Harajuku Gyoza, Kings cross, Sydney

So I am in Sydney for a quick visit. It was a surprise visit and indeed both set of parents were surprised! No one knew I was coming except for a few friends and my brother who had to keep the secret for about 2 weeks! I think he was dying to tell someone but the reaction and facial expression on our parents were just too priceless!

I was hoping to hit up some cafes but was everyone wanted different things but we finally agreed of Japanese. I have heard about this place from a couple of friends, Harajuku Gyoza, speciality is obviously gyoza but they also had different types of dishes. The menu was quite simple, 5 different types of dumplings – pork, chicken, duck, vegetarian, prawn and other substantial dishes like chicken karate, pork belly, pork katsu don and many more.

We started with edamame – can’t resist ordering them!

We ordered 4 out of the 5 dumplings – pork, chicken, duck and vegetarian. I really enjoyed the pork and vegetarian. The gyoza was pan fried and it wasn’t too oily or fatty.

The chicken karaage was a favourite – chicken were tender and you can never go wrong with fried chicken! My only gripe was there weren’t enough fried chicken!

Agedashi tofu wasn’t too bad either.

Pork katsu don was a favourite amongst the diners. Tender pork cutlet which was lightly battered and deep fried, on a bed of rice topped with egg. Probably one of my favourite dishes.

The pork belly kakuni was good but some parts were a really dry which was a shame.

Lastly, we couldn’t help but try the apple gyoza with ice cream. Reminded me a little of apple pie, warm apple gyoza and vanilla bean ice cream.

Service was polite and friendly and definitely a fun place to go with friends or colleagues!
