Potsticker Dumplings

The Bomber (now officially the world's coolest child) has introduced me to Wagamama, which has replaced the Ivy as foodies' favourite restaurant according to the Telegraph.

When there he eats gyoza, "five steamed, grilled chicken dumplings filled with cabbage, chinese leaf, chinese chives and water chestnut. served with a chilli, garlic, sesame and soy sauce".

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiaozi.

Sounds like Potsticker Dumplings to me.

I think we need to visit Hoo Hing and add a home-prepared version to our repertoire if only for the sake of my bank balance.

Well, alright little cousin! I *love* gyoza. Shrimp, pork, chicken, vegetable! since we live just a stone's throw from Chinatown, a lot of the vegetable stores near the house sell them, so all we do is dipping sauces.

Maybe we'll be able to get them made up in Hoo Hing. I hadn't thought of that.

They do!!! I just checked out their products page (under dim sum), and you have a nice variety of stuff. PLUS they've got recipes.
