Wednesday Lunch Kyaraben / Bento: Domo-kun Yaki-Onigiri Bento

domo

Domo or Dōmo-kun is NHK TV station’s mascot. He is a fuzzy brown monster-like creature with a permanent bewildered face, open mouth, and jagged teeth – the perfect combination of cute and scary. Domo is made from a soy-glazed yaki-onigiri (grilled rice ball), with nori for eyes, red bit of seafood stick for mouth, and teeth cut out from fried egg white. The backdrop is a salad of baby potato and mukimame (shelled edamame) on a bed of lettuce leaves. The sides are nori tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette), steamed broccoli florets, cucumber half-moons, and cherry tomatoes. All vegetarian apart from the tiny bit of seafood stick (which can be substituted with red pepper).

RAWR!!!
