Restaurants & Bars 5

"Good" Bento Box

carlywood | Feb 2, 2007 12:03 PM

I love Japanese food, but I'm not a huge fan of sushi.

I've noticed that most restaurants that serve Japanese food seem to gear their appeal towards sushi lovers.

But I'm looking for a restaurant that serves homestyle cooking.

What I mean is that the teriyaki tastes like it was made from scatch, and not the goopy stuff from the bottle. I like my tempura light, aka not coated heavily in either batter or fried with too much oil.

I also noticed most restaurants have their bento boxes for lunch and not dinner.

I'd like my bento to include rice, soup, maybe salad, a small roll of sushi and shumai or gyoza.

Price is not really an issue, but anything ringing in at less than $20 sounds good to me.

If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them!
