I think I might be in love with an inanimate object… my new bento box!
I have been hunting the Internet for a decent and reasonably priced bento box but not even eBay was coming up trumps. But last week I got lucky and found a supplier in Melbourne called Katachiware http://www.katachiware.com.au/ (and just in case you’re wondering, I’m not paid by anyone to promote any product, I just like to mention companies that I think provide a good product/service).
My husband and I bought a large melamine Kodona Bento Box – Black and Red Traditional – for $30 each (see photo above). The boxes were delivered by courier within 2 days and arrived in immaculate condition. Hooray!
You would’ve probably realised by now how much I love Japanese food. I often make a Japanese tasty plate (click here for more information) for dinner. So I am experiencing great joy having a bento box to divide up the dishes. It is so easy to whip up a few simple vego dishes, a small salad and some rice/noodles. If you make larger serves, you’ve got tomorrow’s lunch/dinner organised too. Bento boxes aren’t just limited to Japanese cuisine and could also include an Italian theme, a Moroccan theme, an Indian theme… the skies the limit! So go on and get yourself one, you won’t regret it!
Thank you Katachiware for making our bento dining dreams come true 🙂
