Yet another Japanese-influenced restaurant is due to open in London’s West End this month. Gyoza Bar will launch next door to sushi, sashimi and robata grill spot Murakami in Covent Garden on 15 February.
As one might expect from the restaurant’s name the menu features small dishes including gyoza dumplings, ramen and bao buns. Only local organic food is used and the ramen and gyoza are all made on site using traditional techniques.
Meat, salmon or vegetables gyoza dumplings will be served with an array of chilli oil, garlic vinegar and usami soy. You can choose either to have them deep fried, pan fried or steamed or all three. Gyoza Bar will serve seven different ramen noodle soups, as well as side plates like crispy tofu with teriyaki sauce, spring onion and chilli; deep fried salmon katsu on skewers served with wasabi mayo and bao buns.
To drink there’s wines, bespoke cocktails and Japanese beer or Sake.
