Hup Holland broodje bento.

Oranje bento

World cup time!  It's better to make this bento while Dutch team is staying in Brazil.

Dutch people loves orange color so much. It is easy to find something in orange.
About this bento, soccer ball is made from sushi, and others are something in orange like Orange Paprika, Orange tomato, Carrot Wuppie and Carrot omelet. Aanval means "attack" in Dutch.
I'm not a football expert so I don't comment something about football. Just make bento and enjoy to watch games. Also it's interesting to watch Dutch supporters as you can see following youtube.
