Yakisoba bento at Mitsuwa Marketplace - Costa Mesa
So I decided to get some yakisoba from Mitsuwa today. It's about the cheapest thing at the Mitsuwa bento box section at the back of the store. $2.25 plus tax for a pretty filling lunch (at least for me)
Here it is. The yakisoba was good, although the onions in it were a bit strong as they were still almost raw.
These are called takoyaki. Essentially small octopus tentacles wrapped in a pancake-like batter which is then deep fried and dusted with bonito flakes and squirted with soy. It's probably my favorite thing in this bento. Here I've dissected it. You can see a little bit of the octopus.
