Difference between Sui Gow and Wontons?

soypower | May 2, 2010 11:46 AM

My local chinese place has a great wonton soup, but I'm wondering about the menu item below it - Suey Gow. After a little web-research it looks like they're called water dumplings.

I've had a couple people try to explain what it is, but I still don't fully grasp it. What is it that makes them suey gow and not wontons? Size? Shape? Filling? Cooking Method?
