One of my favourite snacks at Tokyo DisneySea is the Gyoza Sausage Bun which available at the Nautilus Galley in Mysterious Island. (You know, where the gigantic Volcano is!)
This is one of many popular snacks at Tokyo DisneySea, and in fact, people will line up for 10-15 minutes just to get one! During Halloween, like so many other things in the park, there is a seasonal variation such as the Black Gyoza Sausage Bun. Now, let’s talk about this delicious snack before I become too hungry.
What Is Inside
Gyoza originates from China and eventually made it’s way to Japan. It is “deliciousness” wrapped in a thin dough, but in this case, the dough is quite a bit thicker and the gyoza itself is rather large. Also, inside you can find:
- Ground Pork
- Nira Chives
- Green Onion
- Soy Sauce
- Sesame Oil
As mentioned earlier, the bun is rather large compared to the typical size of gyoza. It comes in a well-designed wrapper (which changes sometimes depending on the season). You can ask for a box to put them in too if you buy more than one!
The location in which the bun is found is fitting to the rest of the food in Mysterious Island. Over at nearby Vulcania, a cafeteria-style restaurant serves Chinese food. (Which is very smart in terms of theming. Remember where I said gyoza originated from? Very nice detail Disney, very nice.)
How Does It Taste
As I said earlier this is one of my favourite snacks at DisneySea. Naturally, I loved this and always have it when I visit the park. The combination of all the flavours from the pork to oil and everything in between makes for a delicious combination in your mouth. Pork and vegetables – you cannot go wrong! My only criticism is the amount of dough is a bit much. Your first couple of bites will be nothing but.
Should You Get It
One of the many unique snacks at Tokyo Disney Resort, I cannot recommend this snack enough. While the line can sometimes become very long (especially on the weekends), it is worth the wait. The ingredients may not entice some, but I encourage you to give it a try.
When the line is long, Cast Members will sometimes come down the line and ask you what you would like to get. They will then write it down, and give you a piece of paper to hand to the Cast Member at the register. Don’t worry, if you do not speak Japanese we have a small handy guide to help you out! Or to make things even easier, you can say the following:
- One gyoza, please
- Gyoza Hitotsu Onegaishimasu
