There's a new Japanese themed restaurant that we found along Malingap Street in UP Village. We accidentally discovered the simply named "Gyoza and Ramen House" while checking out another Japanese restaurant near it. The latter we saw but had no parking available so we decided to move on. Just before we maneuvered to turn back near Kalayaan Avenue, one of my companions saw what looked like a new establishment. In fact, we had to ask if they were already open as the sign still said 'closed' and we saw that they opened at 12:00 noon. Fortunately, the staff allowed us in and we did not regret trying out this restaurant.

|We like the way they used old Japanese newspapers as wallpapers|
|Their original gyoza (fried dumplings) are good|
|Chicken karaage (fried breaded chicken)|
|Yasai itame (stir fried vegetables)|

Gyoza and Ramen House restaurant is open for lunch between 12:00 - 3:00 PM and dinner from 5:00 - 10:00 PM. It is definitely a welcome addition to the Japanese themed restaurants in the UP Village area and we will definitely be back to satisfy the next time we have cravings for Japanese food.-
