After developing a massive case of Food Envy after hearing about Eat Like a Girl‘s pork chop for breakfast, I took myself down to Arigato Japanese Supermarket – one of my favourite places to go for a filling takeaway bento lunch.
Normally a Chicken Katsu girl, I opted on this occasion for the Tonkatsu Bento (£4.80) in order to quell my porky cravings. Their bento boxes come with rice and a small serving of pickles and potato salad. They are cold but they will heat them in the microwave for you if you prefer… which I do.
Despite this blast of heat from the microwave with the lid on, the katsu surprisingly retains a satisfactory amount of crispiness which I would assume can be attributed to the wonder of panko breadcrumbs.
