fall season sushi set (690yen)

Very good. Too much wasabi though. I like wasabi but too much kills the fish taste. The salmon was as soft as butterーー yummy! The package on the bottom is the soy sauce.

grilled pork lunchbox (495yen)

This was fairly good but the taste were all smonth, no variety. The pork was in ginsing and carrot sauce but didnt really raise up to the spicy expectation. On the side were two blobs of boneless fried chicken that was too rare for my tastes (quite pink still) and a fried patty of mashed potatoes. The half of a boiled egg was dry and fairly bland.

tuna sushi (358yen) & green salad (220yen)

The sushi was great, really smooth mixed with green onions. A bit too salty though. The salad was refreshing, a lot of veggiesーー too much cabbage though. Had this with jasmine lemon tea (with honey sweatner).

typical mixed salmon bento (398yen)

Not bad for the price, nice variety. Rice was kinda bland and the salmon had too many bones. Not so bad though.

wasabi flavored noodle salad (395yen)

Not so bad, havent had this before. Buckwheat noodles, chicken salad on it with wasabi soysauce (2 packets near middle) dressing. Wasabi wasnt too strong, was a fairly good mix but i'm still hungry. Had this with a can of calpis soda (120yen)

spicy fried chicken bento (400yen)

Atleast i think it was chicken, i was too hungry to pay attention to the label. This was better than most "three F" brand bento, although it was a bit too dry out of the box so i slathered it with my own mayo. not bad!

gyoza rice bento (495yen)

OK, first, I know this picture isnt centered. But the focus is good so I went with it. This was fairly boring. The potstickers (gyoza) werent too flavorful, kind of muddy with no real distinct flavor. The rice tasted like fake brown rice (bleeched white and colored brown after that). Not so bad, but not that exciting.

brown rice mixed bento (498yen)

Awesome selection of flavors, about as close to perfect as a bento can be. (picture of box shows the fruit juice and coffee cans i had with this) The rice was healthy brown rice with chunks of chicken. Had boneless fried chicken and a weaner, cube of cooked scrambled eggs, fried shrimp among other things. yummy!
