Well I will keep guessing in case Phinz is incorrect.

Are they mini buns/ dumplings?

P.S.
I used the term dim sum incorrectly (it is too broad of a term).

Here is a picture of them from my freezer
OK I thought I was putting a picture here but I messed up somehow.


What is Chinese zhong? I tried searching but I am not always very good at it.

Nope, sorry. Looks real close though. Not from China...or the Arctic.

If these looked like your zhong, the chef would be considered a novice.

That picture was off of somebody else's site and was taken in China. Perhaps he was visiting the Beijing School of Dumpling Making.

They could be xiaolongbao or baozi, but that's China too.
