Bento Boxes from Shiro
Shiro is a name synonymous with Pan-Asian delicacies, this luxury brand operates from UB City, Bangalore and recently launched its home delivery services in the form of Bento boxes (takeaway food in containers like boxes). These ‘Bento’ boxes gives you the change to try some authentic Japanese food right in your home. The boxes are complete in all nature, having the main as well as the side dishes. Being a vegetarian it is quite difficult to try Japanese food, but Shiro’s gives a wide range of dishes even for Vegetarians. I simply love food made with absolutely no oil and minimalistic spices but Japanese food is yet so damn flavorful and delicious.
Ordered the Veg Makimono Bento and the Veg Donburi Bento. The order reached me on time and the food was packed very neatly with no spillage at all. The Veg Makimono Bento comprised of Veg Spicy Californian Rolls, Spicy Tofu and Avocado rolls, Crispy Spicy Avocado and Chef’s Salad. The Sushi was accompanied with wasabi, soy sauce and pickled ginger. It’s intriguing to even imagine having Sushi at home, but that was made possible by Shiro’s. The Sushi was delightful, the art of combining different ingredients together gives a different flavor each time. Do try them! The Chef’s salad was damn good in taste with a very subtle flavor.
Next we tried the Veg Donburi Bento. Shiro’s give you a lot of choice for the rice and the gravy. Our Veg Donburi Bento comprised of Japanese Rice, Seasoned Korean Style Tofu and Vegetables, Chef’s Salad and Chi Chow Style Dumpling. The Seasoned Korean Style Tofu and Vegetables was an amazing preparation and a bit on the sweeter end, going perfectly with the Japanese Rice. The Chi Chow Style Dumpling was crunchy from the use of chopped asparagus, bell peppers, baby corn, carrots, peanut and water chestnut. Excellent dumpling, served with Schezwan sauce!
Both the Bento Boxes were completed in all respects and was more than enough for a person. The prices of these bento boxes is also quite reasonable compared to the same dishes when tried in the restaurant.
So if you’re looking to satisfy your hunger for Pan-Asian dishes at home/office, then do try the Bento Boxes offering from Shiro’s.
