Osaka Ohsho: Bacon and Cheese Gyoza, Dessert Gyoza and More! (SM Mega Fashion Hall)

January 3, 2015 Mandaluyong, Metro Manila, Philippines

Osaka Osho also known as the "King of Gyoza" has been the first to introduce Japanese Gyoza in various flavors.  And, its no surprise that it has recently innovated new variants that has tinkered the curiosity of many especially its loyal diners and gyoza enthusiasts.



Food

Gyoza
Bacon and Cheese Flavor 6 pcs. (190 php)
If you liked the Cheese Gyoza, the Bacon and Cheese is the mega upgrade version for the same price too. 

Bacon and Cheese Flavor 6 pcs. (190 php)
We all loved the combination of the chewy savory bacon and creamy salty cheddar cheese. 

Appetizers & Salad
Our visit also brought us to explore more of Osaka Osho's dishes.  Yes, although specializing in gyoza, they have a wide range of Japanese dishes
Osaka Osho Salad Full (330 php)
The Osaka Osho Salad is a mix of iceberg and romaine lettuce topped with crab sticks, cherry tomatoes, candied walnuts, mangoes in sweet citrus miso dressing. 

Stir Fry
Black Vinegar Chicken (330 php)
I've tried the Black Vinegar Chicken and just have to it once again!

Yakimono Grilled
♥  Saba Shio Yaki (Roasted Mackerel) (310 php)
For a good source of healthy omega-3 that is the secret to long life of Osaka locals, we ordered the  Saba Shio Yaki (Roasted Mackerel).  It was grilled to perfection with clean sea richness that is made even better by eating it with a squeeze of lemon and grated radish.  It also has a wonderful soft and juicy texture.

Rice & Noodles
Yakisoba (348 php)
The Yakisoba is a flavorful staple or meal in itself with shrimp, beansprouts, mouse ear mushrooms and bonito flakes.


Beef Sukiyaki (380 php)*photo credits to ThePurpleDoll.Net
To have something hot and comfortably sweet soup, we ordered the Beef Sukiyaki.  It was served in a big bowlful of beef slices, glass noodles, onion, carrots and greens.   

New Fuwatoro Tenshin-Han
Ebi Tempura Fuwatoro Tenshin-Han (395 php)
The Ebi Tempura Fuwatoro Tenshin-Han is a 3 pc. ebi Tempura and vegetables dish laid on a soft silky fluffy egg mount filled with sesame seasoned Japanese rice.  It also comes with thick sweet and rice sauce.
 
Curry Cheese Tonkatsu Tenshin Han (450 php)
The Curry Cheese Tonkatsu Tenshin Han is also pork katsu with cheddar cheese filling laid on the same egg and rice but comes with spice-filled creamy sauce with carrot and potato cubes.

Look at the cheddar cheese oozing out of the katsu...


Dessert Gyoza
Peanut Butter and Banana Gyoza (210 php)
My family is a huge fan of Jif crunchy peanut butter.  In fact, since we were kids, I don't think it was ever lacking from our cupboard.  So when I heard that Osaka Ohsho has just concocted Peanut Butter and Banana Gyoza as a dessert gyoza.  I really wanted to try it out that this dessert alone is worthy of my visit.  And, it turned out to be better than I could even imagined.  It was so comfortably good.  The gyoza was warm with gooey and squished banana slices and nutty peanut butter with peanut bits and then paired with a cool scoop vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup.  If you find it difficult to imagine, think of it as a bite-size crepe with gyoza skin. 

Drinks
Fresh Lemonade (120 php), Matcha Milk Smoothie (130 php) and Fresh Mango Yakult (138 php)
If you're looking for a refreshing but simple drink, there's the Fresh Lemonade.  The
Matcha Milk Smoothie has improved since my last visit.  The Fresh Mango Yakult is another great choice.  

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
So glad to be back at Osaka Ohsho for its Bacon and Cheese Gyoza, Peanut Butter and Banana Gyoza which is a whole new dessert experience for me and other Japanese dishes.  Food is reasonably priced as serving size is good for sharing.
