Cold gyoza?!  
Err, that's right.... cold gyoza. Seriously.

Trying to catch up on the posts that I've been wanting to write but haven't had time to (this is a recurring theme these days, lol), last week sometime (err, when was that?! Not a clue..) I went with Kira-chan and Ulrike to check out the cold gyoza fair at Gyoza museum in Ikebukuro namco town.

Errr... while I HIGHLY recommend Gyoza museum (they have a good variety and the setting is great!!), I can't say that cold gyoza really wasa a winner... ^^;; I had gyoza shaved ice, and... well, afterwards I wish that I hadn't. I kind of assumed that it would be sweet (am I the ONLY person who has ever made gyoza and put chocolate or strawberries in the middle? Certainly not... o.o;; right?), but what I got was.. well, regular gyoza, on ice. If that's your thing, then go for it! But I prefer mine piping hot unless they're filled with chocolate and strawberries. :3

Sushi gyoza.... These were Kira's, not mine, but I heard that they weren't too good.

Wasabi-soup gyoza (not too bad!)] Guess who chose this?! XD

And the MOST AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS gyoza so far: Cheese gyoza with cheese wings! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!! It was LOVE. Seriously, LOVE. Better than the meat-sauce-with-cheese gyoza from last time. Mmmmm!

Kaki-goori (shaved ice) gyoza. So wrong in so many ways. ^^;;

Another thing about going to Namco town (it costs 300 yen to get in the door, but Gyoza museum is insidde...) is that the Ice Cream stadium is also there!! This is where you buy the famous snake ice cream and stuff like that... But I opted for the YUMMY new Zebra ice cream.... It's black sesame and milk, don't worry =D

And this was Ulrike's, but inspired by the 'deco' fashion trend, Deco ice cream... LOL

I love gyoza, and I love cold somen noodles, but I don't think I'd like cold gyoza. I'm not even a fan of cold pizza. Some things are just meant to be nice and hot imo.

Cold gyoza...*cringes* But I bet strawberry and chocolate gyoza would be awesome! My bff's mother makes blueberry pierogies which I guess would be similar to strawberry gyoza and that's delicious! Yum...

That shaved ice also looks super yum...the deco one looks intense!

Cheese and gyoza, sounds good~

I wish I could take you to eat some gelati over here =3

I don't think I would be a fan of the ice, but cold gyoza is on my top yummy foods list. I like it leftover straight from the fridge for breakfast, like pizza. :)

Thanks for making me crave sweets even more when I shouldn't be wanting to eat them...oh the curse of cavities and sensitive fillings. xD

But I seriously started LOLing so hard when I saw the gyoza...damn Massu for making it so funny whenever I see or hear someone mention gyoza...but its really good, I just want some decent gyoza sometime. xD

I like cold gyoza, and I like cold fried chicken. Both are good picnic foods, for me, because the work well cold.

But that cold is just "picnic basket cold," not frozen style cold. That would be weird.

I can't deal with cheese though :)

/realizing it's... lunch time

OMG. Now that makes me hungry. o.o

I must try and make strawberry and chocolate gyoza. Because that does sound heavenly.
