Bibigo Korean Style Mini Wontons (Chicken & Vegetable Dumplings) Review

Bibigo Korean Style Mini Wontons (Chicken & Vegetable Dumplings)

We’ve been scoping out the Bibigo brand for a little while now here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, and while we haven’t found any of it to be mind-blowingly incredible, we do think their offerings are pretty okay for the most part. We do intend on reviewing as much of their food as we can, so even though we’ve bit kind of hit-or-miss on their offerings, we’re going to keep pushing through.

And that brings us to the Bibigo Korean Style Mini Wontons, which we’re reviewing today.

The package lists out several different methods for cooking these. You can fry them in a pan, heat them in the microwave, or boil them in a pot. (If you want to read the full cooking instructions straight off the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

We decided to try two different cooking methods for this, so our first attempt was the pan-fry method. As you can see in the image above, we did crisp the edges just a little too much. With such a short cook time, though, it’s really hard not to.

So our next attempt was in the microwave. Obviously, this led to some less crunchy wontons, but we also didn’t overcook them this time. However, if you go with the microwave, note that the shells do end up a little bit rubbery, and the seam at the top can be a little tough to chew through. This isn’t a problem with the stovetop method.

As for the filling, though, this stuff is pretty good. It’s a chicken and vegetable blend — and by vegetable we mostly mean cabbage. That said, the blend between the chicken and cabbage is actually pretty good, and you’ll be able to taste both of them. The overall flavor is a little weak, though, so we definitely recommend a sauce of some sort to liven these up.

We did actually test these out with some sauces. First up, we tried soy, which seemed like the obvious choice. It definitely adds something to these, but they end up maybe just a tad too salty. So then we tried a sweet chili sauce and that really hit the spot. The added sweetness really makes these pop.

These are pretty small, so the package recommends 13 wontons as a serving. While that sounds like a lot, we think you could probably down like 20 of these in a sitting without feeling overstuffed. If you stick with the package’s recommendation, though, you’ll be consuming 230 calories (45 from fat) and 520 mg of sodium.

The Bibigo Korean Style Mini Wontons are a super fast and easy-to-make snack food, though they really do need a sauce to live up to their true potential. If you don’t mind dabbing these in a little bit of soy sauce — or better yet, a sweet chili sauce — then you’ll find plenty to love here.
