Description

The Japan House Interns are proud to present a Bento Etiquette Lunch!




Enjoy a delicious lunch while learning about Japanese Bento. You'll get insider tips from the Japan House Interns on Japanese food, culture and dining etiquette, all in the beauty of Japan House!

Bento is a single-portion take-out or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice or noodles, fish or meat, with pickled and cooked vegetables, in a box. Containers range from mass-produced disposables to hand-crafted lacquerware. Bento are readily available in many places throughout Japan, including convenience stores, bento shops, railway stations, and department stores. However, Japanese homemakers often spend time and energy on a carefully prepared lunch box for their spouse, child, or themselves.

Our bento lunch will feature soboro don, a classic Japanese dish of seasoned ground chicken served over a bed of rice. The full menu is soon to be released. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
