Be it jiaozi, mandu, pierogis, or gyoza, we can all agree that dumplings play an important role in different food cultures around the world. If you, like me, can’t get enough of those perfect meat-filled parcels, here’s a relatively new Japanese-style gyoza spot to hit up — Gyoza-San in Sembawang.
You won’t miss this cheery neon-lit kiosk, one of the newest entrants to Sun Plaza. Don’t fret about the lack of dine-in — the takeaway boxes are equally eye-catching, perfect for impressing your friends at parties or picnics.
Gyoza-San specialises in “conventional Japanese comfort gyozas with a twist” that are catered to local palates. None of the products contain pork or lard — all gyozas are filled with minced chicken and/or prawns.
The menu is Asian-inspired, with an emphasis on Korean flavours. Go for the Tom Yum Kung GYOZA (S$6.90 for 6pcs), Unagi GYOZA (S$5.90 for 4pcs), or even the soup-based Swimming GYOZA (S$6.50 for 6pcs), original gyoza in superior chicken stock.
Every order of gyoza comes with a dipping sauce — choose from Soy Sesame Vinaigrette with Ginger, Special Leek Oil, or Chilli Lime Vinaigrette.
Make it a full meal with one of their bento sets, consisting of three original gyozas, rice, and kimchi with Teriyaki Chicken (S$7.50) or Bulgogi Beef (S$8.50).
Do note that Gyoza-San is currently in the midst of obtaining halal certification. There are plans to expand the menu, so keep a lookout on their socials for more updates.
You know what they say in the face of a perfectly crisp and juicy dumpling — I’ll never let you gyoza.
