red rice bento


This weekend we visited a favorite Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco: Quan Bac, where we enjoyed red rice with crab and some salads, including a delicious duck-papaya salad. Both of these are in today's bento, bringing some of the savory festiveness of the weekend into the start of the workweek. Just one more reason to love bento!

Hi Bentobird! I own this bento box too, and it is my first and favorite box! You filled it with such yummy goodness, and the pink glads really pop. May I make it the icon button for the "Bento of the Day" flickr group?

Hi Judy! I always think of you when I use this cheery red Hello Kitty set and I'd be so happy for you to make it an icon button for "BOTD"!
Here's hoping the fiery day will cool down soon...cheers!

Hi Sheri, thanks for visiting and yum this was a lovely combination...a five spice element seemed to be in the dressing :)

Many thanks Miss Mochi! It was our first time seeing it on a Vietnamese menu--I'm glad hubby noticed and ordered :)
