It’s the time of the year in Seattle when sakura cherry blossoms pop up and people go to visit UW Seattle and other tree locations to view these pretty flowers. In Japan, where this flower is a national flower, it’s a tradition for people to prepare a picnic under the blooming trees and share food and drinks.
I decided to do that with my friends this year and we want the experience to be authentic. I heard about this spring-inspired bento box from Tanuki Izakaya. Honestly this is the fanciest bento I ever had and it was truly a wonderful experience. It impressed me with the attention to detail and precision on presenting such as beautiful dish.
If you are looking for some go-to meal for this kind of parties, this is the best option in town. But even if you are just thinking about a regular date night, this could be a perfect addition to it.
