Utsunomiya is, apparently, the gyoza captial of Japan so yesterday I headed to Utsunomiya to eat gyoza.
Apparently - well according to the tourist info we got at the station - Utsunomiya is famous for it's "ace bartenders" as well. I didn't get to try the work of the ace bartenders because we left too early but next time I'm Utsunomiya, I'll definitely be sampling.
|Gyoza Venus. She has eaten too much gyoza and now she has a belly ache.|
|Gyoza boy with a gyoza head. I wonder if he sometimes wants to eat his own head.|
|Beer, it goes well with gyoza.|
|Gyoza with a variety of fillings - you can't tell that from the photo but there are many different things inside these gyoza. They were delicious too.|
|I am squiggly.|
|Come in for a stiff one. Yeah, it's funny.|
|Deep fried gyoza|
|Pan fried gyoza|
