The Best Kobe-style Miso Gyoza and Ramen
The city of Kobe is full of exoticism. It has long flourished as a port town, where Western culture has taken root. There are many delicious foods in Kobe. This time, we’d like to introduce you to Kobe’s original gyoza and ramen, a must-try! By the way, I am Jupiter Ishida, I traveled around all prefectures in Japan and love eating. Let’s get started!
Where is Kobe, How to Get to Kobe?
Kobe is the capital of Hyogo Prefecture and is located in the Kansai region. It is a 30-minute train ride from Osaka and an hour from Kyoto. It takes about 3 hours from Tokyo by Shinkansen bullet train. Sannomiya Station is the center of Kobe.
What is the Kobe-style Gyoza
Gyoza is basically eaten with soy sauce and vinegar sauce, but in Kobe, it is eaten with a slightly spicy miso sauce. The original Gyoza-en was founded in 1951. The Miso Sauce was tried because it goes better with rice, and it was so well received that it continues to be served today.
Where can I try excellent miso-style gyoza in Kobe? I highly recommend Hyotan. Here is my favorite Gyoza restaurant. This popular restaurant was established in 1957. It now has six stores in Kobe. They only have Gyoza on the menu even though they don’t have rice which normally we find in gyoza restaurants. But there are long customer lines waiting for the gyoza. The original blend of red miso-based and moderately sized minced meat, etc., gives it an unforgettable taste when dipped in the one and only miso sauce.
How to eat miso-based gyoza?
First, with Hyotan’s special miso sauce. Second, mix vinegar and soy sauce (2:1). Next, mix vinegar and soy sauce (2:1). Finally, add raayu (Chinese chili oil) to taste. It is optional, you can add grated garlic.
Kobe has also great restaurants.
