Bento Boxes in Halifax!

I got a gorgeous new bento box this weekend.

And most amazingly and wonderful of all, I bought it at a local store!

I got this at Drala and they had about five left. So to all of my Haligonian readers who don't make bento lunches yet, now you have no excuse! It's next to pizza corner in the same building where the bead pod used to be, in case you don't know where it is. They have them with silver butterflies too! (Disclaimer: I'm not in any way affiliated)

This bento box is huge, so I will probably only use the top tier most of the time. Each tier is about the size of my blue dragonfly bento box. Maybe I should start packing bento breakfasts so that I can use both :P

My only complaint is that the box doesn't have a rubber seal like my other bento boxes, but I never actually let them flip upside down anyway, so it should be fine. I plan to just put my red bento belt around it. It matches perfectly.

So now we will both have single tier bentos. Nice!

I have a bento box very similar to this and I love it. Like you said, the only problem is that it doesn't seal well. I normally wrap my w/ a bandanna and it keeps the layers held together well.

I need to get a bigger box.
I once order a pink bento box double layer but the seller wasn't able to ship it because it was broken. So now I only have small bento boxes that don't really fit much food.
