Yesterday, I posted on my Instagram stories about how I'm stockpiling but doing so by supporting local businesses. That story kind of connected with a few people as I got some questions and reactions to it. So, I pulled together a blog post here.
For me, dumplings and dim sum would be my choice frozen stash over frozen pizzas. So, here are a few places that I personally like for frozen dim sum and dumplings in Metro Vancouver.
Loon Sung Foods Ltd (Crystal Mall Marketplace or Vancouver Retail Shop)
Loon Sung Foods Ltd has two locations: a retail store located on Kingsway and a stall inside Crystal Mall.
I've been going to the Crystal Mall stall for years which is run by an elderly couple. They are located inside the market place near the main entrance (right side). Cash only.

4500 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC (Crystal Mall Marketplace)
Ling Nan Dim Sum Food Co (Vancouver)
Another frozen dim sum focused mom and pop shop on Kingsway. Cash only.
Not a local mom and pop shop but T&T also has lots of frozen dim sum and dumplings locally made which I like.

Of course, if you have the time to do so, get some raw materials and make dumplings yourself. These mom and pop shops also sell wrappers.
