Day 103 - Chicken Shu Mai

This was our first time getting these at Trader Joe’s and we were happy with the purchase.  They are little frozen chicken and veggie dumplings that you heat and eat.  I cooked them using the “steam” method listed on the box, though you can also just bung them in the microwave.

Seriously good price

Note:  I have not mentioned this in previous reviews, but Trader Joe’s does a fun little thing with naming products – this one is made by “Trader Ming’s”.  Often “Joe” will be replaced by a name that matches the culture the food comes from.  Keep your eye open for that if you haven’t noticed it before – some of them are quite sweet.

Price – $2.99
Rating – 4
