I need a Kento Bento Replacement

Justin Porter | Apr 19, 2006 02:08 PM

Hi all,

I grew up in Portland Oregon eating at a place called Kento Bento. Recently moved to SF and I can't find anything even somewhat similar to this.

The bentos at Kento Bento consist of Grilled chicken (not skewered) with shredded pickled ginger, marinated cucumbers, corn, marinated Spinach, sesame seeds and bean sprouts, all topped with a sweet chili/hoisin sauce.

It's really different than any bento I've found anywhere before, and I'm craving it. Does anyone know of anything even remotely similar to this in SF.

Thanks.
