Best Bento Box in L.A.?
Hi guys -
Going to the bowl and looking for Bento box recs - the good ones. My family's from Hawaii so I have high standards. I'm also willing to drive to Torrance or wherever to get them if they're good. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance...
I love the bento box lunches at Mori Sushi on Pico. Terrific bargain. (The supermarket ones at Nijiya on Sawtelle are good for supermarket food).
P.S. Oops sorry - I see you are looking for something to take to the Bowl. Mori won't do for that. I'm not sure where you get a decent takeout bento box other than Nijiya.
You could try Kappo Ishito and see if they'll do it. They have an excellent lunch bento.

Don't know if you're up for fusion - very good fusion - but Mako in BH does one with a pretty nice looking bento box for your bento. According to their website it's pricy for a bento box...
I know Bar Hayama does "bento boxes," but I think it's strictly eat-in...
Have you tried somewhere like Bruddah's to do a big take-out of stuff like lau lau, lomi, SPAM musubi, mac salad, etc.? I don't know what part of the Bowl you're planning to eat your meal, but the areas outside the bowl would work well with Hawaiian-style grub...
Forgot to mention that the bento boxes at Mako are for two - traditional three-layer style boxes. You get to keep the box, and future refills are $10 off. I almost grabbed a couple for the Bowl last year but they needed one-day advance notice, which didn't work for me at the time...
