Besides ramen, yakiniku, and other Japanese classics, you probably want to have some crispy dumplings when you come to Kyoto, be they gyoza, xiaolongbao, or shui jiao. The Japanese way to enjoy these dumplings is with a pint of beer, so they’re especially popular among salarymen. While some of the offerings are more Japanese, like gyoza, some are very Chinese, but still popular in Kyoto, like xiaolongbao and shui jiao (shoronpo and suigyoza in Japanese). Compared to their Japanese siblings, these types of dumplings are juicier, while the Japanese ones are usually crispier. So let me take you on a dumpling-trip to Kyoto!
