Recently, I made two Hawaiian themed bentos to contribute to a Japanese book printed in Japan. The book is about Hawai`i and its culture, and is written by Sachiko Uchida Ka’aihue of J-wave, who is also the host of OC 16′s DokoGa TV. The first bento is a surfer boy against a wave made of rice with the Hawaiian sun shining down upon him. The bento also contains Kalua pork, a few fruits and veggies, and a side of lomi lomi salmon.
The second bento is a hula girl onigiri adorned with a haku lei. The bento also contains Portuguese sausage and Spam, both of which are Hawaiian staples! Hope you like them.
