Bento Box, Yummy!



We had quite a treat a few days ago when we went to a Japanese/Korean restaurant. We made ourselves comfortable on “floor seating” (chairs without legs, a low table, and a secret cut-out area under the table below floor level for your legs). Very ingenious! I don’t think that the Japanese actually eat that way traditionally, but it was great I didn’t have to kneel the whole time. The food was beautifully presented, and delicious. I got a picture of the Bento Box, but the other food was mostly eaten before I remembered about the camera. My daughter’s arm got in the picture; she couldn’t wait to eat! We love to try different foods and ways of eating. This was our first “low table” experience. The restaurant only provided chopsticks for eating, which was fun, but a little challenging when eating the rice. What are some of your favorite cultural eating experiences? I would love to hear about them!
