Elph’s Two Tier Bento

Posted on May 18, 2010 by Debra

Today’s featured bento is packed in a cute Elph’s Circus box  from our friends at  Japanistic !

Last month I featured  the single tier Elph’s bento with a bear motif boiled egg.  This time I continued with the bear theme using cheese and nori cutouts to make smiley bear faces!  Who wouldn’t want cute bears at lunch? 

This adorable bento box is filled with Saba Man’s favorite and not-so-favorite things and hold just enough for his midnight snack!   The top tier, along with the bears, contains a veggie burger omelet, sun dried olives, snap peas and enoki mushrooms.  The second or bottom tier has a mandarin, sweet potato, tomato, green olives, and pistachio crunch!  

If you’re wondering what his not-so-favorite things are…it’s the olives!   He tolerates them but in most cases he will skip the pickled types.

I love this bento box with it’s own matching fork and very secure bento belt!   The contrasting  colors are a nice surprise and makes for a very cheery meal!   This works out well for my hubby as he oftentimes dines alone.

Saba Man called to tell me how much he enjoyed his snack!   And he actually noticed that this was new bento box and didn’t mention the olives!  tee hee…

    Me too, olives don’t do it for me, But everyone else over here Loves ‘em! I do love pistachios though– they are my FAVE nut, and my fave gelato flavor :)

    Love the bears and the bento box is just as cute! Olives are just one of those foods that you either really like or don’t. I’m in the like camp, especially with briny ones like calamatas. Yum!
