  1. Yank-Sing can do this. It's pricey, but they can deliver it cooked and hot, or cooked and cold, and I believe you can rent steaming equipment if needed.
    I would get a wok and some bamboo steamers and heat it myself, it heats quickly. The metal stacking steamers work too, just get some banana leaves to line it, or use the nifty cloth-disposable liners they sell on Clement.

    1. A friend had Shan Dong cater their wedding and they had several kinds of dumplings as appetizers. Theirs are larger and doughy with a variety of fillings. So no har gow, shumai, Ichi gow, etc. They were a big hit but might not be the variety you'd like. They also had vegetarian ones.
