Kaminari specializes in Utsunomiya-style gyoza, a pan-fried dumpling that uses a paper-thin wrapper. In Japan, Utsunomiya is a town apparently known for gyoza stuffed with experimental and non-traditional ingredients, so don’t be surprised to see bentos made with spaghetti, breakfast potatoes, and cilantro dipping sauces at this Little Tokyo shop. Gyoza can be ordered either pan-fried, deep-fried, or boiled, and filled with chicken, pork, shrimp, or vegetables. Order as a six-piece set or add them to that chaotically good bento combo above, either for a quick lunch or secret snack away from the office.
