Origin Bento @ Hundred Stay Serviced Apartment and Hotel, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan

We were visiting Tokyo Japan and stayed at a serviced apartment - Hundred Stay Serviced Apartments & Hotel near Shinjuku, Japan. This accommodation is a mere 15mins away from the Shinjuku Station and there were many food outlets and supermarkets around. It is a very conducive and accessible place.

Below the serviced apartment was a recently-opened lunch box shop called Origin Bento. This shop is a 24 hours bento shop where you can buy food from bento to soup to onigiri and others. It is so convenient that you do not need to worry if you are hungry in the middle of the night. Beside the lunch box shop is a mini supermarket. Of course, you have three other mini-marts like Lawson, Family Mart and the 7-11 about ten minutes away.

We arrived late at night and were hungry. We bought two onigiri - chicken and mayo tuna and kaarage chicken (fried chicken). The rice dumplings were delicious. It was huge and was enough to be a meal as it was. The rice was freshly prepared and the ingredients were great! I always love to eat onigiri and this shop never disappointed me. The kaarage chicken was equally good. I love it too. (Food rating: 3/5)

Like a typical tourist, we could not resist the bento and bought a fried chicken bento set. Priced at 390 JPY, it was almost equivalent to having a meal in the Financial District back home. The food was affordable if you know where to look. The standards were high and I love the rice and the chicken. (Food rating: 3/5)
