Kobe Beef Bento Box
Awhile back, I remember trying this delicious bento. I think it's one of the more popular choices, especially amongst train geeks like myself. There are a few others which I will post a bit later. This Kobe Beef bento box is hard to keep stock as they sell out very quickly. Kobe Beef is a kind of premium grade marbled fatty beef that's extremely expensive. However, there are other notable greats like Yonezawa Beef which is a bit less expensive, but tastes just as good, probably better in my opinion since I like fatty beef. What's interesting is that Kobe Beef is a 100% Japanese creation whereas Yonezawa Beef was brought over from the West by a certain Englishmen who then popularized it and gave it international recognition. It's important to remember that the Japanese have been making premium grade beef long before the West did, in fact Kobe Beef has its origins in Shikoku then it gradually became popularized in Kobe and then recognized all over the world. Nice lunch!
