    Good for quick sushi pickup. But I prefer BentOn Cafe for bento boxes

    It's like a little Japan in the middle of New York, great onigiris, plenty of iced drinks and snacks, and nice customer service

    At lunch: sushi and dumplings & shumai-like items in the front. Head to the back for warm soba and rice bowls.

    When I'm killing time waiting for a train at grand central I come here. Lots of prepared foods, Asian groceries, and take away meals. You can also stay and eat upstairs.

    The drink selection could be better (seriously, where's the CC Lemon?), but the bento and onigiri selections nearly make up for that.

    A cute convenience store popular for workday lunch breaks. Pick up a few Japanese snacks with your dish!

    How lucky I am that Dainobu is by my office. Sushi, noodles at the back counter, and all sorts of pickled and/or salty snacks make this place my favorite lunch destination in midtown.

    Hot food in the back is where it's at. Served until 5pm. Beef Don or Spicy beef w tofu -> best lunch you ever had for $7. Also grab a bottle of Japanese green tea & some fruit gummies. Thank me later.

    I like their excellent selections of Japanese snacks, natto, and iced coffee. They also have a food bar inside the market where you can order hot takeouts.The 29th of each month is the "meat day."

    Present your credit card or cash with both hands in that polite Japanese way and the counter staff will return the compliment when they give you your change or receipt to sign
