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!


Everything is clearly indicated as dictated by the Japanese law!


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


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


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


Now, what do we have here?


Grated wasabi dressing for the beef!


Pickled cucumber!


Two layers of succulent braised beef thin slices!


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


Red ginger pickles!

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