Already home to everything from raindrop cakes to Nutella gyoza and salted caramel gyoza — and known to experiment with lemon meringue dumplings and marshmallow dumplings as well — Harajuku Gyoza clearly likes getting creative with its sweet treats. The chain is also fond of trying out new things with its savouring dumpling range, too, as its mac 'n' cheese and pepperoni pizza versions showed; however, it obviously has a soft spot for the kind of desserts that you won't find on any old menu.

From Thursday, September 1, that includes Japanese air cheesecakes, the latest addition to the Australian gyoza brand's dessert lineup. You might've seen them online. Afterwards, you might've tried to whip them up yourself as well. The viral recipe hails from the back of a cream cheese packet in Japan, and has won fans thanks to its simplicity — but getting someone else to make it is even easier, naturally.

Harajuku Gyoza now has its own two takes on the dessert available, both for $6. One comes dusted with kinako powder and paired with a pot of brown sugar syrup for you to pour over the top. Or, you can opt for the matcha variety of the fluffy air cheesecake, which features a white chocolate and matcha sauce.

Whichever you choose, you'll find them at the chain's four stores — two in Brisbane, one on the Gold Coast and one in Sydney.

And if you fancy tucking into the new gyoza after devouring two old favourites — cheeseburger gyoza, which is stuffed with burger pieces, aged cheddar, onion, pickles, mustard and tomato sauce; and mozzarella gyoza, which is filled with the obvious, then deep-fried and sprinkled with Twisties salt — that's up to you.

Harajuku Gyoza's Japanese air cheesecakes are available at all Australian stores — at Darling Harbour in Sydney; at South Bank and the CBD in Brisbane; and in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast — from Thursday, September 1.
