Today’s Lunch Box/Bento (37)

Today’s lunch box is a bit of a repeat, considering it is more a combination of what I had before.
But I’m not one to complain!


The nigiri/rice balls contain beans and hijiki seaweed.
The Missus put the beans and hijiki seaweed on top of the rice before closing the lid and steaming the whole lot. Once ready, she will stir all ingredients before shaping the balls.
Home-made light rice vinegar pickles can be seen in the middle of the nigiri.
On a bed of lettuce she laid some fried veg including soft pimentoes, bricolo and Eringe mushrooms. She added some mini steamed “syuumai” (not home-made!)


The salad consisted of luccola and other light greens topped with plum tomatoes, yakitamago/Japanese omelette and presimmon wedges and mini-kiwi (with a red heart) slices for dessert!

Pretty full, I can assure you!

  1. Dear Joie de Vivre!
    The Missus will be happy to hear that!

    Dear Peppercorn Press!
    Well, well, that is a long comment! LOL.
    We are spoiled here in Shizuoka!
    Did you know that out of eight 3-star restaurants in Tokyo, three have their chef from Shizuoka Prefecture!


  2. This lunch looks amazing! I traveled to china a couple years ago (to adopt our daughter), and was served Japanese food on the airplane. Although we had a layover in Tokyo, we didn’t have a chance to visit the city. Going to get our daughter was a priority! I enjoyed my airplane meal none the less. Just last week I traveled to Cabo San Lucas with my family and the resort had a specialized Japanese Restaurant. The food was absolutely astounding! We ate at the restaurant and ordered in to our condo numerous times. Their combination of flavors was incredible and attention to detail was perfection. Imaging eating perfect sushi in Mexico of all places! Anyway, when I saw this post, my mouth started watering… I could eat it right off the screen. Too bad they don’t deliver internationally? Ha ha. Thank you for sharing.
