When we were holidaying in Japan, another food that we really enjoyed was the gyozas. Some of it is done quite differently. On the last day of our trip, the boy was hungry and we landed up at this random gyoza shop. The gyozas were a lot smaller and skinnier and almost rectangular in shape. He ate about 40 -_- In fact, he spent our money that was meant to take the train to the airport!
I still miss those gyozas a lot as they were really good. Freshly made on the spot, they had a nice bite to it and it had the right amount of meat and chives inside it.
In the food hall at Ion, there is a tiny stall that sells gyozas. I think it's pretty decent and makes a good snack. There was a promotion - 4 gyozas plus a tonkotsu ramen for S$9.80. I got it but the ramen was disappointing.
The noodles were average and the soup broth was really thin. The single slice of pork was just standard - I love those that are slightly browned and char-grilled at the edges. As for the egg, it was just okay. I think most places can't get the egg right. Tampopo still does it the best.

I realized that I always eat at Tampopo and have posted pictures of the ramen but can't find it in my entries! I shall do a proper one the next time and TAG it.
