Take-Out Sushi…Should I Or Shouldn’t I?

I don’t know about you, but ordering in Sushi is something that I’m squemish about. Call me kooky, but I’m very particular where I eat it and even more so where I order in from. I have my dining in favorites scattered around town. But for ordering at home, my go to is Lebiban.

Lebiban, located in North Chelsea, is my go to spot for take-out Sushi. The food is fresh, portions are healthy, delivery is prompt and best of all….they’re cheap. When it comes time to ordering, I’m a creature of habit. A bento box. I know you’re probably thinking; “What is so special about a bento box?” Let me explain.

Their bento box consists of not 1 but 2 items along with miso soup, salad, california roll & rice (brown or white). All for $14. My usual order is salmon teriyaki and shrimp tempura with brown rice. My meal arrives in its platter with various compartments holding each treat. The salmon is grilled with a tangy teriyaki sauce. The shrimp are coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs. Every order comes with 2 large pieces plus an assortment of veggies which usually consists of broccoli, zucchini and sweet potatoes. Quite a filling meal. The box is a party of flavors and textures. Mmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Because this platter is packed with food, I usually save the soup and salad for another day. Perhaps with a seaweed salad or gyoza dumplings. See where I’m going with this? Two meals for the priceof one.

So if you too have doubts about ordering in sushi, don’t fret anymore. Lebiban will take care of your craving and your hungry belly.

Happiness, $25 and under.
