Hotto Motto will release "Aya Torimeshi to Saba Shioyaki Bento" and "Aya Tofu Hamburger Steak and Vegetable Teriyaki Sauce Bento" from its "Aya Bento" series on August 18, 2012. Each is priced at 490 yen (tax included).
Aya Torimeshi and Saba Salted Grilled Mackerel BentoThe "Torimeshi," a dish familiar to residents of Okayama Prefecture, is served on a bed of rice topped with nori (seaweed) and fried chicken topped with a thick sweet and spicy sauce. It also includes chikuwa tempura, dashimaki tamago (rolled egg), and simmered vegetables. Although small in size, it is a satisfying meal that allows you to fully enjoy meat, fish, and vegetables in a single meal.
Sai, Tofu Hamburger Steak and Vegetables with Teriyaki Sauce BentoThis healthy and satisfying bento features lotus root, green bell pepper, eggplant, dashimaki tamago (rolled egg), and simmered vegetables tossed in a sweet and spicy soy sauce-based teriyaki sauce.

The "Aya Torimeshi and Saba Salted Grilled Mackerel Bento" is sold at 22 stores in Okayama Prefecture, and some of its contents are different.
Not available at Hotto Motto Grill.
Aya Bento SeriesThe theme of the "Aya Bento Series" is "Magowa Yasashi," which is the watchword for healthy Japanese food. The word "Magowa Yasashi" is taken from the first letter of ingredients that should be consumed for a well-balanced diet, including beans, sesame seeds, seaweeds such as wakame, vegetables, fish, mushrooms such as shiitake mushrooms, and potatoes.
The "Sai-Sai Bento" series is a series of bento dishes that contain a variety of side dishes in a well-balanced way with less rice and "Magowa Yasashi" ingredients. This time, the ingredients in each dish have been enhanced to make them more satisfying to eat. The colorful side dishes are a feast for the eyes.
