Loving my black bento box

I'm really in love with the black bento box my friend got for me last year. I've almost abandoned most of my other boxes in favour for this one! hehehe I don't know, I think it makes the food look so much more fresh and vibrant. Or maybe it just photos better! hehe

Left: Leftover Shanghainese pan fried pork buns
Right: Cold soba noodle salad. I had a really nice citrusy Japanese salad dressing to mix into this

Chicken and mushroom ravioli in a garlic and olive tomato sauce
Right: Fennel and mandarin salad with smoked salmon. Usually I use orange, but I didn't think the orange segments will last after sitting in the salad overnight. The mandarins went really well! They also make great portable dressing dispensers. Before eating, squeeze a piece of mandarin over the whole salad as dressing! hehe

Left: Ham and veggie frittata with sliced smoked chicken drumsticks
Right: More fennel and mandarin salad with smoked salmon

Left: Smoked Chicken salad
Right: Black Pepper stir fried spam with broccoli. Really nice and peppery!

Left: Salad with ricotta cheese served with balsamic vinegar
Right: Veggie frittata with grilled veggies and beef patties

Left: Veggie frittata (Yes I had a lot of frittata! But 1 frittata can last 2-3 meals!)
Right: Tuna garden salad

Lamb Kofte with Bulghur
Bottom: Baby corn, green beans, cherry tomatoes, curry puff, pea sprouts and sweet figs

Left: Chicken patties and sautéed shitake mushrooms
Right: Curry puffs and veggies

hehe I'm someone who can't really eat leftovers! If it looks like leftovers, I don't really want to eat it. So the only way around it is to cook it fresh! hehe Plus.....the food around my work is terrible!

Thanks Betty! I've been very lazy with my bentos lately. Mainly been coming home to play with Butters rather than make lunch! Hoping to get back into it soon!
