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.
