Elena Yamamoto, co-chef of Brooklyn's Karasu, is back in the MUNCHIES Test Kitchen to show us how to make a bento box, the traditional on-the-go Japanese lunch. Elena's requirements for a great bento are simple: it has to travel well, be delicious, and have a variety of great colors.
Her salmon bento is packed with lots of fresh vegetables and Japanese rice balls like onigiri and inarizushi. It's so beautiful that you won't want to eat it. (But then you will, and you'll be very happy about it.)
