The recent thread on Bento supplies got me thinking about eating Bento Boxes in Japan. Bento meals here generalyl consist of rice, salad, tempura, maybe some teriyaki and/or suchi and/or handrolls. When I was working in Japan, we used to order Bentos that would come with 8-10 little dishes, maybe some odd little dumplings, various kinds of pickles, rice (invariably with an umeboshi on top and a sprinkling of black sesame), etc. but rarely with a main focus such as tempura etc. So my question is, are there any places here that are serving bentos beyond the usual?
Alternatively, whose got the best Bentos?
