heart attack gyoza

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

Obviously, these aren’t really called ‘heart attack gyoza’ but they may as well be. You have a filling of garlicky minced chicken, chicken fat and negi – so far, so good. However, these are wrapped not in floury wheat squares but chicken skin. Blistered by the heat of bubbling oil, salted and then dragged through a puddle of zingy, citrusy dipping sauce. These little artery bombs sits on a little bed of finely-shredded cabbage, a hint of lip service to health. But we all know these are a Southerner’s dream. This is a vascular nightmare in a mouthful and by God is it glorious.
