Osaka Ohsho is finally here in Manila! A Japanese restaurant specializing in the classic Japanese appetizer- GYOZA. They call themselves "The King of Gyoza" for being able to master the art of Japanese dumplings since 1969.
Osaka Ohsho opened its first branch at the 3rd floor of Megamall's new Fashion Hall (Building D). Being a gyoza lover myself, I eagerly accepted an invite to check what it has to offer.
Black Vinegar Chicken (P325)
A unique twist on the classic sweet and sour dish using black vinegar to enhance its flavors. Sweet and savory, tender and juicy, it's the perfect accompaniment to Osaka Ohsho's handmade gyoza.
Crab Cream Croquettes (2 pcs.-P225) and Original Chahan (P240-good for two)
The croquettes were filled with rich and creamy bechamel sauce but I couldn't seem to taste much of the crab.
If the Chahan didn't entice you, then Osaka Ohsho's Fuwatoro Tenshin Han (P310) will surely do.
This is their imported Koshihikari rice underneath a soft and velvety blanket of fluffy omelette. It's so fluffy! This is probably the fluffiest omelette I've ever tried.
Of course, not to miss is their signature Gyoza available in 3 flavors-
Original (P175-6 pcs.) Cheese (P190-6 pcs.) Nori (P190-6 pcs.).
Osaka Ohsho's gyoza is made with a proprietary blend of imported Japanese flour that produces a thin but sturdy wrapper. It is then filled with a special mix of three pork cuts, combined with ginger, garlic and cabbage. My favorites are Nori and Cheese.
Kushi Age Katsu (P335)
This is a platter of various katsu skewers such as gyoza, shrimp, eggplant, tomatoes, and chicken. An assortment of chicken, seafood, vegetables and pork served in Japanese-style deep fried kebab.
Bottomless House Blend Iced Tea (P98)
Fresh Mango Yakult (P125)
Matcha Milk Smoothie (P125)
Osaka Ohsho's drinks are served in a big beer mug which makes ordering one worth it. I got the Matcha Millk Smoothie which was sweet and milky. These are actually their recommended beverages.
Banana Tempura w/ Homemade Japanese Ice Cream (P330)
Japanese Parfait w/ Homemade Ice Cream (P280)
Homemade Japanese Ice Cream (P125/scoop)
