Bento #37

I went fruit shopping over the weekend. I don't buy watermelon often because I always get the bland tasting ones but this was very sweet. Cut them up with cookie cutters.

Toasted a 'roti chanai' (Pratta) and dusted some castor sugar on top. Filled the remaining space with an Onigiri and a chocolate treat. #2 doesn't like rice during exam periods but Onigiri is fine, she said.

I mixed salt and sesame seeds into the rice and filled with some fried salmon which I added Kewpie mayo and freshly cracked black pepper. It was heavenly!! Look at this picture!
Sorry about the shadow, couldn't be rid of it no matter which position I shifted and I didn't have time to Photoshop or crop it!

That looks like a lovely lunch. Oh my goodness, you even took the time to cut the watermelon into beautiful shapes. I have not had roti canai with sugar for a long, long time! :)

judy: Check out your supermarkets, maybe it's in the frozen foods section.

I never buy the frozen ones because the fresh ones are available so easily. In PJ, every turn round the corner is a Mamak shop.

I usually buy home and toast in the toaster until the outer layer is crispy. The kids like it with sugar or Dhall but for bento, Dhall is too messy.

It looks delicious. I absolutely love the watermelon cut-outs.

I'm fairly new to bento and was wondering if you knew of any good places online that have a wide selection of bento boxes.

Thank you!

christine: Hi! Welcome! I checked your site and you're in US. See if you have a Daiso or Ichiban near where you stay. Daiso is a dollar shop and it's a Bento paradise.

E-bay buys are quite expensive. Good luck!

Christine said...

Thanks! I don't believe we have any of those stores around here, but I'll keep on searching. ^_^

christine: Check out Daiso's website: http://www.daiso-sangyo.co.jp/english/
Check for store information overseas and you'll see a list of 8 Daiso outlets in US.

Otherwise, you could start with the 'Lock & Lock food storage containers' they should be available in the nearest Target outlets. They have good choices too, though not so cute! They have the ones which are partitioned which is handy for Bento.
