Who would've thought adding bacon and cheese to gyoza would work so well? Osaka Ohsho's new Bacon & Cheese Gyoza (P 190 6 pcs/P 380 12 pcs), adds layers of distinct and bold flavors to the familiar gyoza. And like they say, bacon just makes anything a lot better. And so it is with Osaka Ohsho's new Bacon & Cheese Gyoza. Crunchy honeycured bacon bits and creamy gourmet cheese blended with lean ground pork, shredded cabbage, garlic, and ginger in Osaka Ohsho's signature Japanese flour wrap...you can just imagine the blend of flavors. The salty and smoky notes of the bacon and the rich, creamy cheese play well with the traditional gyoza stuffing, and the new seasonal variant isn't shy at all with flavors. Like all of Osaka Ohsho's gyozas, each is delicately steamed and pan-seared for that perfectly soft, chewy, yet crisp texture. At Osaka Ohsho, each bite delivers contrasting yet balanced textures, and the bacon and cheese round out the flavors with its flavorful punch. Dip your gyoza in miso sauce and repeat. Seriously good.
Osaka Ohsho's Nori Gyoza, flavored with the distinct notes of Japanese seaweed, is another faavorite, with yet another flavorful spin to traditional Japanese gyoza.
In between, go for Osaka Ohsho's Agedashi Tofu, another signature dish to complement your meal. Soft, silken Japanese tofu with a crisp layer in mildly flavored broth made with mirin, dashi, and shoyu, topped with spring onions and dried bonito flakes, always a winner.
If you're still hungry, go for Osaka Ohsho's new Fuwatoro Tenshin Han Combination Offerings and Sets, guaranteed to satisfy serious appetites. The Fuwatoro Tenshin Han Mabo Tofu (P 380), a hefty bowl with Osaka Ohsho's light and fluffy omelette dome on steamed premium Japanese Koshihikari rice topped with sweet and spicy Japanese Mabo Tofu, a blend of silken Japanese tofu, minced pork, and minced bell peppers. The blend of flavors and textures in this one dish is impressive, as you go for yet another scoop.
The Curry Cheese Tonkatsu Fuwatoro Tenshin Han (P 450), with crisp pork tonkatsu stuffed with cheese on a fluffy omelette filled with premium Japanes Koshihikari rice with thick Japanese curry. The combination of crispy pork tonkatsu with cheese, omelette and rice, and the spicy Japanese curry is comforting, and this one's a meal in itself.
All these new Fuwatoro Tenshin han Combination Offerings are available in Set Meals good for two persons as well, with six pieces of Osaka Ohsho's world-famous signature gyoza, miso soup, and fruit plates. Now that's a cool deal.
For dessert, why not try something different. Osaka Ohsho's unique Peanut Butter and Banana Dessert Gyoza served with a side of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup (P 210) is definitely a new flavor experience. Just imagine mini crepes served Japanese style as your flavor peg, and you get the picture. Filled with Jif Crunchy Peanut Butter and caramelized bananas stuffed in Osaka Ohsho's signature soft, chewy and crisp gyoza wrapper...perfect. Elvis would probably love this one too.
The rich and smooth vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup completes the flavors for that comforting hot and cold contrast. The traditional gyoza wrapper is just so versatile, it has the perfect mild flavor and soft, chewy and crisp texture that can go with pretty much everything. Like bacon and cheese. And peanut butter and bananas. Gyoza with a creative and flavorful twist, perfectly executed at Osaka Ohsho.
