  1. What exactly are you looking for? Filling (if so, what type)or no filling? how do you define won ton?

    1. I want to make won ton soup, fried won ton and I don't want to make the won ton's. Buy frozen and use them different ways.

      1. I've never seen them either, in the Bay Area or greater Los Angeles area. I think wonton skins are just too thin and prone to breakage.

        1. Yes. I've seen them. You can buy them from vendors in Chinatown in SF. I've also seen them in Ranch 99 in Cupertino. I know that Cupertino is a bit far from Sacramento but I've definitely seen frozen wontons in the bay area.

          1. I don't know about the big brands, but locally made, frozen wontons aren't hard to find in NYC's Chinatown. though usually not in the supermarket style stores. I've gotten them at a butcher shop and a noodle shop that also sells dumplings, etc. Have you asked anyone at the places you have tried?
