Healthy Gyoza? Best Gyoza Ever at Haru Ulala

kiwi01 | Oct 20, 2009 09:55 PM

Just went to Haru Ulala for lunch. I don't think people know they are open for lunch. I didn't and walked in. Only 2 people there around 12:30pm. Normally I go at night for the izakaya dishes.

The best gyoza ever! They are handmade, with a thinner skin and no excess wrapping. The chef says its made with no hormones or msg and fresh kurobuta pork, cabbage, leek, and garlic.

Ordered Ginger Pork lunch specials ($8.95) and Chicken Karaage ($7.95) that came with 3 pc gyoza, rice, miso soup and salad.

Had 5 or 6 varieties. We ordered a veggie gyoza on the side. Regular was tasty could use a little more pork. The veggie was out of this world with tofu, spinach and tomato.

Several dipping sauces for gyoza. Jalapeno and spicy mayo dips were good. Preferred the traditional version and they had the chili which was great.

Would go back again. I think they want to be like Din Tai Fung or Dumpling House for gyoza. They do a poor job of marketing. Food is good not great. I would come for the gyoza alone.
