Delicious Gainesville Finds On a College Budget

If you are tired of going to the same restaurants where the food is overpriced and not spectacular, this is the blog for you. I will visit a different restaurant that may not necessarily be well-known but might have amazing food for a reasonable price. I love food and hope to find a few new favorite restaurants. Eating on a budget, without having to splurge on Ramen noodles every day, is always a plus!

Bento Cafe offers delicious Pan Asian and sushi entrees and a modern, colorful atmosphere to enjoy your meal in. Soft, contemporary music is usually playing in the restaurant while the red light illuminates the ordering area. Not a fan of the Chinese food that I have found in Florida, Bento does an excellent job of satisfying my Asian hunger. Customers are able to pick from a variety of dishes, most with a signature meat and sauce combination, and choose whether they want their meal with noodles or rice. I typically order the garlic chicken noodle bowl that is covered in a delicious brown garlic sauce and is complemented by carrots and onions. Bento also gives you the option of calling your order in ahead of time to avoid the sometimes long line that can form in the small front area. The portions at Bento are pretty good, but this is definitely not the restaurant for a starving college student down to their last dollars. Meals usually are about $8.
