Shumai Bento

I'm a bit of a dumpling nut. These crab and shrimp shumai were ones I picked up frozen from a local Asian market, but were still pretty good. The top of the box has 2 rice balls stuffed with tuna and a hard boiled egg. Spring greens lining both halves of the box.

Visually it is kinda bleh, but since I didn't have any colorful fruit in the house when I made it, I had to make do with what I had on hand.

As for the portability of the lunch:

The camera phone confirms that it looks pretty good after a few hours of being bounced around. One of the rice balls is a little flattened and cracked, but it isn't anything I can't live with.


  1. Mmm, I love shumai - picked up a package myself on Friday on my Asian market trip :)

  2. I wish they weren't so little, though. I just want to keep popping them in my mouth.
