鉄鍋餃子 // Iron Pot Gyoza
In Fukoka, they cook gyoza in what looks like an iron souffle dish, and they come out sizzling. The coating on top, made of flour/starch and water, is called 羽根 (hane / wings) and it adds a wonderful, crispy dimension to the dish. And I’m not sure how standard this is in Fukuoka, but this restaurant serves them with soy sauce and yuzu kosho (柚子胡椒), a paste made of yuzu citron and chili pepper. It’s fucking fantastic and since I ate these I’ve been experimenting with yuzu kosho in all kinds of dishes!
