Go Traditional ! Practical, Filling & Delicious Bento Lunches

I haven't made any traditional bento boxes for some time, even though I do enjoy making them as much as making character bento - this is also the reason why my newly published bento book focuses on both subjects "Charaben" and "Tradtional Bento" :)

Do you remember these bento meals I whipped up in the past? Want to know the recipes? Check out the links below :)!

1. Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Pork Bento
2. Ebi Fry Bento
3. Chicken Katsu Bento
Farfalle Onigiri Bento
5. Pink Sakura Bento
6.  Szechuan Wontons & Udon Noodle Soup Bento

Browse the TRADITIONAL BENTO section of this blog for more ideas and inspirations. Have a lovely weekend, everyone :)!

  4. As much as I adore your amazing character bentos, I also love these more traditional bentos - I think my favorite one from the above selection has to be Korean Stir.Fried one, although, I love them all - I really should get started making some bentos, my kids go crazy every time I come here for a visit while they glance over my shoulder when I write a comment! They totally adore your bentos!
    Hope that the sale from your book is going tremendously well!
    Ganz liebe Grüsse von uns allen und noch einen schönen Sonntag,
    Andrea

    1. Thanks for your comment, Andrea. I can understand why you prefer the traditional bento, charaben is not always everyone's cup of tea :). I actually prefer traditional bentos too, since it's quicker to make and they're usually tastier too ;). However, I consider charaben an artform, it's just a hobby like painting, knitting, drawing etc - but when you do charaben, you get to eat your artwork too, it's like killing two birds with one stone :).

      I'd love to see your bento creation :)!! A bento doesn't have to be elaborate, since bento simply means a meal in a box, and is equivalent to a packed lunch. I think as long as everything is arranged neatly, you would make a great-looking bento :)!.

      Vielen Dank für dein Kompliment, das ist ganz nett von dir. Ich wünsche dir und deiner Famile auch einen schönen Sonntag und herrliches Wetter :)!

    2. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer me - my kids totally adore your character bento, and you are absolutely right, it is indeed an art form! But I am by no means as skilled as you are, so I will take your advice and start with a more traditional bento first and see where that takes me...
      Lieben Dank für deine tolle Antwort und noch mehr Grüsse,
      Andrea

    3. It's a matter of practice :). You're already a great cook to start with, so you will absolutely have no problem making a delicious and neatly arranged bento box! It doesn't have to be Japanese either. Make something German as I do love German foods :) :)!! Lecker, lecker, besonders Ente mit Knödel und Rotkohl ;)!

    1. Well, I am sure you would have no problem making traditional bento lunches, since it's much easier than making charaben :).

    1. Thanks, Yenny :). I can imagine that little kids would prefer charaben over more practical lunches. The kid in me also makes sure that I make charaben regularly instead of just traditional ones ;)!
