I was feeling a little peckish and spotted the super cute Korilakkuma design honey butter biscuit sticks that I bought from the recently opened Japanese grocer, Emporium Shokuhin.
And I thought it will be really cute to depict both Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori in a Halloween Bento.
This year’s design is pumpkin, which is quite funny. But I didn’t really want to dress them up in Pumpkin, so I made a mini pumpkin using carrot slice, and Korilakkuma with a witch costume.
They are cooking a pot of stews with gruesome ‘eyeballs’. hahah. Did you spot that as well?
I didn’t want to spend too long making this bento. So Kiiroitori, I coloured the rice using some yellow deco furikake.
Here are the rest of the ingredients
- Japanese rice
- seaweed + slice cheese (witch hat)
- seaweed + egg sheet (eyes and nose)
- Japanese rice + yellow deco furikake
- carrot + seaweed (beak)
- seaweed (eyes, feet)
The side dishes for today’s Korilakkuma Halloween Bento included pan fried chicken mid joints, sauteed sweet peas with broccoli and lettuce.
Did I also mention that the honey butter biscuit sticks were super yummy too? I finished the box so quickly.
I used my round magewappa (bent wood) bento box from Asakusa Magewappa Store.
