Dinner at Osaka Ohsho 大阪王将 @Nex Ajisen Gourmet Town

The Ajisen Gourmet Town at level 3 has recently gone through a facelift and re-opened with the popular franchise brand Osaka Ohsho 大阪王将, the Gyoza King from Osaka. Other than gyoza, this place also serves up Jap style Chinese cuisine, similar to my fave 551 Horai (551蓬莱, also from Osaka).

Value for money set meals and new enticing food replicas on display.

I arrived before 6.30pm on a Friday evening and managed to beat the queue and get seated in less than 5mins.

They are now using the iPad electronic ordering system. Just tab on whatever you wanna order and click 'Send Order', and the food will be served in a couple of mins.

Our drinks, Hoji Tea $1.90++ and Ice Lemon tea $3++. Nothing special.

Hubby's Mapo Tofu & Double Cooked Pork set $14.90++. The Mapo Tofu is not spicy at all, such a big difference from the yummy 陳麻家 Mapo Tofu in Osaka! The Double cooked pork 回鍋肉 was just so so only, nothing to rave about. Hubby also didn't find the gyoza special.

My Chicken Tenshin Han set $13.90++, is a fancier variant of the Signature Fuwatoro 天津飯 set $12.90++. It was a thick omelette egg wrapped fried rice with roast chicken cubes.

This dish was indeed rather yummy. The thick omelette was light and fluffy with a texture of smooth steamed egg. The fried Koshihikari rice with roast chicken meat was flavorful and tasted good with the thickened clear gravy. I enjoyed this dish as there is no comparison with anything I've eaten in Osaka.

The gyoza was good but not great, however at the price of $3.90++ for 6pcs and $7.80++ for a dozen I don't mind eating this again. The skin was quite well made with good resiliency but I would've prefer the pork filling to be more moist and juicy. Overall, it was a decent dish.

The egg and carrot soup that comes with every set meal was forgettable.

I'm not too impressed with the food served here at Osaka Ohsho. I would save the 10% service charge for something else and just buy takeaways from now on.

  1. what is the i pad ordering technology program? I want to know the program of the ordering system

    1. hi,
      u can engage an IT company to implement this for u. the ipad ordering system is widely used in newer restaurants in singapore. the ipad has the entire menu stored in it, patrons can order whatever they want, select quantity and submit orders electronically to the kitchen.
