FIGHT GYOZA isn't your ordinary Gyoza. The gyoza was invented by a former soldier who came back from China after World War II. He opened a store called WHITE GYOZA, over 50 years ago in Chiba and now has more than 40 stores all over Japan. Fight Gyoza is one of them and for some reason it isn't called White Gyoza, when all the other shops are and is the only franchise close to central Tokyo.

Fight Gyoza's menu is very limited. People come here to only eat Gyoza. The gyoza skin is extra thick and same flour for baguette is used. But the biggest difference is how they cook the gyoza. The gyoza is tightly lined up in a frying pan with almost no space in between. Then boiling water is added and cooked for 8-10 min. Next they add oil into the frying pan until the oil covers the gyoza. The water eventually evaporates and gyoza is ready.

People at least eat 10 gyozas, which is 420 yen and the size of the gyoza is about half the size of an adult's fist. And with gyoza a cold glass of beer is a must.

Other items they have is a set of Rice, Miso Soup, & Pickles

and Chahan (Fried Rice) for 720 yen, Ramen for 620 yen, Chashumen (Roast Pork Ramen) for 820 yen, but nothing is special about these dishes. You really come here for the gyoza.

Its not in the most convenient location, but people from all over Tokyo come to eat here. You can also purchase it frozen from their website, where step by step instructions on how to cook the gyoza is listed.
