For those wondering, Taimeshi is simply rice with minced sea bream, and usually sells for ยฅ400 or so in large bento format, a far cry from the ยฅ1300 price NERV rations evidently command. The bento box itself is made out of high quality plastic and also comes with some NERV wooden chopsticks – the height of luxury for otaku diners.
