I came here on the recommendation of Rose and Tain to share in the wonders of the highly recommended (and namesake) Bento Box.
The restaurant itself is large and spacious and the girls and I were ushered to one of the many giant share size tables.
The menu itself could take some time to read but as we were here for Bento I didn’t take in it’s many wonders as I am one of those girls who likes choice but a limited number at a restaurant is fine by moi (being a vegetarian it’s rare for me to see a menu with more than five potential options – I fact I have become sadly comfortable with as it’s always easy to decide).
We ordered our cocktails and bento and chatted happily as we took in the room and the other Patrons. Our cocktails arrived and were sweet, easy to drink (mine tasted a little like cherry soda) and not too stingy an alcohol. Bargain! Rose and Tain were so excited about their Bento that I had high hopes for my Vegetarian Bento box. Miso soup arrived first and it was delicious – it’s not something everybody gets right and I would happily grab a bowl of this to go as it was so yummy. Our giant bentos arrived next and there is no way you could finish a whole meal. They were very generous.
The girls almost made little happy noises as the gulped down their chicken and I was pleased with the fresh crunchy veggies in mine. In fact there may have been happy noises all round…
