Japanese in origin, the word “bento” brings to mind elaborately decorated lacquer food containers from the Edo Period. It was a symbol of wealth and status then, with an emphasis on the aesthetics of food presentation. Today, it is a symbol of better workday lunches or meals, as it encourages portion control and a variety of dishes – each retaining its unique presentation, taste and texture all in one box. Choose a bento filled with different local favourites. Or pick a theme – Japanese classics, popular Thai dishes or Western mainstays. That’s the beauty of the bento with RichFood Catering.
