Osaka Ohsho – The King of Gyoza Arrives at Raffles City

Osaka Ohsho – The King of Gyoza Arrives at Raffles City
by

It’s about time that a shop specialising in gyoza opens in Singapore, since fried dumplings are always playing second fiddle to their ramen counterparts. Osaka Ohsho is said to be “The King of Gyoza in Osaka”, a franchise with more than 300 outlets in in Asia, and has finally arrived to Raffles City.

I was curious at all the Chinese-sounding dishes in this Japanese restaurant – like the Sichuan Mabo Tofu ($7.90), Ban Ban Chicken ($5.90), Hui Guo Ruo ($9.90) and Black Vinegar Fried Chicken ($9.90, $14.90 for set). That is because the gyoza specialist is also known for its Chuka Chinese-inspired dishes, so you can get the best of both worlds.

Like nearby neighbours Nam Nam Noodle Bar and Tiong Bahru Bakery, Osaka Ohsho has a long queue during lunchtime. (And you won’t miss the giant gyoza at the storefront.) Tables are aplenty, so the wait was not too long.

When you look at the prices on the menu, it’s little wonder why the attraction. $3.90 for six 1and $7.80 for twelve gyoza. That’s 65 cents per piece, way more affordable that some ramen shops selling them at least $5-6 for the same number.

I am a fan of different incarnations of dumplings, whether guotie, jiaozi or gyoza. But only when the skin is thin enough.

The verdict? The meat dumplings are delightfully pan-fried – loving its thinly crisp outer layer with skin freshly made daily with Japanese flour. The inner filling with pork and some cabbage and garlic, was slightly moist and could do with more juice. I like the bite-and-spurt like a xiao long bao feeling that it’s lacking. Know what I mean?

I finished all six single-handedly nevertheless.

Osaka Ohsho’s sets also come with three gyoza each, so you may want to portion it out or share with a friend. Unless nine gyoza is not a problem for you.

The table’s favourite was the intriguing Fuwatoro Tenshin Han ($9.90) which looks like omu-rice with mui-fan gravy. “Omu rice?” Waitress says, “No….. this softer.” Indeed the omelette blanketing over is quite fluffy, almost pillow-like with fluffy Koshihikari rice within. Definitely Osaka Ohsho’s star dish.
