Omaha has several Asian food markets but only one true Japanese one. And this Japanese one sells lots of cluttery type of items, chopsticks, statues, etc. All sorts of things EXCEPT bento boxes. Yep. In the many many years I have been going there I have never found a bento box there. Until I went to get sushi fixins this week.
I actually, honestly, truly, got excited about seeing these boxes! I did not expect them at all. So of course I bought one of each. I’ve always loved the square Lube Sheep boxes – lots of room – but have never gotten one. Either they were too expensive or unavailable. Once they got discontinued that was that. And here were several on a shelf in front of me! Very happy with my little store right now.
