My family and I just visited Tokyo Disney for a couple of days and we had to try some of the special snacks and foods they have. Tokyo Disney is famous for special snacks like flavored popcorn (curry, chocolate, strawberry, and more), pork or chicken in a Chinese bun shaped like a Mickey hand, mochi balls shaped like the Toy Story green aliens, and the famous Tokyo DisneySea Gyoza Dogs (see review here)!
Most (um…all) of these snacks are not 90/10 friendly, but most of us aren’t looking to be super strict when on a trip to Disney anyway. So, we sampled. We split things to just get a few bites and taste the different unique treats.
One of our favorites ended up being the Tokyo DisneySea Gyoza Dogs. They are basically a large gyoza bun stuffed with pork sausage and cabbage. The pork is cooked and then stuffed inside the gyoza dough and then steamed.
If you don’t know, Tokyo DisneySea is the second park at Tokyo Disney. If you’re familiar with Disney in Anaheim, then you probably know that there are two parks: Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. It’s very similar in Tokyo. There’s Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
You can only get these Gyoza Dogs in one place in Tokyo DisneySea (as far as I know). You can find them in the Nautilus Galley near the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride.
Although we enjoyed many of the fun treats on our Tokyo Disney trip, the Tokyo DisneySea Gyoza dogs were one of the few I felt I could easily turn into a healthy 90/10 recipe. Although, I may have to try to recreate that strawberry popcorn without all the sugar!
For this recipe, I made a 100% whole wheat gyoza dough. I also ended up using ground beef instead of pork because it is easier for me to get quality beef usually. You can use ground pork if you want to be closer to the original but it’s yellow tier in 90/10. You’ll also need some sort of steamer for this recipe. I used a bamboo steamer as shown in the pictures below, but you can use any steamer basket.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
