Back in my uni days I used to take a ‘dumpling tour’ in the Sydney CBD on weekends, and one thing I learnt is that, everyone loves dumplings. Lots of them too!
So it’s not surprisingly that Harajuku Gyoza, a cute little gyoza joint in Potts Point, is quite the popular spot for a quick dumpling fix.
The menu is mostly filled with different gyoza varieties, as well as some izakaya share plates. Pork and prawn gyoza are like your typical Japanese style gyoza, with soft a soft wrapper encasing a delicate prawn and pork filling. The ginger and spring onion dressing is light and tasty.
Beef is a much less common choice of filling, but the beef with shiso gyoza is surprisingly tasty, the shiso imparting an unusual but delicious flavour.
For someone completely different we also try the mozzerella cheese and semi dried tomato gyoza which is super crispy, with stretchy cheese in each bite.
Tempura eggplant is fried in a light, crispy batter, the eggplant itself silky smooth.
