The Japanese phrase, め で たべる, (me de taberu), translates to ‘to eat with your eyes’. The Japanese culture believes the presentation of food is as important as the texture, flavor and aroma. Simple or elegant, presentation, placement and design are a valuable element of enjoying a meal.
This is just one of the many reasons fast casual restaurants are seeing a rise in the popularity of Bento boxes. The Bento box has a long history in Japan dating back to the Kamakura Period (1185 to 1333). Traditionally, Bento boxes contain a healthy array of many different foods such as fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and rice, all crafted with care and made using high-quality ingredients.
It’s taken a few centuries, but Bento boxes have finally found their way to many fast casual menus and are becoming very popular. And why wouldn’t they? Bento box meals offer any restaurant an excellent opportunity to create artistically crafted dine-in or “on-the-go” menu options.
Pork Goyza is always a favorite, light and tender Japanese dumplings stuffed with juicy pork and cabbage delicately seasoned with garlic, scallions, ginger – simple, pure perfection in a box! Another Bento box favorite is Somen Salad, a simple salad of vegetables and protein served over a bed of very thin wheat somen noodles.
If you’re considering adding Bento boxes to your menu and want to keep customers coming back for more, stay with the tried-and-true tradition of using high quality authentic Japanese ingredients.
