We first tried Osaka Ohsho when it opened earlier this year. We would eat there from time to time though — specifically when our cook takes the day off, lol! Anyhow a little over a week ago, we were invited to check out their new dishes.
First order of business was to order drinks. Hubby had the Apple Lychee Soda (P125, pictured above front) while I opted for Fresh Lemonade (P120, pictured above back). I forgot to have a taste of the lychee soda but then I really dislike lychee so… hahaha, I may have purposely pushed it out of my mind.
We ordered an Osaka Ohsho Salad (P195 for a half order, pictured above) to share since we’ve never tried it. It was surprisingly delicious and refreshing. It had crabsticks, sweet ripe mangoes, candied walnuts, and mixed greens drizzled with a tangy citrusy vinaigrette dressing. I highly recommend this salad!
Without further ado, we tried the first new offering: Bacon and Cheese Gyoza (P190 for 6 pcs / P380 for 12 pcs, pictured above).
OMG. I swear this is their best gyoza variant ever! Each crisp yet soft dumpling is filled with ground meat, bacon, and gooey cheese! You can really taste the bacon and the cheese. Kids (and well even non-kids) will love this! I think I ate 5 pieces.
I felt I wanted some hot soup to warm my tummy so we ordered Beef Sukiyaki (P380, pictured above). It was served boiling hot in a heavy metal bowl. It was very hearty and comforting plus I liked how it tasted. This can be shared by 2-3 people depending on how food you’re ordering.
Do you remember or have you tried Osaka Ohsho’s Tenshin Han? It’s their signature omelet dish wherein a super fluffy omelet is blanketed over sticky Japanese rice and then drowned in savory soy-based sauce. We had a leveled up version of it — Ebi Tempura Fuwatoro Tenshin Han (P395, pictured above). It’s basically the same thing with battered shrimp on top but wow, Osaka Ohsho’s Tenshin Han is to die for.
Next up was Curry Cheese Tonkatsu Fuwatoro Tenshin Han (P450, pictured above). It’s the same Tenshin Han BUT instead of soy-based sauce this one is swimming in curry. It’s topped with breaded pork cutlets that are filled with cheese. The flavors are too strong for me, I prefer the original Tenshin Han (or the tempura version) to this.
Last but not the least of the new dishes was dessert — Peanut Butter and Banana Dessert Gyoza (P210, pictured above). The same crisp yet soft gyoza is filled with bananas and Jif peanut butter! There’s a big scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream that goes so perfectly with it! Seriously I can finish this all by myself, it’s soooo good.
I really loved the new gyozas — they’re pretty kid-friendly too! I took home a dozen Bacon and Cheese Gyoza for the kids and they couldn’t get enough! We will have to take them to Megamall so they can have the dessert gyoza. With more things to order, there are more reasons to keep coming back. 🙂
