BENTO BOX

CHICKEN DONBURI / Yamituski Dori Donburi (chicken bento box)

Serving Direction: Please pour sauce in a sauce cup over the chicken and rice if you got your bento box to go. If you got yours for patio dining the sauce is already on your Donburi.

This chicken dish became very popular a couple years ago in Japan.  "Yamituski" means irresistible in Japanese.  You will understand why it is called Yamitsuki when you taste this special sauce. KUKURI made it into our style of Donburi dish with Yamitsuki chicken over the California-grown organic rice. 

We use organic chicken breast.  It is lightly steamed topped with fresh Cilantro sprouts from Eco Friendly Greens and House-made beet Gari/pickeled "ginger" .  The sauce is made with two different kind of house-made Ra-yu/Asian garlic oil and house-made Kaeshi sauce.

AVOCADO TOFU SHISO DONBURI (Vegan bento box)

Serving Direction: Please pour sauce in a sauce cup over the chicken and rice if you got your bento box to go. If you got yours for patio dining the sauce is already on your Donburi.

This is KUKURI's original vegan Donburi/rice bowl dish. We use California-grown oganic rice.  Avocado and Organic tofu are marinated in this special teriyaki like sauce which is made with house-made Kaeshi sauce and Ra-yu/Asian garlic oil.  It is such a simple dish yet all umami is in the sauce with Nori seawed and Sesame seed.  House-made beet Gari/pickeled "ginger" , Green shiso leaf (like a Japanese basile) and Kaiware/Radish sprouts are on the top to give a refreshing flavors.
