Nanbanzuke Bento



For today's bento, I made nanbanzuke last night. Nanbanzuke is fried chicken soaked in a sauce of shoyu, sugar and vinegar, with tarutaru sauce made out of mayonnaise, minced onion and some pickle and boiled egg on it. I omitted tarutaru sauce this time so instead, I added drizzle of mayo on the chicken, plus syoyu-soaked boiled egg halves and quick cuke pickle next to it. They turn into tarutaru sauce in your mouth if you eat them all at the same time lol. OK anyway this bento is still yum, I assure. Nanbanzuke is also one of very good bento dishes that I'd really like to share a recipe of. I have so many recipes to share with those who always check out what I made. I think my recipes have to be simple and clear, preferably with some pictures or a video because nothing would hit you in your mind if I just write unconvincingly a process and a long list of ingredients.


  1. I am continually amazed at the fact that all your bentos are so elegant!  I am very jealous :)  And I would love to have you post the Nanbanzuke recipe, please?

  2. Aw you're so sweet! :) I'm actually thinking of making vegge nanbanzuke. Anyway sometime soon! :D
