My friend from Japan gave me a beautiful gift. Two Bentos! I’ve been looking around for them but haven’t come across any in London. I saw a nice one on Amazon but it was 33 pounds for ONE BENTO. That is crazy. I briefly mentioned it to her and she was so kind to get me 2 as a gift. I insisted to pay her back but she said it was from a closing down sale and it was pretty cheap (I’m hoping that was true) 😉 When people are kind to you – its just heart warming and worth a mention.
Since I got back I’ve had the urge to use the Bentos, so I finally did!
The eating experience was just so much nicer. An easy meal became an extravagant meal!
FYI – The Bento consists of Brown Rice, Grilled Carrots, Asparagus & Mushrooms, Pan-Fried Tofu Steaks with a drizzle of Teriyaki Sauce, Quorn Chicken Strips with Japanese BBQ sauce and sesame seeds. Garnished with Japanese Ginger and Wasabi 🙂
Thanks Trendy x

Always heard of bentos, but never knew wat would be there in it. I thought it was the name of the sectioned box. I know, i am soo silly! Hehe!
It is the name of the “box” the compartments! You are absolutely right.. And you can fill it with anything you like 🙂
It’s just a fun way of eating Japanese at home 🙂
