Tiger's menu is devoted to gyoza dumplings, both fried and boiled. The signature dish is their extra-large Banana Gyoza, so named because of their elongated shape - these come with a voluminous pork filling wrapped in a thick, chewy, lightly charred casing.
Also worth checking out are the boiled dumplings (suigyoza), filled with an interesting mix of pork and chopped greens and wrapped in a green-colored hand-made casing. Dumpings are served a la carte or as part of a set meal with rice, soup and pickles; budget around Y1000 for a meal.
