Kamonohashikamo Platypus Bento






This was my lunch for today: a platypus bento, inspired by the San-X character, Kamonohashikamo. As some of you might have noticed, this is another new bento box which I bought online some time ago but have not used until today.



This bento is relatively easy to make and took me about half an hour. The front box is filled with Platypus-shaped Omurice (fried rice wrapped in omelet), a few pieces of blanched broccoli, half a strawberry, a slice of ham, a pieces of grapes, kiwi and a thin slice of surimi.

The second box is filled with leftover mapo tofu from 2 days ago, stir-fried with egg noodles, a turmeric tinted hardboiled egg which is also supposed to imitate Kamonohashikamo, three slices of cucumber, red currant, a slice of ham, a flower cheese and parsley (?).


Which character should I make next? I am somehow rather uninspired... Could you help? But please ask me to make something easy ;).

Till next time :).

  9. This only took you 30 minutes? I'm jealous... :)

  10. @ Xinmei - I used lots of leftovers, that's why it didn't take that long to make :). I've never heard of Kero because I don't watch Cardcaptor Sakura, but I just googled it and I find him quite cute, but would be rather difficult to make...;)!! Thanks for the suggestions anyway, highly appreciated :D).

    @ Dania - Keroppi was actually my favourite character from Sanrio when I was a little girl. This doesn't seem to be too hard to make, I'll think about it. Thanks for the idea :)!!

  25. Hi CG! I can look at your obento box for a long long time appreciating your detail work. Are you accepting a request?! I have one! Well, I hope this is an easy one... Do you know Anpanman? My kids LOVE that Japanese cartoon show... well, I don't think it's cute character, so maybe it's a wrong one to ask for. =P Oh! We all love Totoro~~~. :-)
