I love Maki’s bentoing style, and many of my bentos (haven’t been posted yet, still in my folder :D) are influenced by her style :D. For today’s post – Walruses Bento, it was inspired by one of Maki’s charabens. I first saw it on Maki’s blog and later I saw it appeared on Megan’s blog inspired from Yum-Yum Bento Box by Maki and another world’s talented bentoist, Pikko :D. Couldn’t help myself to make this Walruses Bento since it’s very cute :D.
The walruses made of rice balls mixed with Kecap Manis (Indonesian sweet soya sauce) to create brownish color, tusks from cheese, brown snouts from buna shimeji caps, and black sesame seeds for the whisker holes. Fresh friends: grapes and Balinese grapes. Yummy friends: Boiled imitated crab stick and beef sausage, tamagoyaki, mixed curry (boneless chicken, potato, wood ear fungus, and buna shimeji), and a single pretty carrot flower.
