Looking for Recs-Most Chowhoundish Frozen Items at Costco

Just got back to work after 5 weeks of bonding with my baby boy...and getting really tired of eating almost every dinner from a restaurant. So need help in finding some good frozen items from Costco that I can put on the table quick. I'm in Los Angeles and usually go to the Costco in Alhambra.

  1. The potstickers - sorry, don't know the brand.

      second the potstickers. also, for non-frozen: the cucumbers they sell are great chopped w/lemon,salt, and olive oil. they also have very good marcona almonds. and hummus.

      sorry can't be of more help.

        Is it Ling Ling? With a Panda on it?

        They have good frozen spinach ravioli. I can't open the cream puffs without eating the whole box. They had an Alaskan salmon that was marinated that I tried as a sample that was good. The best thing at Costco is going around and trying all the samples so when you have a free afternoon, just hang out there and eat. Also, I haven't tried them but they have a lot of non-frozen premade entrees that look okay, like stuffed salmon, chicken, etc.

          Yes! I was even going to write "the panda potstickers".

            a free afternoon with a 5 week old...LOL...actually maybe that'll be one of our excursions this weekend to give mama a break.

        2. I'll tell you what NOT to get: The Margaritaville Chicken Wings. Bleh! (And we're not super-picky eaters!)

          1. Manderin Orange chicken. We bake it and microwave the sauce.

            1. We are never without a bag of their cheese raviolis...and those Panda potstickers too! Do try to pick up their frozen salmon. IQF in their own little bags...oh! and the mahi mahi too.

              You did say frozen...but you gotta pick up some of the rotisserie chicken. I cut it up and put in right back in the lid and cover it with foil. I freeze the carcass for soup. Yum.

                Yes! The Kirkland Four-Cheese Ravioli is way good.

              2. don't know if you have the Shepard's Pie in your Costco, but it is pretty good. the "panda" potstickers are pretty good so i agree with that.
