How cool would it be if your mom made you these bento boxes? Bento is a home-packed meal common in Japanese culture. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish. These bento boxes have just that extra kick - they take you back to that old school video game or anime movie - for a brief second, before you devour your food. So long Wall-E, it was nice knowin' ya!
