Yissine Frozen Dumplings are one of the Rhee Brother’s 14 lines of Asian frozen food products. The Yissine Vegetable Korean Dumplings are vegan and filled with tofu, onion, green onion, cabbage, radish, sweet potato vermicelli, leek, sesame oil, garlic soy sauce, ginger and black pepper, and as proudly proclaimed on the front, No MSG.
Since I have tried the Rhee Brother’s Assi brand Vege Potstickers, Vegetable Dumplings and Hot Vegetable Dumplings I can’t help comparing the Yissine dumpling to the Assi ones. The Yissine Vegetable Korean Dumplings are shaped in a gyoza potsticker style and are closest in shape to the Assi Vege Potstickers; both the Assi Vegetable and Hot Vegetable Dumplings have a more traditional Korean dumpling shape, long and moon shaped. Like all three of Assi dumpling styles I have tried, the filling of the Yissine Vegetable Korean Dumplings are a faux meat, close in flavor to pork. However, the texture of the filling in the Yissine Vegetable Korean Dumplings was not as good as the filling of the Assi brand ones, it was less convincingly meaty and was a little crumbly.
I think the three styles of Assi Brand dumplings I have tried are superior to the Yissine Vegetable Korean Dumplings.
