Looking for soup dumplings in Tampa

Has anyone ever seen soup dumplings in Tampa?

Not the steam/steamed dumplings which are fairly common, but the soup dumplings that seem to be popular in the northeast and west coast.

Here's a Wiki on them:

Thanks in advance!

    As far as any local restaurants, no. You would be hard pressed to find a restaurant in the entire Southeast US that serves soup dumplings. Your best bet is to hop a plane and fly to either NYC to Flushing Chinatown or fly out West to the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles.

    I dont think I have seen it at a local Asian market either. But then again, I was not looking for them either. Your best bet may be MD Oriental, the Brandon or Fowler (USF area) location. The Brandon store has a sizable section of its freezer area dedicated to frozen dumplings but more like the potsticker variety. You could always ask them to order it for you I suppose.

      Are you looking for a restaurant or a market to buy them at?

        Either would be great! And sorry for my slow reply, I had a family member sent to the hospital at the time of your post. Totally forgot to look for any replies after that.
