>Bento Box

>I have a long list of items I like to complain about regarding England. One of my favourite is food. I don’t subscribe to the common misconception that there’s nothing worth eating in England – there is. But generally you have to make it yourself or pay a lot of money. There’s a chain of sandwich shops the North West called Philpotts and they do wonderful sandwiches and you pay for that. Where we currently work there’s one place that does sandwiches. Their idea of variety is brown or white. Anyway – back to Japan where I am currently sitting.
Left is a standard bento box picked up from the local convenience store. This is actually one of my favorites as I’m such a greedy guy. My in-laws here view these are being frankly low cost rubbish but they’ve never tried getting a cheap lunch in the UK. Within the box you get (deep breath and in no order)
Fish, Potato Croquet, Hamburger, Rice, Seaweed, Chicken, Sausage, Potato Salad
Chikuwa, Potato Salad, Pickle and Spaghetti. You’ll also get it heated up if you want but I eat mine cold. There’s a huge amount (I only ate about 2/3 of it) and it tastes great. The cost of this is 460 Yen. At todays exchange rates that’s £2.23.

Still, try getting a decent cheese sarnie here.
