A couple weeks ago I went down to Isetan looking for something to fill the stomach during the lunch hour. As it turned out, The Japan Winter Feast Fest was on going (28 nov – 8 dec, 2014). I walked around abit and saw this Japanese steamed rice stall that looked pretty enticing.

The stall offers two different dishes – Sansai Okowa & Chestnut Steam Rice. You can have them at RM 15 per portion, or alternatively, have them mixed with 1/2 portion each. To maximize my taste bud exposure, I chose the latter, of course.

They were both vegetarian dishes, with the Sansai Okowa, or wild vegetable sticky rice packed with quite a variety of mushroom and thus having a slightly savory taste to it which I like. The chestnut steamed rice, on the other hand, is packed with chestnut, sesame, and red bean which gave it a sweeter taste. I personally prefer the Sansai Okowa, but both were pretty good.

Isetan run these type of food fair pretty often, so be sure to check it out if you’re at KLCC. They also have a smallish eating area at the lower ground floor where you can noms away these takeaway food.

Transitions lenses work with many types of frames

The good thing about Transitions® lenses is that they are available with almost as many types of frames that normal prescription glasses will fit in.

For my pair of glasses I chose a fairly light frame that works well for when I am indoor (in office, at home) and also in higher intensity workout while outdoor (when mountain biking, running etc)

Discuss : KY eats – Sansai Okowa & Chestnut Steam Rice at Isetan KLCC

  1. I guess they’re healthier than our nasi lemak.

  2. They have a nice little food court in Isetan don’t they?

  3. KY, my fav was red bean with rice. The dish almost like mixed rice is mix sushi without the seaweed wraper. It popular in Hawaii for parties. Glad you enjoy the rice.

  4. I had something similar before in Japan, chewy-soft, love the texture. Rm 15 is quite expensive tho

  5. looking forward to what the Spring Feast Fest might bring to isetan klcc! 🙂

  6. I love chestnuts so much!!!
