The idea of a complete, balanced meal with lots of little nibbles is one thing I love about bento. Especially when it’s prepared by other people and all I have to do is eat. I love preparing them, but hey, I’m allowed to be lazy too, right? When I was still working in the Makati area, one place where I loved picking bento up was Choto Stop in Little Tokyo.
Unfortunately, right after putting this post together, I learned from my friend Y that they’ve stopped selling bento a few months ago, right around the time I’ve stopped coming to Makati regularly to work. It’s such a pity since I really enjoyed the ones I’ve tried. I found it especially convenient to pick up a set lunch whenever I was thinking of working over lunch.
They used to have a wide variety of lunches to choose from, so I’d end up wasting precious time trying to decide what to get. Fortunately, I usually ended up satisfied with my meal.
I had a lot of happy packed lunches there, but sadly, they’ll be relegated to memory now. Thanks for the yummy lunches, Choto Stop!
