KCP’s Blake Radcliffe Feasts on Gyoza at Shibuya Gyoza

There’s no shortage of delicious, affordable food to enjoy when you’re in Japan. Just a short distance from the KCP campus is Shibuya Gyoza.

Gyoza (ギョーザ, ギョウザ), the Japanese version of a pot sticker, is one of my favorite Japanese dishes. I like the texture of the gyoza—crunchy at the bottom part and softer and more tender on top than a Chinese dumpling. The cooking technique of gyoza involves pan frying the dumplings with water and very little oil instead of steaming them. This makes preparation easier and more convenient. But other common ways to prepare it are by steaming and deep frying.

20 pieces of grilled gyoza.

KCP’s Academic Year 2017, Blake Radcliffe’s take on Shibuya Gyoza:

“This is a great place to take a small group of friends to eat large amounts of delicious gyoza at an affordable price, with 20 pieces costing as little as 880 yen. I give this restaurant a solid 4 out of 5 stars — delicious, affordable and a short walk from KCP.”
