All about ekiben

“I think food , culture, people, and landscape are all absolutely inseparable,” said the late Anthony Bourdain. In Japan, those three inseparable qualities can be found in ekiben, the iconic packed lunch that has served as a trusted travel companion for almost two centuries.

SPOTTED: Keebler Special Batch Strawberry Shortcake Fudge Stripes
