17 Grown-up Bento

Thursday, August 5, 2010

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, E and I went to Super H to shop ['til we dropped], and eat lunch.  I just could not resist the little food court restaurant called T1 Bento & Grill.  I ordered the peppers and steak bento, and waited to be surprised by the sides.  I ordered E steamed shrimp dumplings.  My bento came out on a dosirak tray, which I thought was very cool and it was really good!  It came with steamed sticky rice, fried dumpling and spring roll, lightly wilted baby bok choy in a sweet sesame-ponzu sauce, and fresh clementines.  I absolutely LOVE the idea of the baby bok choy, and I'm definitely going to feature that in upcoming bentos.


Sticky dumplings with sauce.


E enjoying her dumplings (which she thought were awesome despite being slightly indignant that she had to eat them with a fork rather than chopsticks.)


Here is the wondrous wall of housewares where I spend the majority of my browsing time.  It's a little strange because you have to search for the kitchen items in between toilet plungers and toothbrush holders.


I was thisclose to buying this cutting board!


And last, but certainly not least.


I wonder if Alicia Silverstone realizes she's the face of Jennifer Minimizing Briefers?

Bonjour! I was wondering if you'd ever tried momos, a Tibetan dumpling. They are so delish! I think you would love them, as you seem to enjoy dumplings of all sorts. Loving the blog!

We love dumplings here too, and they do taste different when you don't use chopsticks :)

I would be spending an awful lot of time in that store!

I wish there was a place like that here. There probably is. I just haven't found it...yet!

Emily, you will not be disappointed in the momos! I bet you can find them in a Napalese restaurant; I have to wait for the annual International Dinner at Salem College to get them, and I've had to miss the last two years! Sadness!

Slushy, you will not believe this, but we went to a Tibetan restaurant tonight for dinner, and the waitress suggested the off-menu momos - I about jumped out of my seat! We ordered two and they were amazing! I'm a total fan. Thanks for the rec!
