After visiting the temple, we then headed down to Omotesando (stopping into the 100 yen shop, another mecca on four floors, en route) to find somewhere to have lunch. I had read about a cheap and tasty gyoza restaurant called "Gyoza Lou" so we decided to seek it out. After a bit of jigging around and going back on ourselves (and asking directions) we found the "hole in the wall" restaurant, which was a real find. We sat at the bar and watched the cooks perform their simple, yet effective art of steaming the dumplings in special mesh "pouches" and then frying them up to a scrumptious crispy consistency. This is definitely somewhere I will be heading back to.
