Holiday 'Bento Boxes' for your next Christmas party at home

By CAMILLE SANTIAGO Published Dec 09, 2020 9:56 am

Zoom party invites are coming your way! How are you celebrating?

For us, we believe that nothing brings people together like good food (even though we are all apart during the holidays). Instead of just having an e-numan for your Christmas parties, packed meals are a great way to bond with friends, relatives, and colleagues. Not only that, it's also more convenient—no need to worry about cooking, packing, and cleaning.

Check out the list of restaurants and establishments offering holiday bento boxes this year.
