On September 5, there will be another unique opportunity for lovers of good Japanese cuisine:
Chef Riichiro Matsui again creates a Bentō for the Japanese Consulate General in Munich, which receives a high visit from Japan.
We take this as an opportunity to also offer a limited number of these special Japanese Bentō for our customers to order in the evening.
This bento is available for delivery or pickup only, the restaurant will be closed on September 5 due to the extensive bento production.
Don't miss this opportunity - a properly Japanese made Bentō, prepared by qualified chefs with love and high quality ingredients, is unfortunately an absolute rarity in Munich!
It's a little voyage of discovery of different, typical Japanese flavors, all handmade little things, all in one box.
Here's a look at earlier Fukiyose-Bentō:
Sōshū Fukiyose Bentō
The description of the dishes starts in the upper left compartment. This is not a general rule for Bentō, where the order of the food is not fixed anyway. However, this time our kitchen team spontaneously fixed it so that the left upper Subject is the first.
Sweet and sour fried chicken with peppers, onions and tomatoes
緑パプリカ 玉葱 トマト

Grilled salmon marinated with yuzu
The autumn salmon, which is now in season, is lightly grilled in soy sauce with the aroma of Yuzu.
Further clockwise, can be found in the right lower Subject of our special Fukiyose Bentō again some fine fried specialties.
When it comes to fried dishes in Japan, in addition to tempura, the breaded and deep-fried "furai" (フライ) is also very popular as a staple in the Bentō. Tempura has been eaten in Japan since the Muromachi period (1333-1573) and is therefore a part of Japanese people's immediate culinary experience. However, deep-fried dishes are considered in Japan to be a "Yōshoku" (洋食) originally imported from the West, which originated after the Meiji period (1868-1912) when breading was introduced to Japan.
Breadcrumbs originally brought to Japan from the West were fine-grained cookies or dry bread, but the Japanese made their own breadcrumbs by crushing a loaf of bread and grinding it through a wire screen. Japanese breadcrumbs are unique because they have a light texture and contain no oil.
Deep fried eel wrapped with shiso leaf and yuba
The greasy Eel is steamed to remove excess fat and wrapped with shiso leaf and yuba. So you can enjoy two textures at the same time: soft and fluffy inside and crispy outside.
Shrimp deep fried with rice crackers
A crispy dish of small cracker grains of mochi rice sprinkled on the surface of the shrimp. The shrimp are also very hearty.
Tempura of Maitake mushrooms and Shishitō peppers
A tempura, which seasonally pulls together the departing summer and the approaching autumn:
Shishito mushrooms, a Japanese allusion to summer, and maitake mushrooms, reminiscent of autumn, are served as tempura.
Finally, the lower left compartment:
Futomaki sushi with cucumber, takuan, deep fried Tōfu, sweet and sour ginger, and egg drop
胡瓜 たくあん 稲荷揚げ 刻み甘酢生姜 玉子

Pickled kohlrabi and cucumbers
Kohlrabi, a local product, are processed into "Tsukemono" (漬物). Tsukemono are simply to call pickles would be fatal, they are an essential ingredient of Japanese cuisine, which we will take a closer look at on occasion. Enjoy your meal!
We were honestly surprised by how many orders we got in a very short time for this Bentō as well.
In the end, such a Bentō box (yes, a Pleonasm From the customer's point of view, it's only like a larger main course. But if that costs about 80 euros, then it takes a lot to make the customer satisfied. Apparently, however, there are customers who understand that for such a Fukiyose-Bentō then not only a lot of different, high-quality material is needed - but above all a lot of working time to produce such a box in this quality and taste variety. We find the topic of Bentō super exciting and hope to be able to offer such specials for you more often in the future in completely different quality levels. And especially we thank the 30 customers who got hold of the Bentō this time for their trust and the great praise we received. Here are a few excerpts:
Customers especially praised the variety of tastes, have expressed pleasure that there was something very special to try.
Naturally, such a box can not reach the quality of a special event at sansaro directly on site. In this respect, one customer said that he would prefer our culinary Special Events would visit.
One customer was surprised by the sweet and sour taste in the first compartment, which he did not know from Japan in this way
We were also very pleased that our attention to detail was noticed and appreciated. Here are a few more quotes:
"Nigiri: all excellent, the variant with scallop superb, a poem!"
"Tempura: top quality! Very fine dough. The shrimp in crispy batter, like the with eel or mushroom"
"a successful delicious surprise: the little things, some crunchy, some crispy, whose true nature was revealed only after eating."
"the small sake sample (3 bottles) not only went very well with the food, it (unfortunately) makes you want more. (...) the insanely good desert with the insanely good matcha syrup. A dream."
