Zen Bento is a good place to get a fresh and flavorful meal. It is a little more expensive than I would like, but they have good quality meats and vegetables.

I always order Salmon Bento with sesame ginger sauce. It's very good. If you want something quick but not regular fast food, I recommend this place.

I combined a couple of the flavor options and it tasted great. Just wish the portion size was larger.

Zen Bento has very limited seating so you might want to try to go at off-peak times, but the simple but easy menu and quick service are a big plus. Very affordable and a great place for lunch or early afternoons.
