Ili •  Oct 29, 2019


Six months ago, we brought to you the wonderful news of a 7-Eleven convenience store in Asakusa selling halal bento. Fast forward to today, we’re excited to share more amazing news about these Japanese-style lunch boxes! Drum roll, please.

These bento sets come in 3 different flavours - Gyudon (beef rice bowl), Butter Chicken Curry and the newly launched flavour, Vegetable Penne (no meat). If you’re anything like us, you’d give all three of these a try!
