Bento (弁当) is a prepared meal for take out or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. Bento usually consists of steamed rice and several side dishes of meat, fish and vegetables. The occasions we eat bento are...at office, during meetings, on the train, on a picnic, etc., when we can't eat in a formal manner.
And I finally tried the Kiyoken's bento! The result was....frankly speaking...good on average? No distinction even for their specialty, dumplings, though rice was very delicious as bento. Maybe their strength is "being on average" that everyone likes. One bento costs JPY750 (approx. USD 9), which is also on or a bit above average. So, my rating is 2.5 out o 5.
