Silicone bento supplies in Los Angeles area?

Has anyone seen silicone bento cups like these?

I searched all over Little Tokyo Plaza as well as Little Tokyo Market Place on Alameda yesterday with no luck. Thanks for any leads!

  1. Marukai in Gardena has the largest selection of bento that I have seen but I don't think they have cups like that. If you go there look in the far end of the store where all the ceramics are for the bento plastic bento boxes. There is also the Marukai 99 cent store down the street from the big Marukai, but it seems to me like the selection there is slightly smaller. I guess if you're gonna drive all the way there might as well try both.

    1. If you strike out locally maybe take a look on Ebay:

      1. Sur la Table and Cost Plus have silicon cupcake molds that I use for bento. Cost Plus had some different shapes, stars and maybe diamonds.
