Today we went to Delicatessen Shilla, a Japanese (and Korean) shop on Gelderlandplein in Amsterdam. We had really hoped to get a bento box for E but they didn’t have any. Luckily that wasn’t the only thing on our wish-list ;)

We bought lots of goodies and finally, after years of searching here in Holland, we’ve found some frozen fresh edamame (soy beans still in the pod)!!! Cooked edamame with sea salt are a delicious (and healthy) snack or entrée. We’re gonna try them first thing tomorrow!

But we also got some other weird stuff like dried bean curd cubes with funny faces (I have no idea how to prepare these so please share your thoughts) and sachets with contents to put in tea with rice??? Or a soy and black bean drink…

Lots of things to use in my bento so it was certainly worth the trip :)) Next time we should bring a cooling bag and buy more edamame as well as those frozen pumpkin cookies that looked great…
