Emily Williams says:

Guys if you don’t make anything else from this video make those bell peppers! They really are so good you can’t stop eating them 😋

Matthew Brodkin says:

congrats on the collab

whimsicalVanilla says:

Is it okay to use Tempura-Fried kabocha or sweet potatoes for the Tenmusu instead?

Linn Cedervall says:

I LOVE your channel, I can't stop watching your videos. Thank you for being inspiring! 全部美味しそうです!I'm currently living in Japan and I was wondering if you have any good tips on good dashi powder that's not containing MSG. I was also wondering if you have any favorite chicken soup paste that you use. I would be so, so thankful for an answer!

Kaye L says:

I love this collab! Thank you for your hard work and sharing these recipes!

Ina Radutu says:

how do you make fried egg, omelet and boiled egg from a single egg?

jasminderpinder says:

Love your recipes! simple, quick and easy to make…and looks really delicious. Thank you!

Jasper Fen says:

This was great! Suddenly I want to get some nicer bento boxes for myself.
Were these bento sized for children? I have trouble estimating needed food quantity.
I will check out your fellow youtuber's channels. Thanks!

Nicole Henderson says:

I'm so excited to try these they all look super simple and delicious

Peter Engström says:

Always fun to watch you make interesting foodstuff. I always try to have home cooked lunch with me to work and when I make a real bento and use my Edo-style bento box (fake wood) from Japan my colleagues just stare at it and wonder what that is. 😀 Thanks for some new ideas I will try out for my lunches.
