If there’s one thing we’ve been doing a lot more of in lockdown, it’s eating to our heart's content, and if you’re on the same train as us, then you’ll no doubt want to hear about these gems from Aldi. 

Called everything from ‘superb’ to ‘the best’ and even ‘COVID lockdown survival food’, Aldi’s $9 pack of gyoza have been a major hit with people online.

While the gyoza aren’t new to the store, a post on a Facebook has reignited everyone’s love of the food, with people swapping notes on the best way to cook them.

It’s no surprise they’re winners with foodies, as they come in at just $9 for 26 gyoza. 

“I think I’ve. Ought a million of these .My son loves them covid lockdown survival food,” one person wrote.

Another person said they are ‘value for money’ and are simply ‘delicious’. 

Others pointed out the best way to cook the gyoza to make sure you get the best flavour out of them.

One person said they put a splash of water in a bowl with them and pop them in the microwave. 

Another person pan fries them with sesame oil and a ¼ cup of water so they steam and cook through.

“First you have to pan fry them on the two flat sides, so they get some color and brown a little. After this you put a small amount, around 1/2-1/3 cup of water to soften them and cover with a lid. Then take the lid off, and when all the water has dissolved then it is ready,” another person wrote. 

It’s yet another feather in Aldi’s cap this month, after their pots and pans widely considered quality dupes of the high-end Le Creuset cast iron cooking range hit shelves to the delight of shoppers last week.

Yesterday, Aldi fans also raved about the Aldi Visage Rotating Hair Volume Styler Brush, which claims to dry and style hair in one step.
