Osaka Ohsho has gyoza set meals similar to tonkatsu meals but the only refillable item is rice. I ordered Black Vinegar Chicken Set so that I can try their gyoza and other menu. The serving is big, especially the bowl of rice. The gyoza is awesome and the chili sauce is awesome-r. Maybe next time I should bring friends here so that we can order the cheesy curry set. 128523128557128516

What's up, Looloo? It's been a while! 128556

So the bachelor decided to do a sort-of despedida dinner with us (his former colleagues) before flying to Canada for his wedding. We're supposed to be grilling in Yakimix but we're really surprised that we're booted out from the reservation list and told us that our reservation wasn't included. K. So, all the way from Podium, we went back to SM Megamall to try our luck in Viking's. The staff said we're number 32. 128517 Great!!!!

I immediately suggested Abé but it's packed. Only Osaka Ohsho and Linguni Fini have lesser people so we just went to Osaka Ohsho since everyone wanted rice and meat!

The first time I went here, it was good but nothing too remarkable so I let them decide.

We got the ff. for us to share:

Black Vinegar Chicken - Really love this at first bite! A little salty but was actually savory and tasty especially with its black sauce.

Japanese-style Crispy Chicken Karaage - The usual Chicken Karaage that's deepfried till perfectly crispy and juicy. We got two orders of this as everyone really love this!

Saba Shio Yaki or the Roasted Mackerel - Gotta love the mackerel fish itself because of its health benefits, and having it roasted is totally the best way to enjoy it!

All Prawn Tempura - Pretty average tempura. Nothing too special.

Gyoza - I like their gyoza though I thought that it's kinda dry.

Double Cooked Pork with Cabbage - Something like lutong macau but without the strong soy flavor.

We also tried different varieties of their Chahan and both are pretty good.

The serving of the dishes are usually good for 2 persons especially if you're getting more than 2 dishes. Price is pretty fair for its serving and its taste. My friend seems to like their food especially the Chicken Karaage and the gyoza.

Ohh. Last stop on my eating binge at megamall. Earlier ones will follow on my succeeding reviews.

So were looking for a place for dinner and we started at lugang cafe to 8 cuts to ooma until we reached osaka osho, looking at the menu we realized that their specialty was gyoza. Aha, perfect as i was game for another japanese food night. Little did i know i would be abit let down and disappointed as this was sandwich between great resto.

To start it would be nice if the menu wont be shoved to your face upon seated. 128556 we proceed to order their fuwatoro dish which has 12 pieces of gyoza with egg over rice that is good for sharing and pair of miso soup and small slices of watermelon and pineapple.

Our order took quite a while as i imagine gyoza wouldnt take that.long to be prepared. So i guess thats one missed thing here was tgat japanese was known for its efficiency and also requesting for spoon took a while too. 128533

Now as for their gyoza, its really was a disappointment for this visit as gyoza was too dry. Gyoza even stick to one another and need to be pry apart 128529 Now what do they lack that needs improvement ? First the inside of the gyoza needs to be tasty, even resto which specializes at ramen can get this right, it must be juicy and its juices would ooze outside upon first bite. It would also be good if doesnt stick too much to.one another and less burn at the bottom. All of which doesnt sound too impossible for a resto that specialize at gyoza.

When you're hungry and wanted to satisfy your hunger this is the place for us. Satisfied with the fuwatoro ala carte and beef with eggplant!

We were craving for something Japanese so we headed to the fashion hall because I know there are a line of restos there.

There are no lines at this resto that time and we were all hungry so we went inside.

I wasn't feeling okay that time because I was dizzy (low blood problems) but I remember that we ordered that chicken and beef toji set, tempura, Japanese milk tea, some side dishes. hmmm.. I forgot what my mom and my cousin ordered.

I really missed Japanese food but I can't finish my chicken toji set. But I can comment that the gyoza tasted good. :) Maybe I should come back again so I can enjoy it because I know it was good if only my body was cooperating that time.

We were 6pax and I think our bill was 3k++, I think the menu posted here is not updated.

Was again craving for some Japanese Fix.

I went for their World Famous Gyoza in the Original Flavor. I was honestly bitin from eating their Foodcourt stall- Gyoza Bar at Glorietta.

Aside from their Gyoza, I ordered some Chicken Teriyaki, Mango Salad and Katsudon.

Chicken Teriyaki- Pretty sweet and not dry. It was good, my little cousin enjoyed it.

Mango Salad- My aunt and cousin enjoyed it. They kept saying how good the Sauce was. You can always ask for extra dressing.

Katsudon- I prefered the one I had at Gyoza Bar. It was more tender and flavorful over there.

Gyoza- I love love love! Their soy vinegar sauce is yum! Ahhhhh! I can eat this all day !

Decided to buy something light for lunch today since I wasn't really hungry. Im currently in a dumpling phase, so Osaka Ohsho was instantly my top choice.

I like their gyoza, there's no doubt about that. The flavor is just right, plus the dipping sauce was really 128076🏻

Plus points for putting the sauces in a separate plastic bag in case it would spill.

But then.. The gyozas stuck to the paper at the bottom of the box. I had to remove parts of the wrapper so that I wouldn't ingest it. It's sad because I really like dumpling wrappers. I know, weird. 128514

Perhaps use wax paper next time?

GYOZA REVIEW

I actually had this when they had a P2.00 gyoza promo.

I had ALL of their flavours, which are:
🔹Original
🔹Kimchi
🔹Bacon and Cheese
🔹Curry
🔹Nori

All flavours were a 5-Star for me. Although, the curry was a bit too peppery. But it was still very good. They tasted delicious, with or without the sauces. I actually had 4 sauce bowls for 3 sauces. 3 unmixed and the other one's, all three. I just couldn't get enough of the gyoza itself and the sauces.

For me, they've got the best gyoza in Manila (So Far).

Value for money Japanese food. We ordered the fuatoro tenshin han ebi tempura set. For P650, the set came with 6pcs gyoza, 3 pcs tempura, 2 cups of miso soup and the fuatoro tenshin han ( egg omelet rice with special gravy). The miso and the tempura were average. The gyoza was good. The wrapper was tender and the contents tasty. The omelet was interesting because inside the thin sliver of egg was the boiled rice. It would have been pretty oridinary if not for the secret gravy. By itself the omelet could stand alone as a complete meal.

The promo was all over the internet! How could you possibly miss it! 2 pesos per gyoza promo! 128561128561128561

We came here early! Around 1 pm for their promo which starts at 3 pm! There were not much people at that time so we decided to shop at the nearby stores. We came back around 2 15pm and we were 25th and 26th already! Wow!

We finally got accommodated at 3 pm! Wow on time! Lucky us we got seats. Some people had to wait til we were done before they got seated.

2 of us availed the promo so we had 40 gyozas ! 20 max per person. We got all their flavors. Orginal, bacon and cheese, nori, kimchi and curry.

For me original and curry were the best! 128076🏻128076🏻 orders took awhile before they came. Their staff got a lot of things messed up. We got 44 pcs instead of 40 haha!

Also! I found hair on my gyoza ! OMG 128561128561128561128561
But, they replaced it immediately.

-1 star for that. 128545128545128545

We paid a total of 87 pesos for 40 gyozas128076🏻128076🏻128076🏻

Glad the place wasn't full despite it being a weekend when I came.

Ordered the Chicken Kaarage Toji Set. It was worth 490 pesos.

Orders came super super quick! Surprising! Less than 10 minutes. Wow!

The chicken was just okay. Taste like chicken katsudon. Nothing so special. The gyoza as usual was just perfection 128076🏻128076🏻128076🏻 that's what they are famous for anyways. The miso soup was also just alright. I find their plain rice awesome as well ! You can never go wrong with Japanese Rice! So plump and sticky haha I love it! Btw, plain rice was unlimited 128541128541 #pigmode 128055128055128055

As a fan of japanese food I love trying different japanese restos and if you're craving for gyoza, Osaka Osho is best for you but other than gyoza they still have a lot of exciting meals to offer! 127857

My nanay and I ordered the Ebi Fuwatoro Tenshin Han set because its good for sharing already. Each set comes from a serving of fuwatoro tenshin han, 2 servings of miso soup, 2 servings of fruit and ofcourse the heavenly gyoza. Ebi Fuwatoro Tenshin Han is served in a bowl of rice covered with omellete-like texture added with savory sauce and because we ordered ebi fuwatoro, it is topped with 3 crispy ebi tempura. Mouth-watering meal indeed! For our additional orders we ordered the Salmon Bacon. The bacon is wrapped around the salmon and drizzled with teriyaki sauce. The smokiness of the bacon plus the salmon goes so well together! (Perfect with japanese rice) Also ordered the Mixed Mushroom and Bacon, and yes again its bacon haha! But im quite disappointed with this dish because the bacon wrapped in mushroom is too thick that it became to chewy and it was so hard for me to take a bite but the mushroom inside is well cooked and savory 9786

The price is quite affordable because we ordered a set that is for sharing already and we just added some appetizers to complete our meal. Will surely come back for more! 128077🏻

Last Saturday, we had a quick choice of place. Less crowded and Japanese dinner with my dear buddies. Definitely taking a break from ramen and tonkatsu craze...getting focus with Gyoza.

The place has modern Japanese design all over and printed couches that is so chic. Browsing their menu, I find it affordable and reasonable.

We all settled having Beef Sukiyaki Set (P425). Yes! Gaya-gaya gustong mag-asawa mode kami 128521 The set includes miso soup, rice, 3pc gyoza, sukiyaki & fruits. I was quite overwhelmed looking at the serving. Prior to that I ordered their bottomless iced to (P98)... Do i was kinda half full. Their iced tea is not what I expected. Its not the brewed one that I love. But its ok.

All in all, this place has good food, although serving of food takes time. Plus for a set meal, its affordable compared with other resto. Seeing Japanese peeps in the place is quite obvious that they serve authentic japanese food.

Bottomless house blend iced tea (P98) had this flavor much like the peach black tea of Starbucks in a very big beer mug. We didn't even need seconds.

They claim that they have the world's best gyoza. Though I am really not a gyoza kinda gal, it was good for me. I ordered the beef sukiyaki set meal. It had 3pcs gyoza, rice, miso soup, 2pcs of fruit and the sukiyaki bowl (P420). So full! I love their sukiyaki. Now I know where to get my sukiyaki fix whenever I crave for one. Waiting time is 15-20 mins. I also noticed there were some Japanese diners there. So it must be good right.

When a restaurant declares itself as the 'best gyoza in the world', you better damn right anticipate that everyone is expecting THE BEST GYOZA in the world. No excuses, no sweet words, no pardons.

Oh man, let me tell you that it's one of the more delicious gyozas I've had the pleasure of eating. Of course, I can't say it's the best in the world because the gyozas at Harajuku Gyoza Ro in Tokyo are out-of-this-world delicious, nevertheless, you still can't mess with Osaka Ohsho's version and I'd come for those delicious gyozas any time of the day.

Really the best thing about Osaka Ohsho is that they gave the traditional dumpling a lot of twists. The cheese gyoza is amazing and I continue to believe that anything eaten with cheese is automatically better tasting. They also have the bacon and nori flavors which is the kind of inventiveness that I love.

The sets meals are such a bang for your buck. Get the Sukiyaki and Gyoza plus rice set. Soooo worth it. The sukiyaki broth was a little too salty for my liking, but nothing that I can't handle. Definitely come to this place for the gyozas, order an ice-cold bottle of beer, and call it a day, done and done. 128513

There are only two places I would go to for Gyoza, Mendokoro Ramenba and Osaka Ohsho. The latter will always be my first choice.

Before heading home, I decided to swing by Osaka Ohsho in Megamall for dinner.

Osaka's gyoza and yakisoba is the perfect tandem. I always order Nori and Original flavor six of each. I love the thin and sturdy skin. They put just the right amount held by the supple skin. I love the consistency with each gyoza and its delicious without question. They have three sauces available, original, miso and chili oil. You can mix them together or come up with your own combination. I like original and chili oil together for an added spicy kick.

I don't think I have ever ordered Yakisoba from other restuarants and I dont really have a comparison. One thing I know is that their Yakisoba is really good!

These two have always been my only choices everytime I visit. This time , I tried their new "maki" looking dish. Im not sure about the name but it's asparagus and mushrooms wrapped in bacon. It was good and very filling. I love the freshness of the asparagus and mushroom partenered with bacon.

Service was good but not great.

[Disclaimer: Late post.]

There are only a few times when I am willing to wait for a table when I'm hungry... when I traveled far just to get there, it's a new place, or there's a long line and it made me VERY curious.

We noticed a long line in front of a restaurant I haven't seen before. It looks... Japanese. And true enough, it's a restaurant that claims to serve the number one gyoza. It's Osaka Ohsho. I asked how many people are in line and there were a party of 12 before us. Yes, it's a long line but in my mind, long line means good food. And since we were not so hungry then, I had my name listed and waited.

It took an hour for us to get a table and we would have missed it if we didn't return. We were up next and we did not get any message from the front host.

As soon as we sat down, I already have dishes in mind. I remember the host mention the Black Vinegar Chicken set (PHP360) to be one of their bestsellers so I chose that while C went for a katsu set. I also got a half order of the Osaka Ohsho Salad (PHP195) and Fresh Mango Yakult (PHP125).

Service time wasn't that bad given the place was packed though I noticed that they were indeed pretty new.

First served was the Fresh Mango Yakult and I thought there would be mango bits or boba as shown on the menu but there weren't any and it tasted pretty much like your usual mango juice only this one was thicker and sweeter. Not really a thirst quencher. Plus the mug's handle was slightly sticky. (Sadly, there were no table napkins on our table.)

Next served was the salad. I loved this one. The greens were fresh and I loved the citrus dressing. I enjoyed munching on the crab sticks and the cherry tomatoes with the crisp lettuce. I skipped the caramelized walnuts though.

A few minutes after I finished my salad, the set meals were served. (We had to ask for spoons for our miso soup and since I really could not take it anymore, I also asked for table napkins.)

The miso soup hits the right spot as I was getting cold that night. It wasn't too salty to the point that it makes your throat itch.

The Black Vinegar Chicken though tasted like sweet and sour pork only it's chicken. I had a hard time eating it with chopsticks but somehow I managed (though I threw away looking decent while eating). The chicken was tender and was flavorful. It was actually good though I was somehow expecting it to taste different.

Now for the gyoza...

I had high expectations as who wouldn't? To claim you have the number one gyoza would make anyone curious. So one bite led to another and... it wasn't as special as I thought. What I noticed though was that it wasn't as oily as the others. I still prefer Kichitora's gyoza. (Then again, when I heated my leftover gyoza the following day, it tasted better! Weird.)

The meal was pretty good though I guess with the long line, I expected more.
