The Kids Are Alright: Kiddie Bentos Launch at Union


(Urban) kids today. They have closets that boast concert tees from The Ramones and The Police. They love the nightlife at Baby Loves Disco. They know their way around an iPhone, practically from birth. And they expect more from their dining experience than they used to. After all, their palates have evolved… they are looking for a happier meal.

Enter the Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar Kiddie Bento Boxes:


For $10 each, these mini, two-tiered boxes boast a bowl of Vegetable Soba Yaki Noodles, a small serving of Barbequed Eel garnished with carrot and cucumber in a sweet soy sauce, a Sweet Potato “Tater Tot” and a choice of Chicken Teriyaki, Wagyu Beef Teriyaki or a Breaded Pork Cutlet with Tokatsu Sauce. Scroll down to learn how your little one can enjoy a FREE bento box at Union!

Union Sushi Duck Wing Eating Contest Recap

They came, they ate piles of our “Duck Wings” and a winner was crowned!


Kenny Kobe-Achi, Todd Stewart, Sharon Shi and Rob Mowry stepped up, wolfed down Chao’s legendary “Duck Wings,” drank water, got messy, ate more duck wings, drank more water and, at the end, the largest pile of picked-bare bones clinched victory for Todd Stewart!

If you missed it (how could you?), check it out in this quick, action-packed video!
