Osaka Ohsho - The King of Gyoza is in Manila

The King of Gyoza is in Manila: Osaka Ohsho's first branch in the Philippines is Now Open


There has been a steady stream of foreign restaurants opening in Metro Manila for the past few years. Restaurateurs have been bringing well-established restaurants from other shores to ours. I’ve noticed that a lot of these establishments come from Osaka, Japan. It comes as no surprise really because Osaka is a famous foodie paradise, its citizens are obsessed with food.

Eating is regarded as a veritable past time which is why it’s no wonder that there are a lot of good places to eat in Osaka. Our latest import from that gourmand Japanese city is none other than Osaka Ohsho.
