I believe most of you have already heard or seen something on this bento boxes trend. If not, let Wikipedia explain to us:

Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container. Containers range from disposable mass produced to hand crafted lacquerware. Although bento are readily available in many places throughout Japan, including convenience stores, bento shops, train stations, and department stores, it is still common for Japanese homemakers to spend time and energy for their spouse, child, or themselves producing a carefully prepared lunch box.

So, basically, a bento is a single-portion lunch, generally packed with love. For some time now, this Japanese tradition is making its way in western countries, in a way it’s almost becoming common. Here are some great examples of video game inspired bentos. For more pictures or instructions, please visit creator’s site that is linked below every picture.
