Hello again Kitchen Princess Bamboo. I make comment in all the videos, so sorry to bother you again haha. I wish to try these bento boxes for myself first, and if its a success, make for my family. I work a 9-5 job, and ready-made homemade meals are my favorite. I have 1 question: when you make these ahead of time, do you store in the fridge overnight till next day? If so, how to reheat? Is microwave is too strong for delicate bento box to reheat? Please advise me, I want to try this soon! Thanks and love from Florida!


Yummy!!! Can you please teach me how to cook those very soft Japanese tofu Hamburg? They are super delicious!! Thank u!

createitinc says:

I really love watching your videos because some of these food items I've never known how to cook or let alone what to search for to find recipes. And when I do find things they make it look so hard but you make it look like anyone could do it! I honestly can't wait to try some of these (though I might not be willing to eat just a couple at a time haha). Thank you for the lovely videos!

TokiYuYu says:

I love your recipes and hope you make more bento related videos! I also wonder if you could make a gyukatsu recipe? Looking forward to more videos!

Peter Engström says:

I often try to make a nice bento and bring with me to work in a cute bentobox I got in Japan last year. It's nice and also fun to watch my work mates as they stare at my nice looking bento.
I've got more inspiration since I found your site here. Thank you for all the easy tips and recepies. 😀 By the way, I loved Nara! To bad I didn't know about your shop last year. 😀

Quinn Gaston-McDonald says:

My daughters love tsukune meatballs. Never thought to pack that in a bento, but they seem logical to use for an easy protein. Also, never thought to add dashi to the pumpkin. Do you use the left over liquids for anything?
Thank you for the weekly planning ideas. Truly enjoying this series.

Riley O says:

Thank you for posting this! There are a lot of great food items to put in bento boxes for me to try now. I'll be looking forward to your next video!

Clara R says:

Amazing ! I'm a vegeterian but I'll try replacing the meat with tofu or other substitutes. Will there be a video focused on the vegetables in a bento ? Have a nice day !

OnePurplePrincess says:

These Bento boxes and recipes are also great for making bentos for disabled people to have a grab and eat meal that has a good variety for taste, interest, and health.
I'm disabled. I can cook some days but many days I am not able. So by making a lot of these recipes and putting them in the freezer means I can pull parts out to make a couple of easy bentos on my better days to have in the fridge for the next couple of days lunches when I'm alone and can't cook or make food. Thank you for your help. 💟😍😋
