Ekiben/Railway Bento Boxes are many, even in Shizuoka City (don’t worry I will soon investigate other cities!) and this stimulates a healthy competition not only in ingredients and taste but also in design!
So this particular ekiben called “Fuji no Mikaku/不二の味覚/The only taste of its kind” came as a triangular box!
The wrap made for some beautiful design!
A small “tongue” helps you open the box. The latter is very light and easily disposable.
Tokaiken Co. went as far as providing a menu card inside! Makes for a cute souvenir!
As usual a translucent sheet of hard paper protected the food!
Alright, what do we have here?
Chahan Sakuraebi Chirashi/Rice steamed in tea and decorated with fried Cherry Shrimps.
From bottom up, left top right:
Jelly for dessert
Nibutaniku/simmered pork with bits of yuzu/lime
A small bottle of wasabi miso sauce
Jyako Iri Tamagoyaki/japanese omelette with sardine whiting
Shiitake mushroom, sweet konbu/seaweed, carrot, peas in the pod, kabocha and bamboo shoot.
For a better view of the tamagoyaki!
And for a better view of the tamagoyaki’s companions!
The miso sauce was delicious!
Top corner from bottom up:
Tofu Hamburuger (no meat, all vegestables with some seaweed)
Renkon Hasami Age/Deep-fried lotus root sandwich
Kuro Hanpen no Tenpura/sardine fish paste (a Shizuoka specialty) fried as tempura
For a better view of the last two with their fresh lettuce!
Very healthy and perfect balance!
To be continued!
