Osaka Ohsho’s New Sexy Menu

By | Foodie | No Comments

In celebration of Osaka Ohsho’s 3rd year, they are introducing a whole new menu with many “ sexy” dishes! That is how owner, Linfred Yap, describes them. It’s a lot of fusion from Mexican tacos to Spanish Paella to Swiss fondue. A favorite is the Truffle Cream Chicken which is slices of chicken with crispy skin topped with bonito flakes with a creamy sauce. You can come in to have snack items like Nori Nachos where the nachos are made from seaweed and topped with gyoza meat, Japanese mayonnaise furekake and bonito flakes and Ohsho tacos which is an inside out gyoza. They fry the gyoza skin and use it as the taco and the filling becomes the topping.

The Relish Group of Companies is growing fast. Osaka Ohsho has three branches- SM Mega Fashion Hall, SM North Edsa and Glorietta. Wee Nam Kee has six branches. Kumori has four and opening six this year. Birdhouse has one at the Foodcourt of UPTown Mall BGC and Rock N’ Seoul with two branches.
