On the north side of the station lies a gyoza place. On a Friday night everywhere was packed and super hungry we decided to hop into this gyoza shop after seeing the prices. 750 yen for 10 gyoza. It caught our eye so we entered.
The menu was simply a board on the top of the counter. There was just Gyoza without anything else and there was a gyoza teishoku (Dumpling with Rice and Miso Soup) The prices were amazing so most of my friends ordered the gyoza teishoku set.
Now if you’re lookin for dine dining this place isn’t going to win any decoration awards. However the shop is super local. It’s run by locals and I mean you can’t really say it is without it’s charm.
The gyoza arrived and arrive they did. They were huge. Not like little gyoza’s but they were the size of a small stapler or something. So I prepared the dipping sauce, (soy sauce, spicy oil and vinegar) and dipped it into the sauce and it was delicious. However there was something missing. As I kept eating it I slowly realized there was no meat in the gyoza. Like nothing. It was pretty much all vegetable dumplings. It was delicious but for me it lacked the meaty punch that you get if you like eating meaty gyoza. I think the gyoza skin at this place is really well done. It’s a little bit thicker than ones I have been used to but it holds all the juices really well. So if you are a vegetarian I guess I could totally recommend this place.
So if brown stapler is aight and red stapler is good. I’d give this place an Orange Stapler.
Orange Stapler/Red Stapler
Happy Eating Ya’ll.
