Hmm... I bought this a while ago while in San Francisco (for $1.50, natch!), but never wound up using it because the size is odd for the triangle onigiri I make, and I never could get over to the right places for the store-bought onigiri that fit perfectly within to pick up for lunch the next day. All that has changed! I've found a Japanese market near my apartment that sells onigir, rejoice! and other assorted Japanese goodies. I'll go into more detail another time over at Feisty Foodie, though, where I post my regular product, restaurant, recipe, whatever reviews.
I saw over at Lunch in a Box a while back that she'd used this box but had secured it with a bento belt, but mine wouldn't slide on the way hers did - it would only go over the narrowest point or it felt like it'd snap! This is the biggest belt I have, so I used this one. (Plus - and this makes me uber dorky - since it doesn't have a matching bento per se, if it snapped, I'd feel less awful about it.)
The other side! How cute!
Ta-da! The big reveal. Two store-bought onigiri (one salmon, one tuna with mayo), complete with packaging designed to ensure crispy seaweed when you finally eat it. Yummy. I don't usually have crispy seaweed with my onigiri, even though I do have similar wrappers (courtesy of my friend in LA, Lilly! complete with Hello Kitty designs and stickers!), I'm just that lazy and I don't mind the non-crispy seaweed, I really don't. As long as it doesn't stick to my teeth and make me look funny.
But the bottom opens to reveal:
More goodies! Mostly veggies, some fishies as well, nearly all banchans and some Mommy-made Napa cabbage. Yum goodness. (left to right: pickled cucumbers, fishies, green beans, and Napa cabbage)
