Chiyoda Ward in Tokyo is famous for its many delicious curry restaurants, but of course, Chiyoda has much more to offer! Let us introduce some of Chiyoda’s hidden gems. This time, we introduce a long-established gyoza dumplings restaurant and a popular dim sum cafe where you can enjoy authentic Hong Kong cuisine!
Famous dumpling restaurant “Kanda Gyoza” using only the best ingredients
With a history of over 60 years, “Kanda Gyoza Main Store” is a well-known gyoza dumplings restaurant in the area. The restaurant offers 8 kinds of gyoza.
The motto of “Kanda Gyoza Main Store” is to provide safe dumplings. Therefore, the restaurant is very particular about the ingredients.
The specialty kurobuta gyoza is crispy and fragrant with fresh highland cabbage, healthy kurobuta pork, garlic chives, and chewy wrappers.
As a self-proclaimed “Gyoza Meister”, I had three types of dumplings, which were all delightful. No wonder this restaurant has been a peoples’ favorite for over 60 years!

Feel like traveling abroad at a Hong Kong-style cafe! “Hong Kong Chanki Chachanten”
In one corner of Iidabashi, there is a cafe-restaurant where you can enjoy authentic Hong Kong cuisine. The restaurant has a lot of fans. It allows you to enjoy imagine traveling (oh, how much I miss it!) to Hong Kong.
In addition to the popular lunch menu, you can enjoy various types of Hong Kong-style rice dishes, fried rice, and rice noodles.
But of course, I mainly ordered their famous dim sum.
When visiting “Hong Kong Chanki Chachanten,” be sure to order the egg tarts and pineapple bun (= bread baked with cookie dough on top of the bread dough). The egg tart had a slight egg scent and a pudding-like texture. Very nice!
The cafe-restaurant’s drink menu comes with plenty of legit Hong Kong-style refreshments. Their Hong Kong-style milk tea is the perfect match for their egg tarts!
