For delightful and delicious gyoza dumplings, look no further than Hassen. The restaurant dates back to 1953 and has become the most famous gyoza shop in Sendai, known for its tasty handmade pork gyoza.
The eatery is cramped and lively, tucked away in the Bunka Yokocho alley. A line often stretches out the door due to its popularity. Diners can enjoy gyoza grilled, steamed, or boiled and served in soup. Simple sides such as tsukemono pickles and fried rice complement the gyoza.
