Different types of dumplings
Gyozas are originally from China (called Jiaozi in Chinese) and are now hugely popular in Japan as well. They are recognized as a staple in Japanese homes. Gyozas are also called potstickers. They are usually made with garlic chives, Chinese chives and minced pork. They can be fried (yakigyoza 焼き餃子), boiled (suigyoza 水餃子) or deep fried (agegyoza 揚げ餃子). Either way, they are delicious!
Pan-fried gyoza- "yakigyoza" (焼餃子)
Deep-fried gyozas- "agegyoza" (揚げ餃子)
Boiled Gyozas- "suigyoza" (水餃子)
They can also be served in a soup, wonton-style.
Where to get gyozas
In Japan, gyozas can typically be found in three places: "izakaya" (Japanese pubs), Chinese restaurants and at any convenience store/supermarket. At the latter, they can both be found cooked or frozen. So you can get your gyoza fix any time of the day and pretty much anywhere.
