Tachikawa is a new remarkable spot in Tokyo. As a matter of fact, Tachikawa is one of the leading towns which are famous for gyoza. Around Tachikawa Station, there are several dozen of gyoza restaurants, such as a very old restaurant established in 1929, and a restaurant serving very unique gyoza.
Let me introduce special impressive 3 restaurants of gyoza from many in Tachikawa, today.
A Gyoza restaurant established in 1929, “Yotsukado Hanten”.
Yotsukado Hanten which was established in 1929 is one of the oldest Chinise restaurants in Tachikawa. The gyoza of Yotsukado Hanten consists of well balanced filling made from pork meet and vegetables wrapped politely with slightly thick skin.
The gyoza of Yotsukado Hanten tastes nostalgic Showa style taste. You can enjoy crispy taste in Yaki-gyoza（pan-fried gyoza), and soft feeling in Sui-gyoza（boiled gyoza) individually.
Yotsukado Hanten provides 50% discounts on yaki-gyoza on 5th, 15th and 25th every month, and 50% discounts on sui-gyoza every Wednesday.
“The Gyoza in New York” with the Statute of Liberty.
This store has a unique signboard with the miniature Statute of Liberty hanging on the neck. The restaurant is designed like an izakaya (Japanese style bar), and it is always cheerful and full of the local customers.
A lot of the pork meet filling wrapped with soft hand-made skin is very juicy. These gyozas are as twice big as regular ones so it’s worth eating them. Gyozas come in pan-fried, boiled and deep fried. They also come in cilantro gyozas, extremely spicy gyozas and deep fried wing gyozas.
