Lunch Box 140: Pork and beans


Back to the


Are you sure that's edible? Once again I've based a lunch on my "How weird - gimme some!" philosophy. The main course is a fairly ordinary pork bun from 99 Ranch Market. Tasty, although they sweeten the pork a little more than I'd do myself. With that are edamame, which are always good for filling odd little spaces in a bento box. And finally, those strange, unappetizing-looking brown pods are tamarinds. Yes, I know what they look like. The first time I saw them I was curious, but not enough to buy a box. I Googled around, found out that they're legumes and taste like fruit, and bought some the next time around. And despite their homely appearance, they're tasty!
