Lunch Out Is Always Fun




While it's probably better to refrain from going out to lunch as recreation, it is fun to try different cuisines once in awhile.

Recently, I met a dear friend for lunch at a restaurant called Jae's,  a pan-Asian place that, in my humble opinion, serves really delicious food.

It's in the Western Mass town of Lenox.  

Being conscious of a tight budget, I ordered a Bento box for less than $10.  It's shown in this post.

It included several different tidbits such as delicious chicken on skewers, a succulent, fat scallop, bites of salad and so on. 

Unfortunately, I can't describe each thing because I didn't know what some of them even were!

The Bento box came with a cup of hot and sour soup and I love that spicy concoction.



My friend ordered chicken lettuce wraps, shown below, and gave them an A+ rating.





The whole lunch, to me, was great. 

We skipped dessert but had a nice cup of hot orange flavored tea.

The company was good, too.

DO YOU LIKE ASIAN STYLE FOOD?

Very interesting looking food! You were brave to get out in the cold for lunch. Here cold left, day was like spring but nasty will return with freezing rain tomorrow. No lunch out today but we did go see Silver Linings!

Aww..Japanese food! Yumm! It's not available here, so I miss it a LOT!
great choice for a meal:)

I like the idea of the Bento. Saw a show on the Travel Channel that showed how Japanese moms fixed those types of lunches for their kids or husband when they sent them off for the day. Amazing ! My son would be happy if I could learn to fix a few easy things to spice up their lunch. We eat sushi at least several times a month. Best wishes, Tammy

I love eating new types of food except for those weird ones like chocolate covered ants.

I love you - but that box did not look good to me - sorry. But thumbs up to the asian chicken and lettuce wraps.

I do like Asian food, but not on a regular basis. We have found that it varies widely from place to place around here, so it's an adventure each time we try it! This all looks and sounds delicious!

I don't have Asian-type food very often. In fact, I don't very often have a chance to eat lunch out. We are big on cooking and staying home.:-) I usually order a green salad when I am out for lunch.

I DO!!!! My Frank has allergies so I do not get to eat it often but when I do I practically lick the plate :)
