“Guests may make their own selection from each category either A or B,” explains general manager Ryan Ko. “They may also make their own combination bento by selecting two items from category A, two items from category B, or one selection from A and one from B.”

There are also some standalone dishes that are perfect for families on the go.

Opt for the 16-piece Shokudo Deluxe Nigiri Set ($35) that comes with a little bit of everything for the seafood lover in your home, or grab a Sukiyaki Donburi ($5 regular; $8 large) that comes with a hearty helping of perfectly prepared meat atop a bed of rice.
