BENTO Restaurant opens in Winter Park FL


BENTO asian kitchen + sushi invited me to their newly opened Winter Park location! and I was so excited to go. Some of you may not know, but BENTO actually has a very special place in my heart.

The first time I ate at BENTO, was when I was at the University of Central Florida and my friends and I would eat there in between classes. After college, I always ate at the BENTO location that’s walking distance from my boyfriends house. And now, as you can probably guess — there’s a BENTO right outside my job, and my coworkers and I eat there all the time!

Needless to say, BENTO holds a lot of fond memories for me. So, when I got the opportunity to do some food photography for them, I WAS SHOOK. It was a fun experience working with their marketing team, taking pictures of the food that I know the taste of. Seeing my photos all over their restaurant humbles me and makes my heart feel so full.

As you can imagine, I wasn't going to miss their new Winter Park social media opening. I had a great time seeing old friends and eating pretty much everything.

I had beer and sake, boba drinks, sushi for days, and built my own poke bowl. For dessert, I tried Mochi Donuts for the first time and oh my goodness you guys, it’s just as yummy as it looks.
