Taka Food Hall has several food stalls and small restaurants, particularly Japanese restaurants. While wandering about, I saw a stall with bento sets on display (those possibly made from plastic kind but still resemble the real thing to some extent). With my curiosity piqued, I decided to have lunch there. My friend and I placed our orders first and waited for seats. The staff ensured that the food was served only after we were seated.I loved the overall presentation of the meal, very appealing aesthetically. I had the fish with red bean rice set and it came with miso soup, and a small bowl of salad (the set cost around $12.90). The fish is very fresh and so it did not need much seasoning and the rice tasty, dotted with, of course, red beans. It has quite a sticky texture to it.Given the price paid, I had say it’s a good deal and would go back for more. Yummy and affordable Japanese cuisine. continue reading

I had one of their combo set for sharing with my sister, thus, we order the set with 2 different carbohydrate, soba and the okawa with scallop set, that comes with fried chicken as well. The soba was so different from what i was expecting! It is served hot, with light soya based soup. Not to my liking as i prefer slightly chewy noodles. For a hot soup dish, the soup was lacking in proper favor. The highlight is of course, the rice. It has a very chewy texture, like glutinous rice, and is properly flavored. There is no need for any other side dishes to goes with it. The only bad point about this shop is that the space is very limited. Finding a seat after ordering might be a problem. continue reading

If you're looking for a light and healthy snack to sate any hunger pangs from shopping, then Yonehachi in Takashimaya food hall is the place to go! It boasts a wide variety of traditional Okowa rice, which is steamed mochi rice with various fillings ranging from salmon to red bean. I decided to get the sampler bento set which came with 5 "sushi-sized" pieces of Okowa rice in the various flavours that they had to offer - salmon, prawn, chestnuts, red bean and shellfish. At $8.80 for a box, each piece comes up to be about $1.80 so it's about the price of a piece of sushi. It is definitely best eaten fresh and warm from the stall and my favourite flavour would have to be the salmon one as it was tangy and chewy. The rest were decent and tasted exactly like what their key ingredient is and although I would probably not repurchase the rest of the flavours, if I am ever ready for a light meal in town, this is one of the places I would definitely go. continue reading

I feel good eating here not just because the fare here is tasty but it is incredibly healthy! Basically this place specialises in Okawa Rice which is sticky rice cooked with beans, vegetables and seaweed. From red beans, chestnuts to salmon and sansai (a type of vegetable), each combination is as delicious as the other. Each set comes with a bwl of miso soup and some pickles. continue reading
