as i mentioned yesterday, the boyfriend and i stocked up at a huge h-mart in flushing. this box includes my h-mart goodies: jap chae in the top right section (topped with a yellow carrot and pea pod flower), fish jun in the bottom right section (topped by two purple potato butterflies), and spicy stewed tofu in the bottom left section (topped with a fried quail egg and scallions). in the top left section i have dessert: slices from a baby pear from h-mart’s fab produce section, some blueberries and a kumquat, and some two-toned, sweet korean dessert balls. these balls are a rice-flour and sesame paste concoction labeled “muffin honey rice cake” (this is a form of dduk, which is used in both savory and sweet applications).
you may also notice that i have finally found the cool, slightly-convex four-sectioned box that some of my favorite bentoists are using these days. i got mine at banzai living‘s flushing location. woo hoo!
