I made sushi earlier this week and I didn’t have much confidence in my ability to make a proper meal with it all. I thought there would be more duds than there were. So I bought these just in case.
I have always been a big fan of Itsu. I have always found that their food has always been fresh and affordable and really filling. Unfortunately I do not live anywhere near an Itsu so have had to go without until they released their frozen range. I was finally bale to have Itsu at home!
These were very good. There are different ways you can cook them and we went with simmering them in water for 5 minutes. I think I may have had the water a bit too hot, as they cooked very quickly and they did start to tear slightly getting them out of the water. That being said, they tasted identical to the ones you can buy in store. You would not have been able to tell the difference. A little bit if soy sauce to dip them in and I was in heaven!
They were also still very filling. Combined with my sushi plate, it was actually a very big dinner by the end of it all. The gyoza was delicate while still having a nice little spice kick in the middle.
