Since I have a limited budget, I decided to make lots of bento(lunchboxes) and do lots of homecooking! Of course, since there are a lot of dishes with meat in Japan, I avoid going out to eat ( in Japanese summorized in one word: gaishoku 外食).
Here’re some dishes I have made untill now!
Toast (shokupan 食パン) bought at the tiny ‘panyasan’ or bakery here. Left is with a kind of mayo-corn mix bought at the supermarket. Put it on the toast before putting it in the ‘oventoaster’. It tasted quite nice!
Poteto salad bento + maccha drink yoghurt (last one was bought at the convenience store (コンビニ – konbini). The potato salad ( in Japanese it becomes poteto) looks so different to what I’m used to but it’s supposed to look like this. Made with potatos, milk , carrot and cucumber ( which is really tiny in Japan)
These two experiments are made with kind of bread roll and sweet potato salad (1) and pumpkin salad (2) bought at the SEIYU supermarket. Taste didn’t match well because the bread was sweeter as expected. Oh well…
Okonomiyaki with katsuo flakes on top and no mayo
Omuraisu! Or omulet rice. Basically, a mix of rice, ketchup and vegetables with an omulet on top.
Tofu-burger made with a friend! And miso soup (left). We bought tofu (was really cheap!) and mixed it with panko crumbles and fried it! Tasted better as it looks !
Normal curry rice with normal ingredients: potato, carrot, onion(left out the meat)
