Fried Chicken House

4 Nov

Get ready for all my #missingOsaka posts.  Haha!  I so miss Japan and being with my family!  Cannot wait for the next trip.  Luckily, we all got a 5-year visa!  Hooray!  So we’re already planning our next trip.  Haha!

We enjoyed Osaka so much.  Food trip siya talaga.  I really didn’t shop much but eat… oh yes.  You can enter any restaurant here and for sure masarap yung food!  So yes, we entered this restaurant because we saw pictures of one of our favorites… Karaage!!! Also lots of pics of chickens on their walls.

Everything in their menu was Japanese and no one really spoke in English, so I apologize I don’t know what this restaurant is called nor the exact address.  Haha!  I am so useless sorry.  Haha!

Thankfully all their menus always have photos which is a lifesaver!  So I got my favorite, the katsu chicken with curry of course.  Hehe… It was 824 Yen which is around Php 321.00.  Not bad at all!!!

I am also so glad that Damien loves Japanese food as well.  It’s not hard to feed him here.  Unlike when we were in Hongkong, all he ate was fried rice.  LOL!

My parents got the chicken with egg over rice dish 🙂  My friend, Isabel, said it’s called Oyako-don.  “Oya” means parent and “ko” means child… So the chicken is the parent? and the egg is the child? LOL.

There was no kiddie meal in this restaurant but Damien got his favorite… Chicken Tonkatsu 🙂

That one last breath before I devour my meal.  Hahaha! Bumebwelo lang 🙂

Have a great Wednesday, my friends! 🙂

Isabel and I LOVE Japanese food 🙂 Isabel is one of my best friends from High School and she’s our head receptionist at our little nail salon. Haha!  She celebrated her birthday last month and I was so glad she picked Mangetsu for her birthday lunch! 🙂
