Fried Chicken Bento and Ginger Pork Bento and Totoro

This bento contains two fried chicken drumsticks, macaroni salad, plain omelet and two onigiri. I rarely use drumsticks for bento because they are a bit hard to eat. I think bentos should be easy to eat. However I didn't have any decent stuff other than them in the fridge haha.

I seasoned the drumsticks with herb salt, then dredged in potato starch, then deep-fried (not as usual) them.

For these bentos, I lightly dredged pork slices with starch, then sauteed, then tossed them with a little of syoyu/mirin/grated ginger/water in a frying pan. Also I mixed shirasu (teeny tiny fishes) and umeboshi, then put it on rice as with the ginger pork.


What does this look like? As soon as I found this baby, I said *KUMA CHAN!!* I thought it just looked like a bear's head. But Yuppi said *TOTORO!!*

Yeah I know, it is Totoro as you say! Red Little Totoro!?!?


  1. Oh, I love your picture of the round bento. And I was wondering what cute paper with stawberries you used in the first picture. It looks so cute, but what is  it or where did you get it?

  2. Thank you so much for sweet comment jindanasan! I'm sorry I'm not sure where in your country you can buy the waxed paper, I bought mine from the supermarket nearby. You check out
