Temari Bento is a dish made by Alice Nakiri against Sōma Yukihira during the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election's Main Tournament: Quarterfinal.


A colorful arrangement of Temari Sushi, it is meant to be eaten in a specific order. Each successive sushi is more delicious than the last.

  • For the top row is similar to a seafood course of abalone, sea urchin roe, salmon roe then slices of cured bonito.
  • For the middle row it's a salad with vegetable that have been cut paper thin, they have been topped with legumes and the rice was infused with tomato jus extracted with a centrifuge, For example pumpkin with vegetable sprouts, beetroot with edamame, nozawana and zucchini with corn.
  • For the bottom row that represents the main course with the first three are cured beef fillet topped with wasabi but for the last sushi it is a sea bream chazuke (Sea bream on a lotus flower with coagulated dashi & tea topped with kinome leaf).

Thanks to liquid nitrogen, the bento is presented with a certain feeling of mystery before unveiling as well as maintaining the sushi's cold temperature for their final appearance. It is exactly like an edible jewelry box!


The flavors progress in intensity as you go along in a similar manner to a full course meal. The 'sushi cakes' had filtered tomato jus extracted with a centrifuge.
