chicken and rice bento (0 yen, gift)

I got this from KK who got it at work but didn't want it. I ate it late so the rice was a bit starchy but I could still tell this was a quality bento. The chicken was juicy and all the side bits were flavorful. Quite a yummy little lunch!

korean fried chicken bento (300 yen)

This is a set picture of the area around my youth hostel in Haeundae area. (also the picture next to bento is the inside of the hostel's common area) The chicken was alright, a bit soggy. The side dishes were quite noisy. Rice was gummy. The memories were great though, and so was the price!

spicy Korean bento (220yen!)

Through the power of hostel wifi, we have a bento geek update from Korea. Buying this was a bit of a language problem (my Korean is weak), but it sure was cheap! Wow, and the view is brilliant! Beach life! The super cheap bento itself was an assortment of "mystery meat" tasting chunks with other soggy things simply soaked in blinding hot red pepper sauce. Burning hot bento. An interesting change from Japanese style, and the view/weather was sublime.

sagami whitebait assortment ekiben (1000 yen)

A little above my price range right now, but I wanted to celebrate my quick trip to Korea with a good bento in Japan. My camera is being weird so for now I only have this washed out image to provide. (Updated with better picture.) Amazing bento so much variety and good color and quite healthy! Yummy yummy!
