Guest Post: Alfro Bento

Today’s guest posts is written by the lovely Shirley from Littlemissonigiri

This was one bento that I didn’t get to post earlier on my blog. With this special invitation to be the guest blogger for Oh!Bento, I thought it would be nice to share it here.

A fun and simple character bento. Do you know Alfro Ken? Quite an entertaining character with his alfro hairdo I must say.


Aside from this bento photo post, what I wanted to share with you is the fun way to create some cute side dishes for your bento.

Over here, I want to bring your attention to the cute meat patties with carrot cut outs. Here is a simple tutorial:

50g of minced meat (chicken or pork)
0.5 tbsp/6~8g silken tofu
1 tsp brown sugar
5 carrot slices
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp ketchup

1. In a small bowl, add silken tofu, brown sugar, soy sauce and ketchup to the minced meat. Mix well.
2. Using cutters, create cut outs of carrot slices.
3. Lay the carrot slices on a plate, spoon a portion of the minced meat mixture on top. Press it down to make a patty.
4. Heat 1 tsp of sesame oil in a non stick pan and grill the meat patties on both sides until brown and cooked through.
