Ama’s Bento Boxes

The bento box at Ama's.

There’s only one thing I like more than pictures on the menu (which Ama’s doesn’t have), and that’s an assortment of dishes to taste. As we reviewed the menu, our waitress informed us that their bento boxes take some time to come out since each dish is prepared to order. Consequently, there was no question what I wanted — food worth waiting for.

Tucked on a side street in the West End of Providence, Ama’s is not your ordinary Japanese restaurant — there is no sushi and no maki. What you will find, however, is perfectly prepared chicken yakatori, edamame stuffed yuba, panko-crusted fish with a wasabi ginger mayonnaise, impeccably seasoned udon noodle soup, paper-thin mushroom gyoza, and enough sake to wash it all down.
