Tiger Gyoza in Hiroo is an inexpensive but yummy restaurant to have a quick lunch or dinner. The speciality is gyoza (dumplings/pot stickers) both fried and boiled. Tiger Gyoza is a chain with locations in Shibuya, Akasaka and many other locals around Tokyo, but we frequent the one in Hiroo. Have a play date at the Azabu Community Center, or wonder through Arisagawa Park and then head over for a late lunch or early dinner.
