Food Porn Friday - Republic, Bento Box #6


Sometimes I just want to post pics. Sometimes I got to places that are perfectly fine little spots where I just want to grab a meal and go. They're not really destination spots. Sometimes I don't feel like writing an entire post. LOL! But seriously. Welcome to the first edition of Food Porn Fridays! Here I'll be sharing pics of some pretty food and less of my banter. :)

This set of pics is from one of my go-to places, Republic, in Union Square. Why do you I like Republic? Well, it's fast, a pretty darn good value and consistent. Sometimes you just need a place like this in your life. It's not super authentic Asian food, but it hits the bases.

This time around I stopped in and tried their new bento boxes, which are available only Monday through Friday from 11am-5pm (and not for delivery). At $12, I thought the servings would be tiny. WRONG! The bento box was more than filling and much bigger servings than I thought!

Without further ado, Republic's Bento Box #6
Counterclockwise: Fried Calamari, Vietnamese Noodle Salad, Wonton Soup


Shrimp, pork & vegetable wontons, glass noodles, cabbage, Chinese greens, fried shallots, garlic & cilantro


Vietnamese Vegetable Noodles: Cold rice vermicelli noodles, mint, broccoli, celery, carrots, tofu, egg, shallots, bean sprouts and peanuts


Fried Calamari - covered in bread crumbs with sweet chili sauce

*The pic quality ain't so hot because this was taken with a Blackberry camera. Just FYI..


Happy Weekend!

Sigh. I need to stop reading your blog when I'm hungry.

Everything looks SO insanely good :)

That is a seriously awesome bento box! I agree with Maya... I'm not reading your blog except RIGHT AFTER I eat!
