Love Zen Bento!

Posted on 10 / 07 / 2015

If you love rice and veggies you have come to the right place! They have a variety of yummy sauces to choose from. You can also get tofu! They do have meat options if you are with a carnivore. My meat eating friends love zen bento as much as I do.

Their staff is always friendly, and they are quick and healthy!

The Bento Box!

Posted on 05 / 20 / 2013

I love this place! Although it has meat in it, you can get tofu, veggies, or rice instead! You can also get sides of noodles and other things. What really makes this place special is their sauce. Make sure to sample all of them before you order! I highly recommend visiting Zen Bento!

Pros: Great tofu and sauce, Friendly staff, Incredible atmosphere
Cons: Lots of meat items, Not many places to sit, Steamed veggies are gross

Quick, cheap and kid-friendly

If your kid loves tofu, this is a great place to grab a reasonably priced and healthy lunch or dinner. The veggies are always fresh, the tofu is organic, and the sauces are tasty but simple. Plus, the service is always friendly, and there is Ban & Jerry's next door for dessert.

Pros: Fast, Inexpensive, Healthy
Cons: Limited menu
