Today's bento celebrates a beautiful box I received this week as part of the Bento&Co 2013 Bento Competition--was thrilled to open a box of carefully packed, beautiful bento items. This stylish box by Hakoben is probably my favorite of the lovely items shared. Thanks so much Bento&Co for sharing generously and promoting "bento love" through your very fun and well-organized event!
Inside the bento: brown rice, steak slices tastily marinated in a garlic-soy-yuzu sauce, daikon flowers and garden-picked shiso and Japanese cucumber, along with pink ginger pickles. A donut peach ends lunch on a juicily sweet note.
Happy bentoing, friends!
