Moshi Moshi Harajuku Gyoza.....
I have tottered past this timber clad corner restaurant many times – it’s hard to miss because 9 times out of 10 there are hoards of boars outside waiting to pig out on beer and gyozas. No convincing required.... I love beer and I love gyozas even more.
The gyozas were fresh, full of flavour and perfectly complemented by the do-it-yourself dipping sauce, no need to constantly ask for more soy sauce or chilli (happens all too often for this pig). I gobbled on the full prawn, grilled duck and grilled pork gyozas as well we the chicken karange and edemame all of which were washed down with icy cold Kirins... bliss!
The inside of Harajuka Gyoza is simple but also full of character - smiley faced dumplings, timber tables, mood lit and plates with random Japanese imagery adorning the walls. It was easy to get a seat on a Sunday afternoon but next time I visit I will brave the line on a Friday night so I can enjoy the full experience of this electric little pig pen and listen to the enthusiastic staff yell “moshi moshi” at full volume.
The bitter: not fit to fill a truffle pig The sweet: perfect place for a pre-night on the town pig out The damage: minimal damaged - 5 dishes and 4 beers approx $65
