k's bento-ya

I searched my archives and couldn't believe that I'd never posted on K's (if you find it on my blog, please let me know where it is).

K's Bento-ya is a tiny shop in Waipahu serving 2 types of bento (boxed lunch), small or large.

We always get the small which is always way too much food.

It usually comes with 1 makizushi (rolled sushi), 1 oshizushi (pressed sushi), 1 musubi, 1/2 a hot dog, 1 hash patty, 1 tofu egg roll and 3 pieces of their chicken.

Their chicken is deep fried then dipped in a special garlic shoyu-based sauce...so good!

I'm not sure what is in the large because we've never purchased them.

According to mom, the price has been slowly rising on their bento, but are still under US$5 for the small. If you have a big order, you should call a day in advance, otherwise, you'll have to take your chances getting one during the lunch hour, they sell out kinda fast.

Our bento today didn't have the makizushi but instead 2 oshizushi...still ono (delicious)! though I had to refrain from eating all of the crunchy chicken skin...sigh!

You refrained from eating all the chicken skin?! What happened? Gearing up for another "Fat Boy" at Hank's?
Just kidding! ;-)

The bento looks good and pretty good portion for a small size.

Hi Kat! I love bento boxes, they are cute and yummy. I saw this vid in you tube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_hbPLsZvvo and it inspired me to make creative bento boxes.
