I always say I don’t do requests on bento and food, but when I get curious about something I have to try it! Non-bento #43: Omusoba-pan Created and eaten: 6/4/2011 One blog reader, reece, commented on “Non-bento #41: Twisp and Catsby cheeseburgers” about how she likes Omusoba-pan from the anime show, “the World Only God Knows.” “Omu” is a short for “omelette” in Japan and […]

After I made non-bento #40: Twisp and Catsby pizza, I wanted to try more cheese cutting. When is the best time to re-try something you weren’t 100% satisfied with the first time? IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT. Otherwise I’ll probably forget or lose my momentum. So I decided to continue on celebrating Memorial day weekend with another typical American food, cheeseburgers.
