Gyoza Hamamatsu Ishimatsu Honten

Healthy Hamamatsu gyoza, filled with plenty of cabbage and pork, is one of the most popular gourmet foods in Shizuoka. They are wrapped in a sticky skin and grilled until crispy, then topped with bean sprouts in the center of the gyoza. It is a healthy gyoza that has many fans not only in Shizuoka but also all over the country. It is recommended to eat them freshly made with special vinegar and soy sauce.

It comes on a plate in a circular shape!

It is baked in a circular pan in a circular shape and comes directly on the plate. The appearance of the dish is truly a work of art. The accompanying bean sprouts, which originated in Ishimatsu, are also excellent.

Shizuoka Oden Ogawa

Shizuoka oden, a local delicacy, is stewed in a surprisingly black broth. The black broth has a strong impact, but the addition of aonori (green laver) and katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes) also makes the oden taste completely different from that of other regions.
Contrary to its pitch black appearance, the taste is light. The black soup stock is said to be made by adding soy sauce or miso broth to the soup by hand. All oden dishes are soaked in the broth and have become one of Shizuoka's famous gourmet specialties.

Oden ingredients are also distinctive!

Shizuoka oden is characterized by the addition of ingredients such as black hanpen and pork motsu (pork giblets) to the usual oden ingredients.
