Saba Man’s bento is filled with shoyu chicken, broccolini, sprouted rice, beni shoga (pickled ginger), takuan (pickled radish) and nori (toasted seaweed).
Notice that I ran out of lettuce? Also, I couldn’t find my camera so I took the photo with my phone which didn’t turn out as well as I like.
I also feel a little awkward posting a bento without mention of the Japan earthquake. But I can’t find the words. It’s all so shocking.
If you are on twitter, I recommend following @makiwi (Maki of Just Bento) as she has been translating Japanese news for us. Her efforts are incredible; timely and succinct messages that are nothing short of amazing.
I applaud her tireless efforts to pass along factual information along with personal notes. What an incredible woman.
She recently tweeted ” for bento fans: scenes of tons and tons of onigiri being handed out to survivors…”
That tweet really touched me.
