hapa bento Information
Hello and Welcome!
What is “hapa”? Hapa is the Hawaiian word for “half” and usually describes a “bi-racial” person. It is also a term used to describe a person of mixed Caucasian and Asian or Pacific Islander ethnicity.
What is “bento”? Bento or Obento is the Japanese term for a boxed lunch.
We blog about our bento box lunches, restaurant reviews, recipes and other fun stuff going on in our lives.
My husband (Saba Man) and I currently live outside of Seattle, Washington with our two cats, suitably named Mochi and Musubi. We enjoy traveling, movies, and dancing. We also like dining out more than working out but try to maintain a healthy lifestyle by squeezing in occasional trips to the gym.
We both grew up in Hawaii where our culturally diverse diet included bento boxes. Our renewed sense of healthy eating has ignited our passion for packing a bento box full of nutritious foods in a variety of ethnic flavors. Hence the name “hapa bento”.
Our bento boxes are not only healthy and tasty, but they also celebrate our combined Hawaiian, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, African American and European heritages along with traditional Japanese bento foods!
I’m glad that you are here! And I look forward to sharing our bentos, recipes and ideas with you. I welcome requests so please drop me an email or leave a comment with suggestions you’d like us to try.
