Japan’s favourite holiday Golden Week technically starts on Saturday 27th April. This year, the holiday stretches over a long 10 days and I’m sure there’s many of you who will be taking the bullet train to travel or to visit your families! That’s where Tokyo Station’s best bento lunch rankings come in handy!
1st place: Shrimp, crab & salmon bento (Tsukiji Sushi Sei, Marusei) ¥1,250 (price after tax)
This bento is packed with salmon and shrimp and pieces of crab meat. It’s quite popular amongst girls!
2nd place: Beef in sweet ankake sauce served with fried rice (KAMONKA) ¥741 (price after tax)
Beef boiled in a special sweet ankake sauce and then dished up with fresh fried rice when the order comes in!
※ Sales may continue only until the start of summer.
3rd: place Ginger-fried pork bento (Asakusa Teppantei) ¥1,190 (price after tax)
The beef used is from Japanese Black cattle, which is sourced from within Japan. The strong ginger taste makes for a very adult-like flavour.
1st place: Large hamburg steak with kinako pork katsu bento (TSUBAME GRILL DELI) ¥1,280 (price after tax)
You can enjoy both TSUBAME GRILL DELI’s popular hamburg steak and pork katsu in one hearty serving!
※ Limited to Ecute Tokyo, only 50 of these bentos will be sold every day.
2nd place: Hifumi bento (Furusato ryouri Fukuzen) ¥1,350 (price after tax)
Flame-seared Kanzaki aged beef, sweet and spicy beef tendon boiled in soy sauce and Japanese pepper, and a hamburg steak made from beef and hakkinton (creamy, delicious pork), seasoned with shio-kombu. This is your chance to enjoy three different kinds of meat and deliciously seasoned kombu (kelp).
3rd place: Yellowtail fish in teriyaki sauce and nori seaweed bento (Hakejyoyu Noribenyamanobori) ¥1,944 (price after tax)
This isn’t too oily and the Japanese Amberjack yellowtail even remains plump and delicious when cooled. There are only a limited number of these bento and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Tokyo station bento: Nihombashi Daimasu, Tokyo ¥1,680 (price after tax)
If you’re looking for the perfect Tokyo ekiben (station-bought lunch box), this is it! It comes in a box with a beautiful Tokyo station print and retro wrapping. The contents are also delicious and carefully made, packed with the special flavours of an experienced bento-making shop.
