Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza Main Cut

Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza

The dumplings are made of our famous yaki-gyoza bean paste and shaped into baseball and rugby balls, respectively. Just like the "Enjoy Baseball" made famous by Keio High School, the winner of this year's summer Koshien (the National High School Baseball Championship), we took a free-thinking approach in making the gyoza to create a dish that can be enjoyed both to look at and to eat. The baseball is a steamed gyoza and the rugby ball is a deep-fried gyoza, so you can enjoy two kinds of gyoza at once.

Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza" is a unique and jumbo dish.

Each plate of the "Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza" is a "jumbo" size, consisting of a baseball-shaped gyoza (approx. 100 g) and a rugby ball-shaped gyoza (approx. 100 g), which together weigh approximately 200 g, in reference to the "Year-End Jumbo Lottery". A complete serving is equivalent to about 8 of our yaki-gyoza, making it a satisfying meal. The chives that fill the plate can be sprinkled with the sauce and eaten. This is a double meaning.

Size comparison with regular gyoza

The two gyoza dumplings together are equivalent to about 8 regular yaki-gyoza dumplings (photo on right).

Sales period, price, quantity and campaign benefits

Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza" will be available from November 21 (Tuesday) to December 22 (Friday), the same period as the year-end jumbo lottery ticket sales, for ¥1,500 (including tax) with a draft beer, in limited quantities of five plates per day.

Customers who order this menu item will also receive one "year-end jumbo lottery ticket" (worth 300 yen), with the first prize of 700 million yen per plate.

A word from the owner

I have been a lottery fan for 30 years, but I love watching sports as much as I love winning the lottery. This year, the baseball world was especially exciting with the WBC in the spring, Koshien in the summer, and the Japan Professional Baseball Series in the fall, and I was thinking of new winter menu items to take advantage of the popularity of these games. I came up with the idea of "Enjoy Baseball Gyoza," inspired by the words of Keio High School, the summer Koshien champion.

However, we felt that this was not enough, so we decided to combine the name "Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza" with "Rugby," another popular sport that left a big impact this year, to create the "Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza. Since the name "Enjoy" is a pun on the idea of ignoring unpleasant things (steamed) and boosting one's luck (fried), we decided to offer two types of gyoza, steamed and fried. The set includes about 8 pieces of our special yaki-gyoza, which is a generous portion, so one glass of draft beer may not be enough.

We also decided that the baseball and rugby balls would look best on a field, so we filled the plate with chives, which are also used in the gyoza bean paste, to resemble a field of turf. Incidentally, we used chives because we wanted many customers to enjoy this new menu item without being scowled at by people who are not baseball or rugby fans (laugh).

Furthermore, as a lottery fan, we want our customers to enjoy the jumbo lottery ticket as well as the gyoza, so we will present a "year-end jumbo lottery ticket" to each customer who orders. We hope you will enjoy Enjoy Baseball & Rugby Gyoza and try to win the home-run jackpot at the end of this year!
