GO GYOZA! The top 5 ramen sidekicks!

At almost every ramen-ya around the world, there is a dish that understands its supporting role and rarely seeks the spotlight. A potsticker, a dumpling, or a pansticker. You can call it what you want, but nothing goes better with ramen than a plate of moist, juicy, garlic-infused, lightly-crisped gyoza. So before the soup cools, I give you the top 5 ramen-ya gyoza in Southern California:

  1. Foo Foo Tei (Hacienda Heights): Don't let its hairiness fool you. This unusual looking gyoza is by far the most flavorful and juicy. And don't mistake this Foo Foo with the Monterey Park location.

  2. Hairy Gyoza
  3. Daikokuya: Overrated or not, this gyoza is still one of the best. Its unique shape and blanket of green onions shall please all Seven Gods of Fortune.


  4. Shinsengumi: Despite their small size, these 一口 gyoza can knock your taste buds out!


  5. Chabuya: Gyozahh from Chahbuyahh...enough said.


  6. Kairakutei: These fat-stickers are clearly homemade and out to kick some butt!

So there you have it. Don't forget to mix the shoyu with vinegar and a few drops of rayu. GO GYOZA!
