I came across an interesting new blog that I think Lunch in a Box readers will be interested in. Just Bento is from the creator of Japanese food blog Just Hungry, and focuses on speedy diet bentos for adults, mostly vegetarian, with recipes and tips. I especially like her graphic timelines that illustrate the recipes. I’ve seen these in Japanese-language bento cookbooks before, and they bring an easy-to-grasp glanceability to the lunch prep and packing process. Although Just Bento is new, it looks promising and I’m all in favor of her premise of speedy, streamlined bento prep of delicious food. Dig in!
Just Hungry also points out that Daiso, the big Japanese dollar store chain, will be opening a new branch in London on November 17th with Japan Centre, at 213 Piccadilly. Full details here at Just Hungry.
