HamBEARger Bento

I like burgers. Who doesn’t? I’ve packed them in a bento or two. I’ve another hamburger bento again, but this time, instead of the usual beef plus salt and pepper patties I’m used to, I tried it Japanese-style.

Results? Flavorful, moist, and oh-so-cute.

HamBEARger Bento

Bento #94 • 16 January 2007

Contents, clockwise from top left:
• Rice with bear-shaped burger patty. To quote 24fps, Hambearger sports a kewpie mayo grin as he carries a tomato and spring onion tulip
• Shredded daikon adorned with tomato bits. And more tomato slices.
• More mini hamburger patties. I used an onigiri mold to make heart, star, and bear-shaped patties but they refused to retain their shape and turned into odd little lumps. The bear-shaped patty on the rice, I had to form with my fingers after going through the onigiri mold. Did so after I realized that the initial patties refused to retain their shapes. The orange thing on the patties are clumps of orange zest. The strawberry container held some Knorr liquid seasoning, a soy-based flavored sprinkle.
• Orange wedges

    I was wondering where you got that bento box. I’m looking for a basic single tier one with four cups in it. Two larger and two smaller ones like that one. All I ever find is flashy stuff and huge two tier ones!

      I bought it at a local fair that, unfortunately, comes only once a year. Where are you based? If you’re in the Philippines, those 88 peso shops have them at times. If you’re elsewhere, perhaps you can look into laptop lunchboxes? They’re a bit more elaborate but they might be good for your needs.
