In the popular Japanese drama, Tokyo Joshi Zukan or Tokyo Girls Club, the story talks about a Aya. She is a young girl from Akita and she dreams a becoming an independent urban woman. One of the spots used in the drama was Tokyo Gyozaro in Sangenjaya. Sangenjaya is only two stops away from Shibuya on the Den-entoshi Line. The area is more residential so it is relaxed. There are many restaurants and a retro shopping district.
Previously, we introduced popular and convinient Harajuku Gyozaro, this time we wanted to talk about Tokyo Gyozaro.
Tokyo Gyozaro and Harajuku Gyozaro are very similar. For the main items, there is pan-fried or steamed gyoza, bean sprouts, cucumber, and cabbage. If you want to more flavorful gyoza, have leek and garlic added.
The crispy skin looks so appetizing right? One order of gyoza comes with six pieces and it costs 290 yen. Its affordable and delicious.
The combination of crunchy and juicy gyoza is awesome. It will have you coming back for me.
If you want to add even more flavor there is vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil. Those who love spicy food should definitely try adding chili oil.
The steamed dumplings are juicy and flavorful as well, the skin is soft and its not greasy. If you are looking for something a little lighter, this might be a good option.
The open-concept kitchen allows customers to see the gyoza being made. Watching the process is half of the fun.
Unlike Harajuku Gyozaro, Tokyo Gyozaro is full of Japanese locals. The next time you are in Tokyo or near Shibuya, don’t forget to visit Tokyo Gyozaro in Sangenjaya. Have a cheap and delicious meal.
