“Good Lord!”, you must be thinking. That’s what I said when the weigh-in results came in on this Godzilla-sized breakfast bento.
First of all, if you think I’m the insane one for choosing this, no, I’m not. It was Diner A. And while he’s a skinny guy that generally eats a nutritious, well-balanced meal, this was one time he must’ve thought, “What the heck, just $5 bucks for all that?. Go for it.” lol
Upon looking over those thick cuts of luncheon meat (it’s the Armour-Star brand we think), Diner A couldn’t resist taking it to the scale for a weigh-in. Just feeling it, you could tell this baby had some heft, or as we say, “poundage”. With that, Diner A suggested I include a new “Poundage Factor” on this blog, providing the weight of various plate lunches and other food items that are showcased here. Wha’cha’ think?
While it could be made to sound “light” and say this weighed 22 ounces, by “Poundage Factor” it would read 1.5 POUNDS. Even if its just 4 oz., by “Poundage Factor”, that would read as a QUARTER-POUND. Hey, the burger guys do it. lol
Actually, he had this massive breakfast bento for lunch. As you see it goes a step further than the standard, and includes fried rice (instead of white), one mandoo and a slice of Daikon. Not bad for $5.
Easy to understand when it’s from the “Friendly Neighborhood Bento Man“…
Funny enough, as much he thought that massive bento tasted pretty darned good, he gave it “just” a 2 SPAM Musubi rating, noting that there was TOO MUCH luncheon meat, throwing off the meat-to-eggs-rice ratio. lol
Now I need to run a few laps after just looking at that. lol
Diner E went with Zippy’s special-of-the-day, the Meatloaf with Brown Gravy…
Zippy’s special – Meatloaf and Brown Gravy (mini), $5.00
I missed getting a good shot of the meatloaf cross-cut. Anyhow, Diner E noted how fantastic Zippy’s brown gravy is. I must admit, it is one of the best in plate lunch-ville. It’s the deal-maker on their otherwise overpriced $8.50 Loco Moco. This plate received a 3 SPAM Musubi rating.
Well that was entertaining.
