Shinjuku Kakekomi Gyoza

It was our last night in Tokyo and we were craving badly for gyoza as we had not have any since we arrived. While going home daily, we passed by this small shop which looks extremely popular as it was crowded everyday so we decided to give it a try on our last night

The shop itself is quite small and narrow with a small sliding door entrance. Once you enter, the entire right side is filled with tables and seats which can house about 20 people

As you go further into the shop, you will see the kitchen

The shop is fully decorated with white lanterns of different shapes and patterns

The menu items are all on these traditional wooden plates which are fixed on the wall

Orders are taken via the ipads on each table and is available in English as well. There is a wide variety of alcoholic drinks as well as snacks that go well with drinks. You can also get full meals from the shop as they are an izakaya. I witnessed a couple sitting next to us get grilled horse meat.

The drinks come in a good size and is very cold and nice to accompany the snacks. The alcohol drinks are also pretty strong even when I chose one of the cocktails

The main reason for us to visit was for the gyoza as it was a great choice. The gyoza was pan fried to golden brown with a slight charred edge but the meat inside is still very juicy and succulent.

Overall, the shop has a very good atmosphere to chill out and hang out for a few drinks with some nice Japanese snacks and easy bites. The prices are also pretty affordable and they are opened 24 hours for a quick supper when you are in the Shinjuku area.
