My son and I were famished the other day after our movie session in KL Festival City MBO, and I decided that getting ourselves some snacks will do us no harm. Initially, I thought of going for something heavy, but then again, dinner was still quite far away and I wouldn’t want to spoil our appetite.

I spotted a vendor selling some typical Japanese street-food, and instead of going for the usual ‘takoyaki'(octopus balls) I decided to buy Okonomiyaki instead.


Okonomiyaki is a type of savoury Japanese pancake that’s made from flour batter, vegetable and meat scraps as well as some seasonings and served with generous topping of shaved bonito flakes and mayonaise. I ordered a set and it merely cost me RM2.90. The portion was rather small, but it was enough for both of us.


The taste? It was awesome. The Pan fried Japanese pancakes was filled with loads of shredded cabbage and octopus. My son hated veggies, but he gobbled this one up, so I suppose Okonomiyaki is a good way to trick my son into eating some greens.

So, ladies and gentlemen, I’m sure some of you have issues in feeding your kids greens too. Tell me, how do you trick them into eating greens?

Cleffairy: Itadakimas!!! πŸ˜€
