One Great Plate: Bento Taro
The brainchild of St. Paul noodle shop Tanpopo, these little boxes can be delivered all across the metro, bringing spice to your life.
You’re about to pass out from boredom during a stultifying meeting when they announce lunch! Excitedly, you open your little catered box to find the obligatory turkey sandwich, and you die of boredom anyway. What if there were a different box lunch
option? What if you could thrill your meeting-mates with something new, something different?
It might be time to banish the chicken Caesar with the arrival of Bento Taro. The brainchild of St. Paul noodle shop Tanpopo, these little boxes can be delivered all across the metro, bringing spice to your life.
The ingredients will change seasonally, but imagine lifting the lid to miso-marinated organic salmon, daikon and carrots in a sassy vinaigrette, a Japanese omelet with edamame, lotus roots with spicy mayo, and five-grain rice with pickled plum. It’s fresh, natural, and healthy enough to keep your brain awake and running through the next three hours of stats.
