Kahala MKT is featuring the highest-quality local rice products, including rice from The Rice Factory. This rice was grown in Japan and milled in Hawaii for maximum flavor and freshness. It is also offering a variety of flavors from Islander Sake, a local sake brand. In addition to these local grains, Kahala MKT is celebrating rice from other countries, including basmati and arborio.

It is also serving pre-prepared rice meals; two rice bowls and four flavors of musubi. Its musubi include unagi kabayaki, kimchi, salmon bagel and bacon with truffle. One bowl features garlic rice with lemongrass grilled chicken; the other is Indian-inspired and has mixed rice with pork and curry sauce.

Kahala MKT will be celebrating “It’s All Rice” throughout August; its in-house restaurant, et al., will also be serving a rice tasting menu through the end of the month.

“Foodland is a local company. We’re always gonna think about things that celebrate who we are. Rice is one of those things, and rice is such a big part of our culture that we thought it would be fun to do,” said Chef Keoni Chang.
