To tell you the truth, I’ve never really had any experience with Japanese bento meals. I thought it would be challenging to try my hand at assembling one courtesy this food meme.
But this is a bit of a hack job coz I didn’t even have a real tiffin box. I’ve basically used whatever decent restaurant takeaway container I could find. Also, didn’t find the time to shop and buy nori sheets like I originally planned. So I just followed a rough outline of what is to be done and dug inside the fridge and came up with this last minute teddy in a romper bento. 😉
Well, that’s it. Meme accomplished. Like I said in the beginning, never set out to make a point. This was a purely fun exercise made even more enjoyable with Anupma Bakshi lending me company. I’d like to believe it’s only made us realise the extent of our potential and how much happiness food invariably generates.
So thank you Anu, this one’s for you.
