When we saw weekend bento boxes on the lunch menu at Primehouse, we could not resist. Needless to say, there was no real Asian food actually in the boxes. However, compartamentalized food appeals to me because I don't like my foods to touch/mix ... unless (1) they're meant to mix ie avocado and onion must mix to make guacamole and (2) I have decided when/how they are to be mixed and I do it myself. Yes, I have food issues - this statement is probably a therapist's wonderland. Don't judge me.
salt/pepper grinder - we were perplexed on how to get salt without the pepper or vice versa ... there is no way to get one without the other
hot chocolate - Belgian dark chocolate
hangover box - mini burkers (spicy mayo, french fries), mac n' cheese (chopped bacon), Monte Cristo (proscuitto, gruyere, tomato tapanade)
little bull box - 207L beef tips (arugula, blue cheese, tomato vinaigrette), grilled steak (mushrooms, onions, whipped potato), shortrib dumplings (bbq sauce), tempura green beans
eggs box - benedict (spicy ham, hollandaise), lobster scrambled (crème fraiche, caviar), peppers & eggs (chicken apple sausage, brioche), chive biscuit
mini ice cream cones - chocolate, vanilla, rum raisin chocolate chip, strawberry, kahlua, mint
Thanks to Vanessa for the pictures - she has a much better camera and a more artistic eye than I do!
