozen dumplings for quarantine cravings, either. With many NYC restaurants temporarily closed for dine-in services, some Chinese restaurants have resorted to selling their dumplings frozen, usually at a significant discount. And with a quick boil or steam, at-home diners can easily recreate the same dumpling experience in their own kitchens.
