Salty n Sweet Konnyaku Jelly Bento

Having konnyaku jelly as lunch?  Yes, this has been in my mind for a long time, but I kept holding it back, at last I managed to make it a reality today.

The top tier, salty version: shredded chicken frank, bacon, fried egg, konnyaku jelly, cucumber, boiled chicken, pear and 1 broccoli at center.

The bottom tier, sweet version: Shredded pear, konnyaku jelly, strawberry and 1 grape at center.

Here r the sauces to go with the bento: left - golden syrup (boiled rock sugar with water), right - cold noodle sauce (see link for recipe).

This bento meant to eat chilled, little girl enjoyed it very much, however, she couldn't finish all, as the jelly is quite stuffing, trust me.

P/s  If u plan for a diet bento, u may try this out (leave out the meat), as konnyaku jelly / shirataki noodles have ZERO net carbohydrates, ZERO calories, NO gluten and are useful for those on low-carbohydrate diets, click here for more details.
