Awajiya Releases ‘Takoyaki Bento’ with Taiwan Rail Logo in Japan and Taiwan

Taiwan Rail Awajiya Takoyaki Bento

Awajiya has signed a friendship agreement with Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) and to commemorate this, will start selling a special version of the ‘Takoyaki Bento’ (known as ‘Haimi Bento’ in Taiwan) from December 8th.

The container is common for both Japan and Taiwan, using dark blue ceramic with the TRA logo, and decorated with a paper wrap featuring an octopus illustration and TRA’s bear mascot. Inside the Taiwanese version, there’s a savory stew of baby octopus, scallops, and ginkgo in a takotsubo (octopus pot) style. For the Japanese version, it modifies the regular Takoyaki Bento by adding Taiwanese-style braised pork and replaces the white rice with broccoli seasoned with sesame oil, offering a touch of Taiwanese flavor.
