Shizuoka Ekiben/Railway Station Bento: Hamamatsu Mikkabi Beef in Kakegawa JR Railway Station!

Mikabi in Hamamatsu City is not only famous all over Japan for its oranges but also for its beef!
Yesterday I had to stop in Kakegawa City and had a look at the ekiben/railway station bento they had on on offer when I discovered this new one among he more than half-dozen displayed.
I didn’t hesitate!

As it is sold in its box and cover!
Note the oranges harvester between the oxen!
And also the three little guys with their drinks including Japanese sake!

SN3O5461

Everything is clearly indicated as dictated by the Japanese law!

SN3O5462

Jishotei Bento Company in Hamamatsu City must be one of the oldest in Japan as it was founded in 1824!

SN3O5463

The food inside is protected by a rigid transparent vinyl lid!

SN3O5464

One more sheet of soft transparent vinyl further protects the meat inside!

SN3O5465

Now, what do we have here?

SN3O5466

Grated wasabi dressing for the beef!

SN3O5467

Pickled cucumber!

SN3O5468

Two layers of succulent braised beef thin slices!

SN3O5469

The rice was steamed with Mikkabi ornage pulp for great taste balance!

SN3O5470

Red ginger pickles!

A bit expensive but really tasty and lighter than expected!
Perfect on a train trip!
