A Decade of Delight: Morikawa Bento's Journey from Hong Kong to Chicago

In the bustling streets of Hong Kong, where culinary traditions intertwine with modern innovations, Morikawa Bento embarked on its flavorful journey in 2013. With a mission to deliver authentic Japanese bento experiences, Morikawa quickly became a beloved destination for food enthusiasts. Now, a decade later, this culinary gem has crossed continents, bringing its exquisite menu to the vibrant city of Chicago in 2023. Here are the delectable offerings that have made their way to the Windy City:


A quintessential Japanese comfort food, Tonkatsu at Morikawa Bento is a masterpiece. This crispy fried pork cutlet, expertly breaded and deep-fried to golden perfection, is drizzled with a rich combination of Japanese mayo and a sweet & savory sauce. The contrast of the crispy exterior with the tender, juicy pork inside creates a harmonious balance of textures and flavors that is simply irresistible.


For those who crave a dish with a bold flavor profile, Shogayaki Pork Belly is a must-try. Thinly sliced pork belly and onions are cooked in a robust ginger sauce, creating a tantalizing aroma that fills the air. The dish is finished with a sprinkle of Japanese chili flakes, adding a subtle heat that enhances the savory, slightly sweet notes of the ginger sauce. Each bite of the succulent pork belly is a delightful explosion of flavor.


Morikawa Bento's Teriyaki Chicken with Cold Udon is a refreshing and satisfying option, perfect for a light yet fulfilling meal. The teriyaki grilled chicken, with its smoky char and sweet glaze, pairs beautifully with the chilled udon noodles, which are dressed in a roasted sesame dressing. Accompanied by a crisp salad with a tangy citrus soy dressing, this dish offers a medley of flavors and textures that dance on your palate.


A contemporary twist on fried chicken, Yuzu Chikin is a delightful fusion of crispy and tangy elements. The fried chicken pieces are tossed in a vibrant ponzu sauce, a citrus-based condiment that infuses the dish with a refreshing zest. The result is a dish that is both crispy and juicy, with a burst of citrusy brightness that elevates the traditional fried chicken experience.
