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.

Holy Smokes BBQ

 The brisket loving hubby is on the continuous lookout for good brisket which brings us to Holy Smokes BBQ in PoblacionHoly Smokes BBQ (2) Holy Smokes BBQ (3) Holy Smokes BBQ (4) Holy Smokes BBQ (5)Holy Smokes BBQ (1)

We went to @holysmokesbbqph this afternoon and so lucky to see all handsome ? and hardworking owners there!! Carlo ( Toot Toot) Limjuco, Chef Red Espiritu &
Juano Guitierrez who are the guys behind the food and Paolo Quimson @paoloquimson When they are there you will see them all working including serving the sides, busing the tables and just helping where needed. Holy Smokes BBQ

My tip is to go as soon as it opens at 5pm so you get first dibs of the meats after they come out of the smoker and it’s not crowded for Titas like me :-)  Congrats guys and more power ! #holysmokesbbqph #bbqforthesoul #H2HPeople

Holy Smokes BBQ (6) So happy the owner, Toot Toot, was there when we arrived with his tall son! :-)Holy Smokes BBQ (20) Holy Smokes BBQ (7) Holy Smokes BBQ (8) Holy Smokes BBQ (9) Holy Smokes BBQ (17)Holy Smokes BBQ (10) Holy Smokes BBQ (11)  Literally Holy Smokes at Holy Smokes! @holysmokesbbqph Wagyu Brisket!! Chef Red Espiritu ( who is a teacher also at Chef Gene Gonzales’ Culinary school ) explains. They open at 5pm since they smoke their meats from midnight for 14 hours!! The hubby is obsessed with brisket and he’s so picky and I’m happy this passed his standards.   I like it too!!! Yum!! #HolySmokesBBQPh #H2HBBQ #BBQForTheSoul

( Toot Toot is the guy that brought in Crocs to the Philippines in 2004!  ) Another yummy Holy Smokes at @holysmokesbbqph is the Chicken. Smoked is healthier than grilled FYI and it tastes so much better and much more tender. Half a chicken for P320.00 and the sauce is so good too. This chicken has 11 spices and smokes for 10 hours #holysmokesbbqph #H2HChickenHoly Smokes BBQ (26) Holy Smokes BBQ (27) Holy Smokes BBQ (28) Holy Smokes BBQ (29)C lick below to go to their Facebook page
