Taiwan's Hot Star Large Fried Chicken 豪大大雞排 arrives in Manila!!!

Hot Star 6
Taiwan's world famous Hot Star Large Fried Chicken 
now in Manila!

Finally after so so so long!!!  Taiwan's famous Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken has arrived on our shores.  It has been my wishlist that someday this Chicken Chop chain would come to the Philippines, I guess my wish came true!  Thank you Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken.

So what's up with Hot-Star that has gotten me so hyped!  Well, I guess we can start with my love for Taiwan, their lovely weather, wonderful tourist destinations and of course a haven of great food!  From Taiwan Beef noodles, XiMending's famous "Ay-Chung Flour-Rice Noodle 阿宗麵線" and Hot Star Large Fried Chicken (豪大大雞排), these are all part of my must-eats everytime I visit Taiwan.

Other than in Taiwan, Hot Star Large Fried Chicken has opened shop as well in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong and even Melbourne, so glad they're finally here in the Philippines.

Osaka Ohsho World's No. 1 Gyoza arrives in Manila SM Megamall

Osaka Ohsho 7
Osaka Ohsho  - The King of Gyoza arrives in Manila

What is a Gyoza? Well for those who have yet to encounter gyoza, which is highly unlikely, unless you have been sleeping all through these years.  Gyoza is a Japanese name for dumplings, which originated from China which is why they are quite similar with the Chinese dumplings.  

Difference between a gyoza and dumpling?  Dumplings are either fried or steamed, while gyoza are steamed first then pan fried to give that crisp crust on one side everytime you munch on it.
