Japanese Lunchboxes in Berkeley, CA?
- Michael Freedman
Dearest Chowhounds: About 8 yrs ago we believe we read about a place in Berkeley specializing in Japanese lunchboxes (maybe takeout only; maybe west Berkeley near the freeway). Having returned from Asia, we now cannot find any reference to it. Does anyone know of such a place? Best regards, mike, na & lan.

Yeah, O-chame is on Fourth, north of Hearst, west side of the street. It's easy to miss; so park in the lot behind the Fourth Street shops, and stroll the block. Haven't eaten there myself since they were up on Gilman, where Jimmy Bean's is now. I recall it as an elevating but not nourishing experience.
