When you live in Dubai, you get excited about spotting certain things in grocery stores. For me, dumpling wrappers are one of them.

Be sure to check out my post on Where to Find Asian Ingredients in Dubai which includes a Google map pinpointing all the store locations.

Waitrose (a Western supermarket) by me in the Marina used to be a reliable source for gyoza wrappers. But in the last 6 months, I have only found one packet and I check every week. ONE PACKET!

One day a few months ago, I made a big ol’ vat of dumpling filling only to realize I had run out of gyoza wrappers. A drive to my usual haunts (including an hour-long detour to the Chinese stores in International city) did not turn up any kind of dumpling wrapper at all so I ended up making my own from scratch.

That experience of rolling out 40+ balls of dough and then flattening each and every one of them individually to the right thinness put me off making dumplings for a very long time.

And then yesterday I was at LuLu Hypermarket in Al Barsha and came across not just wonton wrappers but gyoza as well! I nearly did the happy dance in public but then I remembered it was Ramadan and didn’t want to get arrested for dancing and singing in public during daylight hours.

Ok, I wouldn’t have gotten arrested (I don’t think) but I didn’t want to seem disrespectful either. For the love of wonton or not.

  1. Great post 🙂 Waitrose in Marina Mall has them almost every week now, so hopefully saves you a trek. Have you seen pancakes anywhere though? (The ones you eat with peking duck). If you know where you can get them (ideally close to Marina) please let me know! Thx

  2. You can also get both at Dean’s Fujiya Japanese supermarket in Oud Metha. They sell them for 9.50 aed for a pack of 30 🙂

  3. I garnered an unhealthy obsession with gyoza while in Japan last November. Seriously could. not. get. enough. Lucky for me, I actually found a place in rural Tennessee that makes it, and so that was my dinner last week =)

  4. you can also get gyoza wrapper in this place….

  5. OMG it’s so not fair that you have a waitrose. One of the down sides to living in Spain is the awul supermarkets here, non of which sell decent food. All the best veg and fish/seafood is sent elsewhere and we get left with the dregs. Oh how I wish we had my favourite supermarkets from the UK.

    Good on you making the wrappers, think I may have to resort to that as the one place here I can get them is just so expensive.

    1. I think certain ingredients are getting easier to find here in Dubai – it just takes a little footwork sometimes to prepare a meal as I have to visit a couple different stores to gather all the ingredients.

      I think Waitrose has only been around the last 2 years or so. Before that many of their products were sold in a shop called Spinneys. I do love that shop ever since I discovered it!
