I thought I’d seen it all when it comes to Japanese curry rice molds, but these two cuties redefine ADORABLE. The only problem is that it comes in both cat and panda, and it’s too hard to decide (would it be greedy to get both? SHUT UP)
Not only does the pack include an easy-release mold for shaping the rice (conveniently sized to perfectly measure out the recommended serving of 160 g), it’s got cutters to punch out the features from a sheet of nori, so you don’t have to get out your tweezers and nail scissors at 5:00 am to make lunch.
And hey, if you’d like a killer curry rice recipe to go with your new kitteh rice mold, there are step-by-step directions for Niku-jaga Curry (my favorite!) in the March Japanagram, just sayin’
Japanagram is my new monthly newsletter, and it’s got all-new features you won’t see unless you subscribe: a fabulous Beyond Tokyo destination, A Japanese Home Cooking recipe, a book review & giveaway, and more. And, of course, it’s free!
(Just so you know, I hate spam too, so I’ll never share or sell your info.)
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
