As the name suggests, Gyoza bar is a bar like restaurant that offers a good a selection of gyoza paired with a choice of craft beer. It is a modern take on Japanese food with a twist of contemporary and traditional cooking styles, tastes and interior design.
The restaurant also serves ramen based on homemade broth and the gyoza are grilled and served on grill pans from Japan.
Deep fried chicken gyoza served on a gyoza grill pan – how tasty does this look?
Pan fried salmon gyoza with a special mayonaise blend and pan fried pork gyoza. The salmon gyoza isn’t common so I was excited to try this! The taste of it was very interesting, it was just, different. I couldn’t quite tell if I liked it or not. Maybe you guys can tell me what you think when you give this a go!
Ramen with char siu and shoyu egg
Ramen with pork belly and shoyu egg
Sweet potato chips – this was delicious!
The interior design is a modern take of a traditional Japanese setting combining wooden panel designs with modern lighting. Mimicking a bar setting, it showcased a partially open kitchen where customers can watch the cooks wrapping the dumplings and rolling the noodles.
The strange thing was that because gyoza bar and the restaurant next to it (murakami) is owned by the same owner, even though they had separate entrances they shared the same bathroom. This meant that going to the toilet meant you will pass through the restaurant next door before entering the toilet. Not a problem, I was just slightly disorientated when I first went 😛
