"Polynesian" style Chinese restaurants

Shaogo...I agree that is why the egg rolls get mushy insides. But tell me is it the same wrapper as a wonton or dumpling?

One of my favorites that is rarely made is Cantonese Dumplings....these are your basic shrimp/pork/spinach wonton, fried like a dumpling and dipped in ginger sauce.

Boston-style Chinese Food recipes

I worked many years in chinese restaurants and we had to make this stuff up by the vats. Your recipe is close except we didn't use plum sauce....and instead of soy something "called Duck Sauce" was added, one ladle full to a whole large vat of the stuff. It was thick and black (perhaps a soy derivative). I think Soy would probably surfice for this ingredient though.

Although I'm in NH the duck sauce in the Dartmouth Area sucks...it's overly sweet and orangy in flavor. The duck sauce of my youth had that sweet and sour thing going for it.

Crab Rangoons in this area don't impress me either. I've had to learn to make all the things I like.
