2, In-house lunch meeting

In order to achieve an open-minded well organized work team, communication between staff is essential.

As the existence of a word “Nominication” (a word blend of drinking and communication) shows, social gatherings were often held at night. These days, however, the trend is shifting towards private life centered prompting companies to hold gatherings during office hours such as lunch time. Moreover, Japanese style “Nomikai” (drinking gathering) may not be well accepted in Singapore, giving more reason for companies to have team building gatherings at lunch time.

Bento that pleases ladies

4, Halal, vegetarian corresponded Bento

Singapore’s unique challenge is that because people from different countries and religions gather in this small country, there are also various food restrictions.
You might wonder if it’s possible to arrange a delicious Japanese bento while following different food restrictions.
Also, there may be concerns that ordering from different suppliers (Halal and other) would create complicated administrative work like exchanging many e-mails and keeping track of each invoice.

Authentic Japanese cuisine without using meat and fish

As you know, vegetarians avoid eating meat and fish. Meat includes every kind of meat. Weather its beef, pork, chicken, mutton venison or whale meat, regardless of type of animal, all kinds of meat have to be avoided. Same goes for fish. Not just typical fish such as salmon and tuna, but also crustaceans like shrimp and crab, shellfish, plus ikura and cod roe are included as well.

Moreover, regardless of cooking method, if the ingredients contain any kind of meat or fish, they cannot be eaten.

So for instance if the ingredients include katsuo dashi (soup made from bonito) or chicken broth, the food cannot be consumed by vegetarians.

You might be skeptical weather it’s possible to realize delicious vegetarian Japanese cuisine without using dashi, en essential ingredient for preparing Japanese cuisine.

Samurice creates vegetarian Japanese Bento while keeping authentic taste. This is realized by various creativity such as making dashi from tofu and mushrooms.

Halal Bento, a Bento that is difficult to find in Japanese cuisine

Japanese food culture have been and still is a culture where very little taboo exists. It was not until recently that the word Halal became familiar among Japanese people.
In Singapore, Halal food itself is widespread. But, when it comes to Japanese food category, there is almost none.
Samurice is one of the few Bento suppliers that offer different kinds of Japanese Halal corresponded Bento.

We would greatly appreciate if you would consider Samurice’s for your next conference Bento.
