Another Mass Bento Update


Another mass update, just to help me catch up. Lord knows I have tons of pictures, ready to be written up for posting, on my hard drive. Since these three are pretty ordinary, just let me do quick rundown for each.

Fish Tocino Bento

Bento #1 has yummy Fish Tocino prepared donburi-style over organic brown rice, sprinkled with some chopped green onions for added oomph. The fish tocino was purchased from Citra Mina, a frozen seafood store in BF Homes Paranaque. It was my first time trying it and I was pleasantly surprised. You wouldn’t think it was fish because it had a texture similar to pork. It’s great for those who are craving for a tocino fix but can’t because they need to avoid pork.

Peppered Pork Bento

Bento #2 is a simple enough affair. I took a pork fillet, dusted liberally with freshly cracked black pepper and a smidgin of salt, then fried. It’s too simple, yet it’s enough to make me happy. In fact, I kept pinching bits as I was putting it together, it’s a surprise I still got enough to eat for lunch. Along with that, I packed some left-over chorizo de bilbao, skewered with tiny picks for cuteness. Then, I steamed some green beans for my vegetable requirement. Oh, and I stuck an umeboshi (Japanese pickled plum) on my rice, just because I felt like it.

Lechon Macau Bento

Bento #3 is an all-out leftover bento from BF Homes Paranaque-based restaurant Toho Restaurant. A family-style restaurant, the servings are large so I got lots of leftovers last time my family ate there without me. Fortunately, even their leftovers are good, so I gladly packed them for lunch. Shown is their Shanghai Fried Rice, Lechon Macau (with pickled papaya) and Beef with Broccoli. The strawberry sauce container holds sauce for the lechon macau. I actually packed everything straight from the fridge, stuck it back in the fridge as I got to work, then just microwaved right before lunch. Happiness!

That’s it for this post. I still have a couple of backlogged bento posts, but since they’re of the cute persuasion, I’ll write them separately so I can include how-tos. Hope you guys look forward to it!

    @Suzanne
    Thanks! Hehe, dinaya sa pichoor 😛

    @Anie
    It was! It really doesn’t feel like fish. I highly recommend it.

    @Mrs. G & Chris
    Girls, fail ako sa diet. Wala akong karapatan magsulat tungkol sa diet bento 😛

    @ian
    Honestly, it occurred to me that it was a possibility—that a third party was responsible. Still, I do hope you’re able to iron it out with Google. I hope you understand that I had to make a report, lest the person behind it make good his/her thread.

    @Mimi
    Thanks Mimi! I guess I’m lucky that my location is conducive to taking photos :)

    @mrs lavendula and Bento Business
    Thank you so much! Fortunately, they tasted good, too. Especially the last one. <3 <3 <3

    @karissa
    Thanks for taking the time to backtrack 😀 And I hope you manage to find some of that fish tocino. It's really highly recommended.
