Bento no. 21: Zaru soba with naruto maki
Today was one of the days where I really, really fancied soba noodles. It might be because it’s not easy to find a good Japanese restaurant here in Leeds that serves up yummy soba (or Japanese food in general) , or it might just be me wanting to use my hamburger bento box, which is perfect for one serving of soba with toppings. It’s still freezing here, so the weather is definately not a factor – however, it had been spotlessly blue skies all the way, leaving me way too optimistic!
Plus, I couldn’t wait to slice into the naruto maki that I purchsed on my way back from work today! I can never tell the difference between naruto maki & kamaboko other than the ‘design’ – texture wise it feels the same to me. Anyone know what the difference is?
Chilled soba noodles with toasted sesame seed, topped with slices of boiled naruto maki, cucumber flowers, a red pepper flower and sprinkled with nanami togarashi. I added a pack of shredded nori and tsuyu dipping sauce on the top section of the hamburger box – not pictured.
I need to get to making cute looking bentos, unfortunately this week is again swamped at work week, leaving me with no time to be inspired .
