Meal courtesy of Gyoza Bar Written by me! When a restaurant is talking bao, ramen, gyoza and dumplings this obviously calls for a party. JT and P joined me at Gyoza Bar to try a variety of what they had to offer. Gyoza Bar is a relatively new addition to the West End scene, and…

Kopapa

History and Background: Kopapa was one of those places that kept popping up on my Instagram feed, and having never had food from New Zealand, I took the opportunity to stop by.
