While in Shibuya, we searched for a reasonably-priced restaurant that had enough seating for our family of 5. After a few attempts at other restaurants, we finally settled on Osaka Ohsho, which turned out to be a great restaurant that had plenty of seating, and a variety of menu options at reasonable prices.
Osaka Ohsho, which translates to "The King of Gyoza in Osaka," specializes in gyoza made with a mixture of cabbage, ginger, garlic and 3 kinds of pork wrapped in the restaurant's special wonton wrapper. With numerous locations all over Asia, Osaka Ohsho offers a variety of Japanese and Chinese dishes.
|Bean Sprout Ramen|
Gyoza Dumpling Set:
|Egg Drop Soup|
Marinated Fried chicken with Tartar Sauce Set with Dumplings:
|Fried Chicken with Tartar Sauce + rice, gyoza, soup|
|Sour & Spicy Soup Noodle with Vegetables and Meat|
We sure ended up with a lot of food, especially gyoza!
Each piece of gyoza was a perfect golden brown on the outside, with flavorful filling on the inside.
The marinated fried chicken was some of the best fried chicken I've had anywhere. It was so juicy and tasty, and it was really yummy with the tartar sauce (fried chicken with tartar sauce is quite common in Japan!).
The ramen and egg drop soup were both good, and the sour & spicy soup was as aromatic and colorful as it was delicious.
My kids' favorites were the chicken and fried rice.
Ordering was done via touch screen tablets, and at your table is all you need for your meal - chopsticks, napkins, wipes, dishes, and even a pitcher of water and glasses. The restaurant did not have regular-sized forks for the kids, but they did have toddler-sized utensils and dishes, which the server kindly brought out for us.
We had a great dinner at Osaka Ohsho, and the gyoza was indeed very good!
