Gyoza Stadium: Osaka

I love gyoza. I love em’ in all shapes and sizes, too. But, I really love them just the way they are, plain…. And I wouldn’t be caught dead singing that tender love song by Billy Joel called“ I love you just the way you are” in public. I have been accused of talking and singing to myself in that way once before. Like when I was holding that gyoza in my chopsticks, up to the light, and then uttering those lyrics. The way I see it is that because gyoza is so popular, there should be a theme song for it.

(“I often tell “gfs” this. When it comes to make-up, less is best. The way you look every morning is the face I will see more of, not the made-up face. I want to appreciate your natural look just the way you are”).

Simple and natural.

Sometimes a little make-up is good - mayo. By the way, the meat used in this gyoza is cow tongue. Makes you wonder whether we can taste each other…

The gyoza stadium wasn’t hard to find at all as it’s located on a busy main street that I will list later.

Moving from cow to shrimp was a pleasant change for the better. In this pic below you see ebigyoza or shrimp gyoza.

There’s a hot plate underneath sizzling the gyoza.

These little small sized gyoza are called hitokuchi gyoza or bite size gyoza

Another delicious gyoza with mounds of green onion marinated in vinegar. This was very good.

This is a jumbo sized gyoza, so I only ordered one.

Last but not least. The large tall frosty mug.

In conclusion, rather than give my own opinions, I would like to spread some link love by introducing other blogs that have also blogged about this place.

Two of my greatest experiences with gyoza can be found here and here! Neither of these restaurants can be rivaled in my opinion.

First, there’s Cabel who’s a real gyoza aficianado and excellent writer. And then we have our favorite gaijin magazine Metropolis, which featured the Gyoza Stadium. Next up is Rameniac, which was a fun article to read.

Living in Osaka wrote up a brief intro. as well.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
