A "build-it-yourself" quick service restaurant that blends traditional Mexican style food with Asian flavors has opened on Waverly Place in Madison.
Bento Grill Philip Hu and Mars Pascual.
They said the style of restaurant is popular on the West Coast and people are always looking to try something new.
