Gyoza Stadium = WIN  
Gyoza it is! XD;;

If you've never been to Gyoza Stadium in Ikebukuro Sunshine City (Namja Town), then seriously, you NEED to go! Everyone needs to go!! I can't recommend it enough!!!!

Cheese gyoza. Curry soup gyoza. Jalapeño gyoza. Shark fin gyoza. Need I go on? They carry all different kinds of gyoza in the little shops in Gyoza Stadium! It's set up to look like ancient Japanese stalls, and despite the huge crowds, it's a great ambience. I really wish that I could go every week, because I definitely would. =D;;

Then there is Ice Cream Town, and how many more I can't even name =D;;

Then of course, there is Ice Cream Town, which is the home of such delicacies as Viper-flavored ice cream... You know you want it!

These were cheese gyoza (cheese inside)

My very favorite: cheese-and-meat-sauce covered gyoza!!! Mmmmmm ♥

Mmmmmmmmmm these were crab meat shao-long(?) gyoza! Mmmmm!!

Butter and garlic gyoza! Mm!

This shop's name is "Big Man".... ^_^;;

Maybe it's just me, but... I thought this was a little bit racist? Oh Japan... ^^;;;;;;;;;;


Lindsay tries chocolate fondue! Mmm!

Okay now the ice cream journey (none of which I tried, since I lack money.. but one day!!)..

Uhh, double-cheese ice cream. But, isn't one bad enough? ToT;;

Potato ice cream..

Cream cheese flavor...

Sea urchin flavor.... ^^;;;;;;

"Scent of a cow" ice cream. Wtf? Well actually it says "scent of milk" but it's funnier in the first one. And still, wtf???

Salt flavor..

Beans flavor! ^^;

Garlic, oh yes, garlic... ^^;;

Ecco.... I don't know what that means!

This is garlic, and uh... mint? Not totally sure.

Indian Curry flavor! (yum??? Err...)

Cow tongue.... flavor.. WHY?

Viper-flavor! ^^;;

Pearl flavor... what flavor is that exactly?

Miso-ramen flavor..

Shark fin flavor..

Rice-flavored! (not so bad, right?)


More salt-flavored..

Pike-flavored (yes, the fish...)



Beef ribs, mmmm.. ^^;;


Tofu-flavor... not so bad-sounding..


Chicken wing... -_-;;

Baked eggplant flavor.. ^^;;

Beer-flavored ice cream seemed to be popular..

Mmmmm yuzu kit-kats in a prize machine! I want to try these one day if I can find them in the normal store!

I ended up having gelato... Tropical, strawberry, and raspberry-chili flavor! Yum!!

Beer-flavored caramel... not for the kiddies! ^^;;

A creepy lantern in part of the stadium..

LOL and this is on a wrapper from American food! Engrish.. XDXDXD;;

This says "BJ Low Chest"... can you see why I HAD to take a picture? XD;;

This one should be obvious XD..

And have some retarded purikura! XD;;

That's all for now! XD;;

I must visit this gyoza place if I get to go back next year. Gyoza is absolutely my favourite food ever, and I can't imagine any better way to ruin the fun of my local gyoza and leave it seriously lacking to me. Cheese and meat sauce covered.. Sounds wonderful..

Actually congitas is not a Japanese thing, that stuff is being sold in Portugal too (and it's good even though the logo it's kind of weird XD)
akibareakibare on December 25th, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
What is it? I've never seen those.

Miharuru ( ミハルル): Jin!Lumberjack!miharuru on December 25th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
Well I think there is some variety but it's mainly chocolate cookies or mini doughnuts O:

What is congitas?

"Horny substance flexible cream" will fix calluses or corns or other stiff keratin-esque places you maybe have on your skin. Bonus, it says it has urea in it...

But... must right-click save to show the office the interesting English :D

That place looks awesome. Here I like to make gyoza for parties, usually we get several people together to do the cooking and then eating. Back when I subscribed to Orange Page (housewife magazine) they had a gyoza issue, it's got some interesting ones but not cheese...

I did go to a takoyaki and go-playing party at a friend's house (so, yeah, we had to make the takoyaki seeing as it's Illinois and all) and someone had been back to Japan recently and got 東京限定! Shoyu-flavor Kit-Kats. They were white, we couldn't tell so much shoyu flavor in it but they were good. Funny thing though the one freshly arrived guy (only moved here about a month ago) didn't know that Kit-Kat isn't originally Japanese. But, they do get a way wider variety of flavors...

Interesting to see they say ネスレ now, too. Used to be ネッスル.

I do wish there were the green tea variety in the office vending, though. Man, that would rock.

All that cat stuff looks really cool.

That is truly Japanese right there. I want some Gyoza.... beef, with garlic. mmmmm
Kira_Shadowkira_shadow on December 25th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
we had some original family gyoza yesterday for our christmas dinner X3

we should make some together when I'm over?
it's really easy =3 (and you could stuff it with whatever you like~)

mh the ice-creams...I used to think most of them were really weird but actually in 5-star cooking there's some rather interesting recipes and dishes with those... I encountered mustard-dressing ice-cream with some kind of salad and stuff a while ago...

...cooking will never cease to amaze me...

*____* the ice cream... <3

Yay Namja Town!! We had so much fun in there during our visit earlier this year :D So awesome!

I've had tofu-flavoured ice cream. It's good! And you can get yuzu-flavoured KitKats at the combini. I love them. <3
秋野 ふじこakinofujiko on December 26th, 2008 12:56 am (UTC)
Oh wow, that gyoza place sounds really interesting. So many different types of gyoza!
And the ice-cream place too! I can't believe how many strange flavours there are...
Salt flavoured ice-cream reminds me of KHII (sea salt ice cream) >
bang.bang.korpsy on December 26th, 2008 01:11 am (UTC)
ecco la gelato means 'Here is the icecream'

but the way they wrote it is kinda grammatically incorrect so I guess they just put it there to make it more 'authentic italian' lol
Christina: Christmas Harley.totenkopf on December 26th, 2008 02:15 am (UTC)
Chocolate fondue! That looks good~ as well as the Gelato you decided to have. Out of all those flavors though, The miso-ramen and or pearl doesn't sound too bad! & wow, potato flavored ice cream! I would never imagine.
aly Says \ ألينramble_corner on December 26th, 2008 02:15 am (UTC)
LOL your pics post is always fun to look through

went 0_o at the ice-cream flavours but the gyoza looks nyummy ^__^
Soniaaoi_honoo on December 26th, 2008 02:20 am (UTC)
oh my god, I love gyoza....that place looks amazing. *_____* If I ever go to Japan one day, I'll definitely keep this place in mind.

LOL, the ice cream flavors (what would salt taste like??)....I think I'll stick to chocolate. XD;
pratz: alto_pratz_ on December 26th, 2008 03:06 am (UTC)
Food! Give me more! XD

For some reason, cheese and jalapeno gyoza just don't sit well with me ^^;;;
Vickytoldtojoinlj on December 26th, 2008 03:26 am (UTC)
Lawl, racism~ xD

I had heard of the viper and beer flavored ice cream, but I still got a kick out of the other ones you posted. Good stuff.
Janelle: Eddie Izzard - Ein minutenchibi_rei on December 26th, 2008 04:31 am (UTC)
I have tried garlic ice cream XP Don't try it. Trust me.
Kathykisa829 on December 26th, 2008 05:46 am (UTC)
The gyoza looked sooo good! You're making me hungry!

Those ice cream flavors sure looked...interesting! I definitely would love to check that place out myself one day!

My personal favorite of the Engrish was the "Horny substance flexible cream" XD
Williamgenkischuldich on December 26th, 2008 09:46 am (UTC)
Looks good... I'll have to try it. I've tried cheese (Gorgonzola) icecream before and it's pretty good. Like strong cheesecake, really.
hagelschadenhagelschaden on December 26th, 2008 09:53 am (UTC)
Those ice cream flavors are just strange. But I would try it xD
And pink chocolate? Yes please!
And Horny substance fexlible cream? what a name*lol* xD
(Anonymous) on December 26th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC)
That is gyoza heaven.

Everything looks so tasty...i'd have to be rolled out of there.
chibicerebuschibicerebus on December 30th, 2008 10:30 am (UTC)
Mmmmmm Gyoza! I want to eat there. My mouth is watering at the pictures.

Those ice creams are weird. I heard of some of those flavors from an article about the strangest ice creams from around the world. I wish I still had the link. On that list was the most unappealing flavor I ever saw... horse with chunks of flesh in it. That's my limit, I'd never willing eat that. ^^;
デスsurealistic_des on January 1st, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
that beats Utsnomiya's gyoza....h-hahha , kinda funny when Utsnomiya is meant to be famous for the gyoza ;D

I haven't been around Ikebukuro much, >: I hope to do that some time before uni begins again :3
athira ~アシラ~: Happinessathira on January 3rd, 2009 05:49 am (UTC)
Wow!! The Gyoza looks yummy! The food and the settings are all awesome!!!
