Today’s Bento/Lunch Box (12/08): Kinoko Omu Raisu/Mushrooms Omelet Rice Bento!

For once being very busy today I couldn’t look at the Missus preparing my bento and I had to wait until she brought it to my office before I could discover it!
She made a point to stand by while I opened the box so that she could explain the contents.
How kind of her!

She made “omu raisu/omelette rice”!
Well, we cannot see what is inside the omelet wrap in the above picture but I know that the Missus steamed the rice separately and that she fried the various mushrooms before mixing them with rice and seasoning!
After that, she made an omelette and filled it with mixed rice before turning it over into the bento box!
She then added Ameera Rubbins Pearl Tomatoes, parsley. sliced black olives and boiled Brussels sprouts (with some mayonnaise for the latter) for decoration and balance!

You can make such a side salad box only in Shizuoka Prefecture!

The walnut is not local but the lemon, baby leaves, mini celery and lettuce are.
But you can find fresh sakuraebi/Cherry Shrimps only in Shizuoka Prefecture (that is, unless you have a fat wallet in spite of their relatively low price here!). The Missus deep-fried them before sprinkling them over the salad.

A very well-balanced, nourishing and beautiful bento again!

  1. 😦 Sure beats my nasty, flavourless sandwich I had for lunch today – I don’t suppose you’d feel like starting up an express bento shipping service? For a small sum, I’d happily pay for lunches like this every day – delivery might be an option… hmm 🙂


  2. Fantastic! The cherry shrimps must be really delicious (I have seen them here so many times that if someone woke me up in the middle of the night saying “cherry shrimp” I would say “Shizuoka” 😉 )
    I have forgotten to try making the rice omelet… But I will! (Hopefully with a successful result thanks to your previous explanations).


  3. This looks great! Getting the omelette that neatly into the bento box is an art for itself. What is the trick? Practice, practice?
    The salad looks also yummy. By the way – my husband is a big fan of carrot-walnut-salad I have seen here and tried at home.

    I mean you could reserve this bento for the Best of 2012.

    Jealous – Bentolily.


    1. Dear Friend!
      There is no real trick. Leave the omelet spread inside the frying pan. Place rice in the middle. Turn the sides of the omelette over the rice even if it doesn’t cover it all. Place the box over it and turn araound!
      Thank you so much for your kind comments!


    1. Dear Susan!
      The posiibilities are almost infinite as it is composed of mixed rice and omelette!
      What don’t you try rice seasoned with tomato sauce and added with green peas, corn and parsley, a very popular here in Japan!
      Best regards.


      1. Feeling really guilty now as I haven’t managed to write a blog post in ages 😦
        Ah the joy of shift work 😉
        But just for you I shall attempt Omurice and write a post about it 🙂
