If you compare with your phone, you know they are obviously much bigger than regular gyoza! It is iPhone7 so the gyoza seems approximately 12cm long.

The filling is made from selected simple ingredients, pork, cabbage, leek, garlic, and ginger. They wrap the filling with chewy wrappers by hand.

Just a bite and the flavor of the juicy meat and natural sweetness of vegetables will explode in your mouth.

They go really well with rice. There are soy sauce, vinegar, and chili oil on the table to dip the gyoza.

You can get a set of ramen and 3 Jumbo Gyoza too (850 yen). The restaurant was originally a ramen shop, so their ramen is also great.

You can order Jumbo Gyoza from one piece for 120 yen, three for 360 yen.


The Jumbo Gyoza will give you an unforgettable juicy gyoza experience! You should try when you come to Ikebukuro, Tokyo.
I love traveling and eating. My favorites are everything matcha and cheesecakes.
