Don't know what a plate lunch is? Let Pomai of Hawaii-based food blog The Tasty Island show you the way with this comprehensive/insane round up of plate lunches spanning all kinds serving containers. You've got the paper plate in a cardboard box, wax paper in a cardboard box, white Styrofoam "clamshell" takeout containers, black Styrofoam "clamshell" takeout containers, clear plastic takeout containers, and more, all piled high with rice, noodles, Spam, fried meats, teriyaki, sushi, macaroni salad, and...more. Probably best if you don't read this on an empty stomach.
