We are back from our holiday. :) I'm sharing the bento related bits of our shopping in this post. Hope you will find it useful if you are going over for a holiday in Taiwan. :)
You can find bento stuff in Daiso, Saiyukan and Hands Tailung. The stuff they carry are different, so I think the latter two are definitely worth a visit. You can probably give Daiso a miss if you already have one in your country.
I did not plan to go Daiso, but since We walked past one, I went in for a look. Spot the boys and me in the mirror. :P
Their bento stuff were the same as what we have in Singapore. But their goods were slightly cheaper, around $1.70 each.
More bento stuff that I saw at Daiso.
The next shop I went to was Saiyukan. They have quite a few branches, and most of their stuff are relatively cheap.
I went to three different branches, and the variety is slightly different.
Lots of lunch boxes, I did not get any coz my cupboard has no space. :(
Love their picks, it's cheap, most are priced at slightly over $2.
Nori punchers and rice molds.
These were from the baking rack.
And lastly, I went to Hands Tailung. This was opened by Tokyu Hands in Japan. For those who have been to Tokyu Hands, you will know that it spans 7 levels. But Hands Tailung in Taiwan is a lot smaller, it's only one level, and so the bento stuff are very limited.
These were from the shop above Taipei train station.
Sandwich cutters. :)
Sauce containers, picks, etc.
These were from Hands Tailung in Zhongli. I love the lego lunch boxes, but they were ex!
There was another rack of bento stuff, but the staff saw me and stopped me from taking photos after this shot. :P
These are my loots. I could not resist the picks coz they were cheap, though I hardly use them in my bentos. :P
Some foodstuff from their supermarket, and a bento book by a Japenese chef who is based in Taiwan. :)
And these will be for my 200th post bento giveaway. I'll probably add in a lunch box too then. :)
