Dinner Tonight! | Good to Go

Lots of Food, Lots of Variety

January 23, 2002|Barbara Hansen

If you're really hungry, get one of the Marukai market bento boxes. The makunouchi bento saba box contains a little more than a pound of food, divided into an astonishing variety of tastes. Saba is mackerel. In addition to that, you get shrimp tempura, sweet-flavored fried chicken, a hot dog cut to resemble a flower, a potato croquette, assorted vegetables, a slice of the sweet omelet called tamago, sliced fish cake, shredded seaweed, candied green peas and rice sprinkled with black sesame seeds. A mug of green tea would be the perfect accompaniment.
