You read that right, the Viewshop on Saint Catherine Ouest (1972, rue Sainte-Catherine O), across from Provigo, now carries Bento! The first type they carry is a rather large bento (1 tier) for $4.99 in green, blue, yellow, or pink with either a bow on the lid or a clear lid, and a spoon included.I didn’t bring my camera (I doubt they would let me take pictures anyway), so I can’t show you, but they are quite nice, and for the price and size, it is well worth it!
The second type I ended up purchasing. It is a 1200ml bento from Yoo Ee, and came in hot pink, green and blue (I believe..or was it yellow?). This is a 2 tier, again with a spoon included, and was priced at $12.99. I believe it is more for soups, and I think it is a thermous as well which will keep your hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold, AND it is microwaveable safe! I think it is so cute and so big. I have been waiting for so long for Viewshop to carry bento, so I was so surprised when I saw it them tonight, and for so cheap (compared to the rest of our options as Montrealers).
If you have never visited the Viewshop, I suggest you go as soon as you can. There are sooo many interesting this to look at and everything is so cheap. Great for gifts, beautiful watches for $20, pretty jewelry and makeup, contacts and cases, furniture, stationary stuff, kitchen and dining-ware, clothes that are often on sale, hair stuff….you name it, they have it, and for good prices!
Below you will see a few other pictures I took of the bento I bought, you can click on them to enlarge. Happy hunting!
