Hyotan might look like a dive, but its smoke-stained walls tell of years and years of making Kobe’s best gyoza. These dumplings are so popular they’re sent all over Japan as special Kobe souvenirs. This restaurant only makes gyoza, and they do it well. The filling is just classic pork, but packed with a punch of flavor. What really takes Hyotan gyoza to the next level, making it a Kobe classic, is the sauce. They are served with a rich brown chunky miso instead of the typical soy-based gyoza sauce. If alcohol is no problem, the best thing to wash down an order is a frosty mug of draft Asahi.
