Bento Shopping at Saizen (Daiso Philippines)

11 Egg Molds
One common question I get is where you can get egg molds. Well, I’m finally answering those questions: at Saizen! They usually come in sets of two. Just pop a hot hard-boiled egg in then let it cool.

12 Egg Shaper
If sunny-side up and eggs over-easy are more your thing, molds for them are also available. Set these silicon shapes on a hot pan, crack your eggs, then allow them to cook within the shape’s borders.

13 Onigiri Mold
Saizen also offers a range of onigiri molds. From traditional triangle shapes, to cute ones that make faces and even mini versions.

14 Onigiri Mold and Case
They also have dual purpose molds-slash-onigiri carrying cases. These are more hard-working than the usual molds and it’s definitely nice when you’re rushing in the morning.

15 Ice Tray
Cute ice trays! Aside from making cute ice shapes, these can also be used to mold jelly, pudding, even RICE! See? More onigiri possibilities, as long as you keep your mind open.

16 Sauce Container 01
Sauce containers are important because they add another layer of enjoyment to our packed lunches. Aside from the usual fish-shaped ones commonly used for take-away, Saizen also has cute shapes in varying colors. Get a pack and color code them for the various sauces you use: soy, vinegar, fish sauce.

17 Sauce Containers
For thicker dipping sauces, mayonnaise and cream-based salad dressings, mini-cup style sauce containers come in handy. These are also good for dry ingredients, like salt and grated parmesan.

18 Sauce Bottle
When you need even more amounts of sauces, these squeeze-bottle style containers are great. These are what I usually use for things like tonkatsu sauce or ketchup.

19 Cute Soy Dispensers
These little sauce containers, I just shot because they look awfully cute. Imagine having those lined-up in your kitchen? Sunshiney cuteness!

20 Sauce Dispenser
Ever wondered how they make those even mayo / sauce stripes on takoyaki and okonomiyaki? They use these dispenses. One squirt and you have 3 evenly spaced lines. Single opening bottles are also available. They’re good for line drawing designs, too.

    I buy a lot of bento supplies at Daiso but I don’t use them, most of them are just too cute! Great to know there’s Saizen in the Philippines!

  2. Leki says:

    Do you know, Saizen is set to open in Robinsons Parañaque soon! I’m excited! 😀 I rarely go to Galleria and Trinoma is too far!

  3. ziggy says:

    Hi Kao, do they also sell japanese ingredients?

  4. kaoko says:

    The Daiso there is insane! I remember I went totally nuts, spending a couple of hundred SG first time I set foot there.

    Booo! Robinsons Paranaque is too far from me. It’s the one near Raya Gardens right? I wish they’d set up shop at ATC or something.

    Shop there, we must! Although I’m sure your wallet cries too.

    Yes! But it’s just a shelf or two of premade sauces. If you’re looking for raw ingredients and other mixes, still best to visit your friendly neighborhood J-grocery.

  5. Leki says:

    It’s the one near tropical hut, conti’s and ruins 😀 It’s nearer than rob galle and trinoma at least xD

  6. Yay! Will expect more bento posts from you now, since you went shopping. Haha! I love Saizen. Looks like they improved their stocks. More bento boxes to choose from. Yay!

  7. Kat says:

    I never knew that Saizen had a “no photo” policy (although on a personal level, I try not to take pictures in stores etc, just to be safe hehe). Also, I think Ali Mall in Cubao has a Saizen too, but I haven’t been there.

    Looks like I’ll be heading to Saizen this weekend to stock up on bento stuff. :)

  8. kaoko says:

    Ang lapit nun! Please let me know when it opens. *hugs*

    Hay, I wish. I’m hoping to get back on track with life and stuff, pero baka matagal pa yun. *sigh*

    They never told me off but they have small signs near the entrance. I have been told off at Japan Home Center / Daiso though. Tried asking for permission pero never ako pinayagan so I guess it stuck with me.

  9. abby says:

    thank you for posting this! :) we’re homebound in december and i can’t wait to go to saizen to stock up on bento supplies for my son and myself!

    ps: any idea where their store in Trinoma’s located?
    pps: namiss ko ang blog mo!

  10. kaoko says:

    It’s inside True Value, somewhere along the ground floor.

    Namimiss ko na rin mag blog! Ang dami kasing nangyayari sa buhay, but hopefully, I can get back on track this weekend. 😀 My backlog is sooooooo big!

  11. I love the pictures. I want those cocktail picks for my Christmas dinner/ noche buena. It will look good on some of the finger food.

  12. kaoko says:

    Great idea! Your pica-pica will definitely look unique.

  13. Token says:

    Thanks for sharing all the great photos! Daiso is so amazing! <3 I wish we had one near us ;_;

  14. cyferredrose says:

    this is a very handy guide to what is available int he philippines! i have gone on three shopping sprees there and gotten all i need for bento making. I wish there was a store guide like this around before i went and bought it – it would have been very helpful!

  15. kaoko says:

    They are! I’m happy we finally have one here. Years ago, I’d include it in my things to do when flying to other countries. Now I don’t have to :)

    But it’s also fun to poke around the store and look around yourself. I’m sure you had fun doing that too :)

  16. cyferredrose says:

    yes, i end up spending more than i had in mind too! haha.
    Japan home is also nice to look at now and then – i got a really nice porcelain set. If you go to saizen at Robinsons Edsa they are near each other. New hatchin is more on the ingredients side of things, but i got a japanese pickle maker there for around 200-300 PHP.

    I havent confirmed it yet, but i also heard of a japanese surplus store in paranaque that is mostly deserted, but this is still a rumor.

  17. kaoko says:

    Paranaque??? *hmmm*

    New Hatchin is awesome! It’s just unfortunate that I rarely go there now, since we moved offices. Oh well :(

  18. Tara says:

    Hi Kao,

    This is the reason why I stopped asking you where to buy those bento stuff. I found them. hahaha. I will be forever grateful to your kindness on buying my first ever bento accessories and sending them here at the office.

    Thank you thank you thank you.

  19. kaoko says:

    Heaven no? I’m happy nahanap mo s’ya. There’s untold joy in shopping for your own goods.

  20. Laura says:

    thanks to your tips, I had fun browsing and shopping at every Daiso / Japan Home Center branch I checked out on my recent trip to Manila…found and bought a few items I couldn’t resist. I wanted to get the egg molds but unfortunately the branches I went to didn’t carry them…I will the store!

  21. kaoko says:

    Their stocks are really seasonal, unfortunately. I’ll keep an eye out for egg molds. If I find some, I’ll try to get some for you. Will just email if that happens :)

  23. kimy says:

    just til nw did i realize that its different from japan homes ill try to look at it bec im desperate to find nori cutters, im happy ive found your site (subcribed!) :)

    • kaoko says:

      Both Saizen and Japan Home stock nori cutters from time to time, so it’s best to check them both, though I’ve spotted them more often at Daiso/Saizen than Japan Home. Good luck finding them, Kimy!

  24. Kaye Catral says:

    Hey Kaoko, any new places where we can find bento tools? Saizen doesn’t stock too much, they’re always out of stock! Or maybe everyone’s into bento and buying them all up!

    I need more barans!

    • kaoko says:

      I have shitloads of baran here at home, yes, panic buying from overseas much? Or let me know if there’s anything you need, the Saizen in Cavite isn’t as well-known, so I can still score fab bento stuff there. 😀 (Hit me up via the contact page or via FB message :D)

  25. Mau says:

    Waaaaa! I tried searching for it in Daizo Cebu but to no avail. :C Waaaaa!!! I want to go there!

  26. Marian says:

    Was looking for tips on the best places to buy bento stuff from and stumbled upon your blog. It took me a while before I realized Kitchen Cow = Chrissie Peria. =D
