Definition: Bento


Bento
A single portion boxed lunch or meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish/meat and vegetables on the side. The containers are usually compartmentalized, but not always.

It is even thought of as an art form and a skill. The food is often arranged to resemble other objects, such as flowers, leaves, cartoon characters etc.
