      Winter warmers have arrived and we have some great winter dishes coming your way! Keep reading to learn more!

      Bowl of Charcoal Karaage Chicken with a Cast iron pot of bubbling cheese

      Arriving from June 2 is the Charcoal Karaage with bubbling Cheese Fondue Pot!
      This super tasty new dish is our popular Karaage chicken with added charcoal in the coating served with a bubbling hot pot of cheese seasoned with a sprinkling of shichi-michi!

      Now available at all Harajuku Gyoza locations for $14 a serve!

      Book your visit to try the Charcoal Karaage Fondue now!

      What is Charcoal Karaage Fondue?

      Created by our kitchen team, our Charcoal Karaage Fondue is sure to be your favourite winter warmer in no time at all!
      Enjoy the delicious smell of shichi-michi seasoned bubbling cheese fondue as it arrives to your table. Stop and listen to the satisfying sound. Then pick up your chop sticks and dip the chicken in the pot of cheese! It’s so tasty you will keep going back for more and more, and that is okay! If you need to, order again, and again, until you are full like sumo.

      If you find yourself thirsty from all the Karaage chicken, order yourself a drink! Choose from Yoyogi Japanese craft beer, Yummy cocktails or tradition green tea (served hot or cold). If you choose craft beer, we suggest you try Yoyogi’s Pale Ale. It’s our most popular beer on tap, and it tastes good. If Pale Ale isn’t your favourite, try the lager or ask our team to try a different beer on tap. We have lots to choose from especially in our Beer stadium locations with the Yoyogi brewery onsite! Where else can you get fresh Japanese craft beer and fried chicken inside the brewery?

      We look forward to seeing your happy faces soon to try the new winter warmers here at Harajuku Gyoza!
