all this talk of shopping for bento IRL has me jealous! Anyone know Fort Lee in NJ - would THAT be a good place to go shopping for bento boxes and accessories?

I am based in Amsterdam, but will be in NYC over xmas...

Alot of stores in Chinatown (both Manhattan and in Flushing, Queens) sell some bento items. Although I've never been personally, I have good things about
in Edgewater, NJ (which is a short drive from Fort Lee).

I keep meaning to take the shuttle bus they run from Manhattan to their store...

forJoke - did you make it to Mitsuwa? If so was it worth the trip out there?

politely butting in - I was at Mitsuwa recently and while they had a few bentos, they were not very cute in my opinion.

*butting in too* The bentos I saw at the San Diego Mitsuwa were either child-sized Disney character ones or more masculine ones (and Mr Bento), but I found a one-tiered box that I like. I'm not a cutesy type so I went for the more masculine-looking one. hehehe. I hope forJoke found some stuff.

I DID go! I went yesterday and it was awesome. I was in heaven!!! Bought lots of accessories, chopsticks, boxes, muffin cups, and cute sauce bottles. Ingredients wise it was so fun too! But I still had to control myself, as I need to drag it all back to Amsterdam tomorrow.

I am looking to purchase Bento Boxes Wholesale. I need something in either the New York, or South Florida Area. Cheapest price, best quality.
