They focus on one thing and they do it well. Gyoza.
At Gyoza Bar, you’ll find the style of gyoza called yaki gyoza which are pan fried Japanese dumplings filled with ground meat and vegetables. Gyoza Bar gets its ground pork from star butcher Hugo Desnoyer. The exterior bottoms are slightly crispy and chewy while the interior is very hot and juicy, so be careful when taking your first bite. You may want to initially chew off a small bit at the edge and let some of the heat out so you don’t burn your tongue.
Gyoza Bar’s menu offers a choice of either eight or twelve pieces of Gyoza with a few additional menu items including rice, edamame, nitamago (flavored boiled egg) and soy. They also had two desserts which at the time I visited were from Passage 53 and Patisserie Ciel.
And speaking of Passage 53, Gyoza Bar was opened by Guillaume Guedj and Chef Shinichi Sato of the Two Michelin-starred restaurant which also happens to just be a few steps down the passage.
