  1. They better be frickin' good to make me wanna go back...just for gyozas...

    If they could get some actual Japanese craft beer, that would be a plus. Kiuchi (Hitachino), Coedo, Baird...tired of seeing Kirin, Sapporo, etc.

      Gyoza King must be watching closely ...... ;-)

        Agreed, it'd be nice to see some other Japanese beer options. I've had Echigo and Orion at a few places.

        Funny, when I was in Tokyo last fall, I told my cousin (who lives there) that I wanted to try the local (meaning craft) beer... and he pointed me to Kirin and Sapporo, saying "all our beer is local".

          I love this article about craft beer bars in Asia (including Tokyo!): http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/08/tra...

          Covet!

            Orion has been acquired by Asahi in recent years, and there is absolutely nothing distinctive about Orion beer any more.

        2. Gyoza Bar will be featuring ramen as well as gyoza according to Scout. Opening mid-July.

          1. Walked by today. Snuck a shot of the room in-progress. Things still look a looooong ways away.

              Wow, that looks to me like a good 4-6 months away from opening. Think of all the final touches and inspections that still await.

            2. I think it's Mini Chowdown worthy... toftt

                  I think that means it is a small place :-)

                    Thx, I thought it meant a quick & light snack ! :-D

              1. Apparently they'll also be serving sandwiches???! Gyoza, ramen, salads, small plates AND sandwiches? According to this artice:

                I fixed their logo for them :P

                ** For the dense: this is not their official logo **
