[Tokyo] Okei (餃子のお店 おけ以): Michelin Guide Tokyo-Covered Gyoza in Iidabashi, Walking Distance from Kagurazaka

Okei: Elevating Gyoza Artistry Since 1954 – Michelin Bib Gourmand Excellence

Since 1954, Okei has stood as a culinary icon, earning Michelin Bib Gourmand status near JR Iidabashi Station. Offering a daily selection of 1,300 delectable gyoza, Okei’s commitment to excellence is evident in the meticulously crafted fillings and wrappers using their exclusive recipe.

The three-day gyoza-making process ensures perfection, beginning with the transformation of coarsely ground pork on day one, followed by a flavorful blend with Chinese cabbage, chives, ginger, and seasoning on day two. Culminating on the third day, these masterpieces are delicately wrapped and pan-fried in a 9-millimeter-thick iron pan.

Okei’s gyoza experience goes beyond the ordinary, featuring six generously sized pieces on each plate, weighing approximately 25 grams each—surpassing the standard 15-20 grams of typical gyoza. For true gyoza enthusiasts, two orders offer a delightful dozen.
