Shizuoka Ekiben/Railway Station Bento: Shizuoka Charcoal-grilled Beef in Shizuoka JR Railway Station


Although I already sampled all the ekiben/railway lunch boxes on sale at Shizuoka JR Station I always keep an eye in case a new one or seasonal one appears.
I did well to do last Friday before taking the train to Kikugawa City as I discovered this new one put on sale beginning of September!


The whole as sold with chopsticks and toothpick!


It is advertised as “Sumi Yaki Fuu Gyuuniku Bento”!
“Suni/炭” stands for “char coal”, “Yaki/焼き” for “grilled”, “Fuu/風” for “manner/way/method”, “Gyuuniku/牛肉” for “beef” and “Bento/弁当” for “lunch box/box lunch/boxed lunch”!


As usual Tokaiken Co. clearly sates the contents, price and consumption date limit as required by the law!


The food inside is efficiently protected by a rigid transparent cellophane lid.


Now, what do we have?


Very simple, but elegant and tasty!
The charcoal-grilled beef slices with additional seasoning provided with golden sesame seeds.
The lettuce is very fresh!


You can enjoy the beef, lettuce and rice separately, but if you are clever with chopsticks pick the beef and lettuce together!
Very tasty but comparatively light.
For the pleasure of both genders!

  1. Lovely bento! Probably one of the rare I would be able to decipher partly at least (beef and pork kanji are among the rare I have memorised 😉 ). I am a pork and chicken person. I have always hated beef apart from steak tartare (which I could have every day) and (its other extreme) curry-like spicy dishes in sauce, the fact which makes life a bit difficult with French family because, as you know in France everyone loves roast rare beef, rare beef steaks, etc.. and they are frequently served. Now, after two visits to Japan, I can say it’s the only country where I love beef! And I don’t talk only about the expensive fatty parts of wagyu; I have loved beef in every single dish I had, even an appetiser of chopped and seasoned beef tongue. Incredible, isn’t it?
