For anyone tired of the same ol’ brands from H-E-B and Trader Joe’s, give 99 Ranch a whirl. Once you hit the cup noodle aisle, the Pocky treats, and the dumpling freezers, there’s no going back. Better still, switch frozen for fresh and refuel inside the shop. Near the entrance, you’ll find Steamed Buns, Turnip Cakes, Sticky Rice, and Shumai at the counter, plus a Chinese bakery and bubble tea station onsite.

If you love Asian food and can actually cook, let 99 Ranch Market be your Trader Joe’s. Before heading for the bean sprouts and Pocky treats, turn right at the entrance and fuel up at the hot deli counter. You’ll find steamed buns, turnip cakes, sticky rice, and of course, lots of dumplings. Flavors vary, but you’ll usually find shumai, steamed beef balls with tofu skin, and har gao (AKA shrimp dumplings), alongside seasonal specials. Be sure to grab frozen dumplings from the grocery section while you’re at it.
