For the uninitiated, Bento is a type of lunch-time meal which consists
of rice, meat, and vegetables, the whole array arranged together in a
box. It’s a fairly traditional dish, often prepared for school and work
lunches; it’s also available at most restaurants which serve Japanese
food. Those mass-produced meals rather pale in comparison to the stuff
I’d like to share with you folks today – calling the ordinary stuff
downright inadequate wouldn’t be much of a stretch.
