Since becoming parents, dinner-and-movie more often is take-out and a DVD. Until recently this caused a dilemma. My favorite food came packaged in petroleum-based Styrofoam. All that has changed.
Heiwa Shokudo has eliminated the bulky, nonrecyclable, nonbiodegradable material, opting to package their superb Tuna Spicy Garlic and other menu items in a sturdy pressed-paper product. Ask your favorite take-out if they can seek an alternative to Styrofoam, or go to Heiwa.
