I decided to make my own wantons as there isn’t a single Chinese shop here in Amherst that can make decent wantons. Im sorry but it’s like a piece of thick flour skin to hubby and me. Wantons should be plump with minced pork, prawn and seasonings. 

Fyi, Wonton (云吞) are not dumplings. Dumpling (水饺) uses a different skin. And you dip Dumpling (水饺) in vinegar + ginger + garlic.
