Bento Series: #1

I'm starting a new series on the Japan! Japan! Blog about bento meals I eat while in Japan. Bento, as you know, means "lunch box," and so you shouldn't really say Bento Box because that would be like lunch box box. What a 1-2 punch that would be. Anyway, I'll post this series mostly from my mobile device while on the go (so please excuse typos and what not), and almost instantly, and let's see where we will go with this. These bento meals, I usually buy them at convenience stores (konbini), but they're also available at supermarkets and even some restaurants and stand-alone bento stores. Hope you like this series! 

This first one features rice, of course, but sprinkled with black and regular sesame seeds. Corn and spinach on the side. Some spaghetti and bean sprout bedding for the main course, which is two pieces "ebi furai" - fried non-tempura breaded shrimp - with tartar(?) sauce and (pork?) burger with "demi-glaze?" (i.e. sweet) sauce. 550 yen. Yes, expensive.
