Takoyaki Bento by Demi-Plum Takoyaki Bento by Demi-Plum
This was my lunch today! I wanted to try something that was not my normal style bento. So I tried out a few new things. It contains:

Top Layer:
Takoyaki! It is topped with home made Tonkatsu Sauce, Chives, and Mayo (Takoyaki is Fried Octopus Balls. It is made out of boiled Octopus tentacle and other ingredients. *Tip for frozen Takoyaki: Put them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes after warming up, it helps to give a crispy crunch to the outside while keeping the inside warm and gooey)

Bottom Layer:
Blanched Spinach with Shoyu (Soy Sauce), Sesame Oil and Seeds.
Hard Boiled Quail Eggs
Green Apple Bunny
Japanese Style Potato Salad (I hate American Potato salad so I was skeptical about this version, but it is DELICIOUS!)

If you've never had octopus it's going to be hard to understand. It also depends on what you put into them. There's the batter and usually pickled ginger, seaweed, and things like that. Then of course the octopus which is quite chewy. You top it off with tonkatsu sauce, mayonnaise, and bonito flakes.
