Leftover Chinese Bento (323)

My in-laws ordered out for Chinese food yesterday from Golden Dragon Seafood Restaurant and though the food was good, I think I still prefer the Aiea Chop Suey stuff. Their gau gee at this place was really good though.

I’ve had some pretty disgusting looking Chinese leftovers bentos, so this one definitely looks like an upgrade from those. The fried rice went in first, then I pushed it over to the side with chopsticks. The red meat came in big chunks, so I sliced that up before laying it in the box on top of the fried rice. The pork with ong choi looked really nasty, so I put it in a food cup and covered it with a bear topper. I could still see the food peeking out around though, so I added parsley to the edges to give the bear a lil green nest.

After that, I added the noodles, then the sushi grass, then the sliced kiwi. To add more color, I sliced a baby carrot and cut out flower shapes with food cutters, topping the fried rice with them. Overall this was a nice and painless bento, taking me less than 10 minutes to pack.

This weekend I’m taking a trip to Hilo to visit Grandma Mu!
