The Missus was a “bit grumpy” today.
“Don’t take a photo of that!” she said…
It was a typical, if simple, Summer bento, more aimed at stamina than anything else.
The broiled unagi/eel bento in short!
The unagi had been bought ready-made at the local supermarket.
The Missus coorected the fishy taste by havin the broiled unagi rest in matcha tea for a while.
As for the broiled eel and steamed rice, they were laid in a two-tier style, very popular in Japan.
Plain tamagoyaki and home-made cucmber pickles for garnish.
(Shizuoka grown) cress, mini-tomatoes and walnuts for the salad, plums and grapes (grown in Yamamshi Prefecture, our neighbours) for dessert.
Simple but hearty!
