Bento (Japanese lunch box) is very popular in Japan, in old days they served in a wooden box, today you can find Bento in plastic box sold in almost every supermarket, convenience store, station shop, airport shop and even aboard the Shinkansen (bullet train). They also called as Ekiben Bento means Station Bento since you can find this Bento in every station in Japan. This very affordable meal suits people on the go who has no time to prepare the meal at home.

Today they even create unique Bento box with all the accessories and topping which made them really cute! My Japanese friend forwarded me the above Cute Bento pictures.

Talking about Bento in Sydney, I have my favorite Bento box! Off Town Hall station, in the basement food court in Pitt Street side there is Momiji Japanese take-away selling home made style and delicious Bento box. They open Monday – Friday, 12 pm – 5 pm, and the good thing is they have happy hour between 3 pm – 5 pm when all Bento is reduced to $5 only! What a great yummy treat!
