Famous bento lunch, Alisan Taiwan



Enough of bentos and convenience food? Hang on there. This is perhaps the last "bento" I'm featuring.

A famous bento known as 奮起湖便當 (FengQiHu Bian Tang or FengQiHu Bento).

Feng Qi Hu
locates a train station near Alisan,Taiwan. The story goes that...when the the lumber business was in its heyday, a box lunch seller got on a train at Feng Qi Hu station (奮起湖站 ) where everybody rushed to buy a box lunch. Local box lunches (also known as bento) were sold to passengers on the rail line. FengQi Lake (奮起湖) became a tourist attraction in Alisan.
