Bento: Asian Food Delivered on Demand in San Francisco!
There’s a fairly new food delivery service in town! The other day, I was feeling lazy, hangry (yes, HANGRY!) and wanted something quick so I decided to give Bento a try. Bento is an on-demand food delivery service that delivers healthy, fresh food in a fast and sustainable manner. The Bento app allows you to build your own bento by choosing 1 of 4 main dishes and 4 of 8 side dishes. Then it’s delivered to you within minutes. Note: Since they are an on-demand app, they sell out depending on demand so order quickly!
What I really like about Bento…
- They are open Monday through Friday from 11 am – 10 pm so you can conveniently order your lunch or dinners
- $12 for a Bento but if you use promo code OISHII, it’s just $7 + free delivery
- You have the chance to build your own bento within their app
- Unlike other food delivery services, bento is cooked by their own chefs (Mattin Noblia, Executive Chef was on Bravo’s Top Chef Season 6!)
- Delivery takes an average of 15 minutes
- No delivery fees
- Very clear communication, you will receive text messages with an update on your delivery
- They use Onfleet delivery tracker so you know exactly where your driver is

Trust me, your food will be delivered to your curbside in just minutes. Once your order is en route, you will receive text message updates. You will also be sent an Onfleet delivery tracker for minute by minute update. When the driver arrives, you will receive a text message telling you to look for the green flag on the driver’s car and to meet the driver at the curbside.
