i'm looking to give a bento box set as a gift. i was thinking that mitsuwa marketplace might carry them, but i'm not sure. any other ideas in the south bay?
moderators: forgive me if this should be in "not about food," i just wasn't sure where this would belong.
this isn't really food but next door to the mitsuwa market at Alameda and 3rd is Utsuwa-no yakata. they have bento boxes and all kinds of porcelain and earthenware and lacquerware for the home.
Also, check out a discount store on the ground floor inside the mall. they may have a very nice bento set.
I don't know if Ryomundo in gardena carries them - if they do, they will be beautifully hand-lacquered and quite expensive.
Shaab in Old Town Pasadena has beautiful and delicious bento boxes that you can get to go - but you do have to return the boxes since they come in the laquered wooden boxes.
Rafu Bussan, 326 E 2nd St in Little Tokyo. Lots of bento boxes, ranging from plastic - bring leftovers to work - to high end.
