Dumpling Monster
| Stan Lee

Things have calmed slightly around Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic. Grocery stores have largely returned to life, restaurants are doing all they can to continue to offer takeout and delivery (as well as grocery items themselves), and the city continues to await further word on when physical distancing efforts to fight COVID-19 can be curtailed. Luckily, that leaves plenty of time for folks to stay home, dine with family or roommates (or on video chat), and watch TV — ideally with a whole bunch of piping hot dumplings at the ready.

The below 14 places offer relatively inexpensive bags of premade, frozen dumplings of all kinds, from Armenian to Chinese to Taiwanese and beyond, perfect for taking home, dropping into the freezer, and having on hand for any night of the week when cooking truly seems like just too much to handle. The restaurants are listed from west to east.
