Monkey Bento

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

It's very hot over here every day, you can feel the sun burning your skin if you are outdoors. When I'm out sending the boys to School, I just feel like hiding in the car or in the malls, where I can have an air-con blowing at me. :) The boys asked for cold soba, which is just perfect for today's weather.

I made a monkey to decorate the bento. IT is born in the year of the monkey. But he hates bananas. lol. :) I did a tutorial on how to make these sausage monkey, click HERE to see.

LT's bento, in the box are cold soba, sausage, salmon, beancurd chicken and golden kiwis. As they have their lunch at home, I kept the dipping sauce in the fridge.

I saw IT taking out his monkey and put it on his palm before he ate his food, so I took a shot of it. :)

  4. The monkey is really adorable. I love all your bentos. I am just a beginner to make bento. How do you keep your soba cold in the lunch box?

    1. Hi Yenn, I saw your bentos, they are lovely, not like a beginner's wk. :) The soba box was kept at room temperature, I only put the slightly frozen soba sauce in a thermal container. :)

    1. I usually use these two recipes if I'm making my own. http ://justonecookbook.com/blog/how-to/mentsuyu-noodle-soup-base/ http://www.noobcook.com/zaru-soba/ I do sometimes just buy the sauce direct from the supermarket too. :)

  6. Thank you so much! I bought the Kikkoman sauce but my daughter didn't really like it. Or maybe it was the Ume soba instead of Cha Soba.
