Gyoza: No longer a boring side dish

No longer the sidekick to other Japanese dishes, the pot stickers are now main courses themselves

Gyozas are no longer a boring side dish. The Japanese dumplings are now the menu highlight of restaurants that specialise in the popular pot stickers.

These are Gyoza King at Orchid Hotel, Gyoza Ya at Robinsons Orchard and the Osaka Ohsho chain, which has four outlets here.

The dumplings, generally sold in a set of five or six, are filled with minced pork and vegetables.

Unlike other dumplings that are completely boiled, steamed or fried, gyozas have a crispy pan-fried base and its upper half is steamed. It is normally served with dipping sauce of either vinegar or soya sauce, with julienned ginger.
