Bento! #206: Chikin Namban

Or chikin nanban / チキン南蛮 / fried breaded chicken fillet with tartar sauce and one other sweet oroshi sauce, comes with shredded cabbage / キャベツ / kyabetsu which I poured 1000 island dressing over. Namban actually means "southern barbarians," and was originally used to refer to countries south of Japan; i.e. the Philippines, Indonesia, etc. Note that the n / ん in Japanese, when succeeded by another syllable, is typically pronounced as m, like tempura should actually be tenpura. This one is 294 yen from the cafeteria. I ate it with my usual "S" barley rice, and salad bar salad.
