Bento Box

Caja bento

Bento is a Japanese meal that is convenient to package and eat. Similar in concept to a television (T.V.) dinner found in the United States. However, with no reliance on a microwave. Bento is often served in a box-shaped container (hence the name bento box). A simple bento box contains rice, a meat, and vegetables. Inexpensive bento in the United States often comes with white rice, sesame seeds and teriyaki flavored chicken.
