Osaka Ohsho at SM Megamall

We finally got to try Osaka Ohsho at SM Megamall last week. We ordered the following set meals: Kiddie Prawn Tempura Set, Black Vinegar Chicken Set and Chicken Karaage Toji Set.

Dipping sauces: Miso, Osaka Ohsho Original and Chili Oil

You have three dipping sauces to choose from at Osaka Ohsho: Miso, Osaka Ohsho Original and Chili Oil. I was content with Osaka Ohsho Original for my Gyoza, while hubby preferred mixing Osaha Ohsho Original with Chili Oil.

Our meals arrived one after the other, and of course, no one could touch their food yet until I was done taking pictures. Lol! The first thing I noticed was where our main dishes were served. The tempura was placed in a small basket, the black vinegar chicken was served on a small platter, while the chicken karaage nicely sat on what looked like a small frying pan. I liked the variation!

Kiddie Prawn Tempura Set, Php260.00

When we were asking our son what kiddie set he wanted, he had nothing specific in mind, so I suggested the Kiddie Prawn Tempura Set. He was actually excited to eat because it was his first time to have tempura. He also liked the idea of having to dip the tempura in the sauce provided on his tray. He said “yummy” after his first bite, but after downing two pieces of tempura, he said he’s had enough. The Kiddie Prawn Tempura Set had three pieces of shrimp tempura, miso soup, Japanese rice and a small plate of watermelon and pineapple slices.

Black Vinegar Chicken Set, Php380.00

Hubby chose to have the Black Vinegar Chicken Set, which included the following: three pieces of Gyoza, a platter of Black Vinegar Chicken, miso soup, Japanese rice and fruits. It smelled like vinegar alright, but it didn’t taste extremely sour. It had a pleasant taste actually, and I enjoyed it more than the Chicken Karaage Toji Set that I ordered.

Chicken Karaage Toji Set, Php385.00

Like hubby’s order, the Chicken Karaage Toji Set also came with Gyoza, miso soup, Japanese rice and a small fruit plate. Hubby and I both enjoyed the Gyoza, Osaka Ohsho’s specialty, which was slightly crispy on the outside but meaty and juicy on the inside. The chicken, though, which was slightly soupy and topped with egg, was too salty, so I gave most of it to hubby.

Apple Lychee Soda, Php125.00 and Bottomless House Blend Iced Tea, Php98.00

Their Bottomless House Blend Iced Tea is infused with peach flavor, so it takes getting used to. The Apple Lychee Soda was okay.

Dinner at Ms. Pat Café

There’s a small restaurant that recently opened at the ground floor of the condominium where we live. It’s called Ms. Pat Café. We’ve eaten here more than once, and I was meaning to blog about our first food trip there if only our food pictures were not accidentally deleted by our ever-curious 7-year-old son who was tinkering with my cell phone at that time. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we had a reason to visit the place again. We used hubby’s cell phone this time to take photos of what we had for dinner.

Ms. Pat Nachos, Php170.00

We couldn’t help but rave about Ms. Pat Nachos. It actually looked simple with its basic ingredients (nacho chips, ground beef, melted mozzarella, tomato salsa, sliced black olives), but it tasted divine. We attributed this mainly to the ground beef, which was seasoned to our liking.

Spaghetti Bolognese, Php160.00

This Spaghetti Bolognese was for our son. He liked it the first time we ordered it for him, so we placed a repeat order. He wasn’t able to finish the entire plate this time because he wasn’t really very hungry.

Sausage, Php120.00

Hubby chose to have Sausage, one of their all-day breakfast meals which came with two sunny-side up eggs, sausage, fresh tomato salsa and garlic fried rice. He said it was okay.

Lemon Herb Fish Fillet, Php150.00

You guessed it right! This Lemon Herb Fish Fillet was for me. I loved the presentation, the huge serving size and its rich herb flavor.

Orange and Lemon Juice (Php75.00) and Grape Mint Juice (Php75.00)

We also tried two blended fruit drinks from their list of Coolers: Orange and Lemon Juice and Grape Mint Juice. We enjoyed them, too! They’re both refreshing and reasonably priced.

Heaven and Eggs at Glorietta 4

We had late dinner at Heaven and Eggs at Glorietta 4 last March 30 and ordered the following: Angus Beef Tapa, Pan-seared Dory with Mango Sauce, and Fish ‘N Chips.

Angus Beef Tapa, Php390.00

This Angus Beef Tapa was hubby’s order. It consisted of marinated Black Angus beef, two eggs (scrambled or sunny-side up), grilled tomato, lettuce, homemade atchara (pickled green papaya) and garlic rice. Because the serving was huge, I was able to try most of what’s on hubby’s plate. The beef was undoubtedly tender and had a hint of sweetness. Hubby enjoyed it a lot. I, on the other hand, really liked the atchara; it was good, not too sweet nor too sour, just the perfect blend.

Pan-seared Dory with Mango Sauce, Php310.00

I love anything with mango sauce, which is why I ordered this Pan-seared Dory with Mango Sauce. It was served with broccoli and baby potatoes. The veggies were well-seasoned and cooked just right. The fish, though, was way too salty, so I wasn’t able to finish it.

Fish ‘N Chips, Php299.00

The Fish ‘N Chips were for our son who was more interested in playing iPad games than eating his food. As expected, he ate only a few French fries. I tried his fish fillet and found out that it was salty, too, like my Pan-seared Dory. We let our server know about this, and he actually offered to have our orders changed, but we politely declined because it was already getting late.

Despite the saltiness of our cream dory fish, we still wanted to try other dishes on Heaven and Eggs menu next time. The courtesy and politeness of our server that night plus the yummy Angus Beef Tapa and their refreshing (and refillable) Heaven’s Signature Iced Tea were more than enough reasons for us to go back there again.
