I made this bento last week. It contains rice topped with umeboshi (pickled plum) and cucumber, chicken katsu (Japanese style chicken schnitzel), yakisoba (fried noodles), korokke (potato croquette), tamagoyaki (rolled omelet), shibazuke (pickled cucumber), cherry tomatoes, mayonnaise and tonkatsu sauce (they're inside the blue and pink mini containers).

Chicken Katsu - serves 2 

2 chicken breast/thigh fillets
1 egg
1 tbs oyster sauce
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbs all purpose flour 
Panko bread crumbs
Oil for frying
  1. Mix egg, salt, pepper and oyster sauce together.
  2. Coat the chicken breasts with flour.
  3. Dip the coated chicken breasts in the egg mixture.
  4. Coat the chicken breasts with panko bread crumbs.
  5. Repeat steps 3 - 4.
  6. Fry the chicken breasts until golden brown.
  7. Drizzle with tonkatsu sauce and mayonnaise. Serve with rice.

My husband had this bento a few days ago. If you still remember, I told you that I made him a bento box with the same menu as mine. But he also had a piece of Korokke (Japanese croquette) and stir-fried bean sprouts which were missing in my bento.

I have to postpone my report about the things I got from Bento&Co for now as I am really short on time :(. Hopefully I'd be able to do so in the next few weeks.

I participated in a bento contest last July organised by Bento&Co. Due to your kind support, I won the second prize :). I got a 10,000 Yen voucher plus some bento boxes and accessories from Bento&Co. I received so many extra goodies apart from the items I chose using the 10,000 Yen from Bento&Co that I was totally flabbergasted (positively...;)) when I opened the parcels I got from them. I will report more about the wonderful goodies in my next post as I am quite short on time at the time being.

This gorgeous wooden bento box is one of the things I chose from their online store.

If you're interested to buy this, click the link over here. It costs 7,500 Yen (around €75). Indeed expensive, but worth the money as it's really flawless!! I am very happy with the box and now it belongs to one of my most favourite bento boxes :).

I filled the bento box with steamed rice topped with purple potato butterflies, chicken sukiyaki, soy-sauce egg, pan-fried mini wieners, tamagoyaki, ebi fry, pan-fried dumplings, carrot salad and cherry tomatoes.

I made my husband a bento meal with the same menu as well, but I will show the picture(s) of his bento box another time :). Well, that's it for now. Have a nice weekend, everyone!
