various sushi rolls (390yen?)

I had this at work the otherday and my coworker insisted on decorating my picture with peter rabbit dolls. The rolls were fairly good fussion rolls. My favorite was the tuna salad roll. Had it with a 120yen can of juice drink.

meatloaf balls & softboiled egg bento (450yen)

The chicken meatloaf balls were soft and kind of liken chicken nuggets. The almost raw boiled egg matched the flavors in a good way. The rice was OK but a bit boring.

fried tofu (250yen) & soba noodles (305yen)

The noodles (right) were yummy (even had a pack of smooth water to make the noodles seperate. The fried tofu (left) was OK but not crispy enough. Not such a bad lunch though. (The noodles were on a can of curry but i didnt have that!)

rice & beef strips bento (450yen)

This bento was similar to a lot of other bento like this, although the sauce was quite flavoraful and the noodle under the beef strips were firm. No, actually what was interesting about this bento was how i had to eat it. My coworker bought it for me but forgot to ask for chopsticks. I was hungry and had no other options so i ate it with my hands. It feels almost taboo to have the hot noodles and chunks of rice in my hands, but theres some kind of renewed knowlege of the taste when you use your hands.
