Eatchu, with their distinctive red gazebo and big smiley logo, are well known on Bristol’s street-food scene for their delicious Japanese gyoza. They recently took a permanent pitch in the ever-popular St Nicks market. You’ll find them tucked away down on Exchange Avenue, just off Corn Street, cooking outside but with indoor seating for cooler days too.

Their offering is simple but very well done. Handmade gyoza (filled dumplings) using ingredients from local suppliers are cooked in front of you in the traditional fry-steam-fry method, which means they are soft on the inside and crispy on the edges. And if they have a batch of shoyu eggs, you must get one. It’ll outshine any pickled egg you’ve eaten before.

With a constant flow of handmade gyoza sizzling away, the smell from this stall is enough to ensure there’s always a queue! Every portion can be customised, from your filling to your sauce and topping. My recommendation has to be the ton gyoza with spicy rayu and shibori. Want to know what that is? Visit their stall and find out for yourself!

Eatchu serve their gyoza at St Nicks market every lunchtime from Monday to Saturday.

    I had never tried gyoza before visiting this stall but it was so moreish! The blend of flavours with the dipping sauce was lovely and the dumpling was both soft and crispy, which I loved. The owners were very friendly too.

    If you are looking for fantastic gyoza which is fresh and hand-made in front of your eyes, then Eatchu is a must visit. The gyozas are delicious and you can choose from different meat or vegetarian fillings and a range of sauces and sides. If you haven’t tried this sort of food before then you are in for a real treat.
