Bento Love.

Jem Written by Jem

Bento Boxes! I have loved making these fun japanese lunches for over a decade now! Usually whenever I am trying to eat healthier or more economically.

What is a Bento Box? Well I would explain it as a full meal made into a box or many small containers. Here is the wiki definition : Bento (弁当 bentō?)[1] is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine.


The most common place (in america) you may have seen one is at a sushi or japanese restaurant. They usually offer a bento box that is one big plate / container separated into many compartments and each holding a different food item. Usually a sushi roll, some dumplings, rice, salad, and the main course. (I highly recommend ordering one next time you go out, they are so filling and usually a great deal)!
