Gyoza is kind of Japanese potsticker
-like food, but fried. Eaten with soy sauce
and that spicy oil
they use, it is incredibly yummy.
Utsunomiya, the capital of Tochigi prefecture in Japan, is famous for its gyoza. Me and my fellow English teacher, Jesse D'Alessio, used to make the two-hour train trip from Shirakawa to Utsunomiya simply to buy thirty or so gyoza to munch on.
Mmmm. . . soooo gooood. Natsukashii.
