The Best Bento - 祭寿司


If we discuss bento, I cannot skip the best I can think of. In Okayama prefecture, they have so-called “Matsuri (festival) zushi”. Though I did not grow with it in the neighboring prefecture, my wife’s family was from this area, and I know the standard of the taste is common to say the least. It is difficult to find this sushi in Tokyo but we know a sushi-bar near Shinjuku Gyoen Park offers “bara-zushi” to go featuring red snapper, shrimp, conger, Spanish mackerel, Japanese shad and others for the price of merely 1,000 yen. The quality is outstanding and authentic.
