After many failed attempts at folding these little beauties, I finally did it! It (sort of) looks like proper gyoza and definitely tastes like it. Next time, I'll get my wrappers from @ichibalondon though. It won't be as fun but it'll be MUCH quicker!

Checked out Devon’s omurice whilst in the north 🍛 Japanese omelette, garlic butter rice and demi glace. The omelette was probably the highlight for me - very light and buttery 👌
REVIEW: @kyoto_katsugyu_gyukatsu (Kyoto Katsugyu), on the menu: deep fried wagyu steak 🥩 🐄. This was served with multiple condiments to try it as many different flavours such as wasabi and soy sauce, salt and white pepper, curry sauce and others along with shredded lettuce and miso soup. After trying this and wagyu cooked other ways. I will stand by my belief that wagyu or any beef for that matter is best eaten as an ordinary steak cooked on either cast iron or a flat iron (I haven't tried sous vide yet to be fair haha) with just salt and pepper, no messing about. That being said this was obviously still delicious and decent value @ £17 if I remember correctly especially given location. 7.5/10
REVIEW: Akoya-Chaya, a buffet specialising in Tsukemono, meaning "pickled things" in Japanese (the consumption of fermented foods is thought to be a contributing factor for the famous healthy lifestyle of the Japanese). There was probably 30 different vegetable pickles to try with different types of rice so lots of different flavours to try and experiment with!
Some very interesting moves such as the miso soup base encased in a pastry shell which dissolved on application of water and the tea which you use to flavour your rice and pickles! 🥒🍵🍚🥕🍆🥔🌶️
Stuff yourself silly on a healthy authentic and unique Japanese meal for £15 (I think 🤔 won't be more than that), a really interesting experience and a great light lunch! Thank you @sophiemaegrant for introducing me 😇 - 7.5/10.
REVIEW: Kamo Mitsufuji a restaurant specialising in duck based Japanese cuisine. I always found duck to be a great ingredient that just isn't used enough at all, I hardly see it used mainstream outside of peking duck! 🦆
Here me and @tmferrante chose the sukiyaki course option where trays of duck breast and thigh, along with mixed vegetables and nama-fu (wheat cakes) which were cooked in the cast iron skillet along with brown sugar and soy sauce. There was also a few seperate courses most notably adding stock and then rice and udon noodles to soak up all the goodness that was left on the skillet afterwards 👍. Was definitely a good meal, but it was a little expensive at £30 and I feel it did not use the duck to its fullest potential! 🤔 7/10
REVIEW: Gyōza Hohei, near the Gion area, both TripAdvisor and Michelin guide recommended.
A super lowkey spot specialising in gyōza 🥟. Me and my boy @tmferrante went for the traditional gyōza or pork and cabbage and the ginger version. The standard gyōza were good and all but nothing special special. The ginger one however came with a fantastic dipping sauce which was beautifully balanced with sweet, tangy and salty umami notes, I'm still trying to figure out what went into it! 🤔🤔 (ginger, soy, garlic, tomato all cooked down), decent price of I think it was ¥400 for 8 Making it around 35p per gyōza 👍 7.5/10
REVIEW: @menbakaichidai, a restaurant specialising in ramen which they set on fire for 30 years. (swipe to see actual ramen + video!) 🍜🔥
So the fire, I must admit it is a little bit 'Las Vegas' and does the fire actually do anything to the dish Probably not to be honest. However, eating is a multisensory experience and if a big fuck off flame in your face doesn't excite you, I have no bloody clue what will 🤷♂️. So if you look at it from the perspective as an excitatory experience to introduce your meal it fulfills its purpose. (lol at my face). Onto the ramen itself, I remember it being a reasonably light porky broth suggesting a tonkostsu x shoryu or it being watered down to prevent being overly rich. As I've said previously, I really enjoy this kind of broth but it doesn't stand out! What I did really enjoy though was the abundance of scallion to top the dish off. I will steal this move for all the ramen I make in the future!
I did enjoy the theatre of it all and the ramen was definitely good so I would give it an 8, but I feel comparing it to the standard of other ramens in Japan you are paying extra for the theatre and ultimately for me it's all about the food so imma reluctantly downgrade it to a perfectly respectable 7.5/10.
Thanks for @tmferrante for you company again hahaha and @sophiemaegrant for the recommendation 😇🤗.
