Convenience store releases 'Gyoza Pizza Sandwiches' for double feast

By grape Japan

If gyoza taco and okonomiyaki hot dogs were too ambitious a combination for you, why not keep things simple with a Gyoza Pizza Sandwich? Because at FamilyMart convenience stores around Japan, you'll be able to.

First things first--if you are perplexed by the "Pizza Sand" title, do not worry--this product does not contain any of the coarse and grainy beach material that Anakin Skywalker loathes. "Sand" is the unfortunate romanization many Japanese companies use for sando (サンド), which is short for "sandwich" (サンドイッチ).

The product is a new inclusion in FamilyMart's lineup of microwavable sandwich (or sand, if you prefer) wraps that are essentially soft tortilla Hot Pockets, and a collaboration with popular gyoza chain Osaka Ohsho. The Gyoza Pizza Sandwich, priced at 270 yen, is said to be a reproduction of the chain's dumplings (the wrap is stuffed with pork, cabbage, and chives) and to be like eating one giant gyoza.

So it's just a Hot Pocket in the shape of a gyoza?

I have been making gyoza sando for years. Fabulous on French bread with cheese, may, and dripping with the usual gyoza dipping sauce. Shumai sando rock too!

Had one the other day, it’s a wrap that tastes more like a gyoza than a pizza...not so bad.

There are 120 million people in Japan. It's for some of them, Not for you if you don't like it. And I know they will come up with Gyoza Ice cream.

Japan needs to import more cuisine from abroad instead of constantly hashing disparate foods into amalgams...
