The Gyoza no Antei potsticker chain in Japan is now offering a luxurious gold leaf-covered Asian dumpling item for a limited time.
Aside from just being a showpiece menu item, the Asian dumpling has been introduced for a specific purpose. Since tickets to Japan's biggest lotteries, the Dream Jumbo Lottery, are now on sale, the chain is hoping to offer good fortune.
Inspired by the Dream Jumbo Lottery, the dumpling is offered in a large size that is about four times larger than ordinary potstickers. As well as being coated in a lucky sheet of precious edible gold leaf, the dumpling has been stuffed with symbolic ingredients that are also meant to bring on wealth, such as octopus, okra, lotus root and mushrooms. Those who present their purchased Dream Jumbo Lottery ticket have the chance to receive the special dumpling at a discounted rate.
