Non-bento #50: Tearaway (atoi & iota) turkey sandwich

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I haven’t made video game themed food recently because I haven’t played games that made me want to eat them.

But the moment I saw Tearaway, I was in love.

I knew exactly which ingredients I needed to make Tearaway themed food and I couldn’t be more excited to make it out of food and eat it. Also since it uses turkey, I thought this would be the best time to make it.

For iota (the boy), I made the face with turkey, the bandana with zucchini & lettuce, nose with carrot, and eyes with cheese and seaweed.

For atoi (the girl), I used the same ingredients as iota except I also used peeled carrot for her hair, cheese for her nose, radish for the eyelash & mouth, and pickled radish for the cheeks.

Pickled radish is so easy and pretty. You first remove water from the radish by cutting it, sprinkling a bit of salt over it and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then you throw away the removed water, pour rice vinegar (or regular vinegar), sugar, salt and lemon juice. (check out how to make sweet & sour pickled radish for the recipe) After a couple of hours, the skin of the radish will die everything pink.

Just like it looks, Tearaway is delicious.

I love the game so much that I made a Tearaway themed Vita case. Seriously, if you want to see and feel what happiness is and you own a Vita, buy Tearaway!

Hi Anna! I like those sandwiches so much, long time ago i tried to do something like that but i couldn’t… Its too difficult for me and I gave up so fast :(

Could you do a power point to teach me how to do it step by step with all necessary ingredients?

Thank you,

It’s a good idea to entertain your child for lunch.
You can cut and letters to the baby.
For training.

Thanks for the idea!
