Couldn't wait to get started on this. Very tasty

I decided to get a bento lunch today from the corner store, rather than mingling with the crowds around the station. This is a delivery bento place but since I live so close by I dropped down to pick up a quick TeriMayo Chicken (照りマヨチキン).

This is the store on the corner. Always popular locally at lunch and dinner

I normally buy some hot green tea to go with this, but today was so warm I resorted to some Pocari Sweat.

What is your favorite bento? Let me know in the comments what you like to eat when you’re in Japan.

    pocari sweat – great on a hot day!

      pocari, yes. Always good to wash a bento down with

    I love unagi bentos — a bit more expensive but still, a bargain compared to restaurants. I'm all for bentos and that one looks delicious, rice looks so damn tasty!

      Thanks Hao. The rice was really good! As it gets a bit warmer I will probably start eating the unagi bento as well 🙂

      Thanks Jamaipanese. I have a bento with your name on it, waiting for your arrival.

        wOoT! i'll be sure to take up that offer when I arrive in 2011 😀

    The Honke-Kamadoya around the corner from my old apartment in Kyoto had a nice Akebono Bento. Salmon, oishii…

    1. Father Jack says

      Oh geez, and hot green tea in the winter or Mitsuya Cider in summer…

    2. Shibuya246 says

      I could eat a nice Salmon Bento from Akebono right now. 🙂 very tasty.

    Nothing like a good cold Mitsuya cider straight out of a can, not the pet bottle. Thanks
