“Hanetsuki-gyoza” is a pan-fried gyoza (dumpling) with extra crispy layer around it
In Japan, dumpliing was bought from China by repatriates and veterans after the second world war. It is called “gyoza” from the Chinese name “ jyaozu.” Since then, it spread throughout Japan as meal or food with alcohol, and it has changed minor details in each area. 
“Hanetsuki-gyoza” became popular at Chinese restaurants around JR Kamata station in Tokyo about thirty years ago. It is said to be invented at one of the restaurants “Nihao (hello in Chinese)”at that time. Because of the crispy texture and the flavorful taste, it spread throughout Japan as food with beer in Izakaya (Japanese-style tavern).
