Bento boxes and supplies

I'm looking to find somewhere that sells Japanese style bento boxes for lunches as well as the small items like food picks, tiny sauce bottles, egg presses etc. that go with them. Similar to the items found here:

I've checked Kim Phat on Jarry and there's nothing. Any suggestions?

  1. Have you tried Miyamoto at 382 Victoria in Westmount?

    There are a few other places that carry Japanese stuff - addresses here. Don't know about bento boxes specifically, but I'd check Miyamoto first:

    1. Give "Myamoto" a call ( I think they have bento box to sell

      1. I would try Miyamoto first, but you could also check out one of the many Korean/Japanese groceries as well as Tam Nam in Chinatown. I've seen some at Marché Hawai but apart the hilarious Engrish on them they weren't that interesting.

        1. There's a Banzai in Montreal, a Japanese 'dollar' store - famous out west in B.C. Anyways, I can guarantee you'll find MOST of your bento accessories here. I don't know the exact address but it's on Decarie just south of Sherbrooke, in between the Esso and Play It Again Sports. It's connected to a Korean grocery store, how convenient! Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

            Banzai of Montreal 2120 Decarie Blvd. Montreal, PQ H4A3J3 T: 514-484-4529

          2. There's also Toyama which is a couple of doors south of Miyamoto. 370 Victoria, 514-489-9555. They've got a lot of interesting stuff, including a lot of serving dishes and so forth.
