5 Best Gyoza in Kameido, Tokyo! (Kameido Gyoza Guide)


The area around Kameido Station is known for its delicious gyoza (fried Chinese dumplings). There are so many shops in the area offering gyoza that we decided to make a list of 5 of the best to help decerning gyoza seekers. Enjoy!

Feel free to follow favy!

Famous for its Skillet Gyoza: Cocoro (大衆バル Cocoro)

Cocoro is a gasto-pub style 'baru' restaurant located 1 minute from Kameido Station. The first floor has a counter, and the second floor is filled with small tables. The restaurant serves delicious wine and food to match such as meat skewers and gyoza. It's the type of place you can go to day after day without getting tired of it.

The popular item here is the 'Skillet Gyoza,' shown above. The crispy gyoza is served right in the pan on your table. The dipping sauces are a vinegar and black pepper mixture and black yuzukosho.

Old-School Gyoza Specialist: Fujiya (藤井屋)

Fujiya is perhaps the most popular gyoza shop among locals from the neighborhood. The hand-made dumplings can be eaten in or taken to go! Varieties include crunchy gyoza, shrimp and chive gyoza, premium pork gyoza, and shiso gyoza, among others. The shop also serves set meals, and an order of gyoza can be added to any one for just 200 yen. If you want to eat the gyoza that the locals eat, this is the place to check out!

Classic Chinese Gyoza: Chiyojiyu (長寿)

Chiyojiyu is another old school shop that is known for its great gyoza. There's definitely nothing fancy going on here, just classic, excellent gyoza filled with extra fresh veggies that are tasty enough to eat without dipping in any sauce at all! For a classic gyoza experience, this is the place to go. The shop is located 3 minutes from Kameido Station.

Juicy and Delicious Gyoza: Shyusoh (創作中華 秀荘)

Shyusoh is a Japanese-style Chinese restaurant located 7 minutes away from Kameido Station. In addition to favorites such as curry rice and the 'Shyusoh Hambagu,' the gyoza here is outstanding. As you bite into the gyoza, glorious, umami-filled juice spreads throughout your mouth. The skin of the gyoza is chewy and satisfying, and the dumplings include green onions in the filling, which is unusual but tasty.

Handmade Sui-Gyoza: Menkosho Takeshi (麺工房 武)

Sui Gyoza is gyoza that has been boiled instead of pan-fried, giving it an extra soft and chewy exterior that is also delicious. Takeshi is a ramen joint that recently relocated from Kameido Station to nearby Kinshicho Station, so it's a bit further from Kameido than the other shops on the list. Ramen and gyoza are a classic combination, and this is an awesome place to get both. Check it out if you're feeling hungry!
