Soul Food from Japan

You can find this traditional food called Onigiri or Omusubi at any convenience store in Japan. But it’s quite easy to make and really tasty if we cook at home. 

Ingredients are unique in these years but traditional one is salted sour plum, kelp cooked with shoyu, tarako cod roe etc… Actually we can put anything inside such as BBQ meat or tempura, sausage, spicy miso, yakitori etc etc… I prefer simple one but you can enjoy it unique version at Onigiri or Bento Shop or department store … even seven eleven etc. Hope you will find your favorite while your stay in Japan!

    Love this. Was just in Japan and I would buy it at the convenience stores and supermarkets. Loved it especially the one with salmon.

    It’s good to hear you enjoyed it! Yeah… salmon is one of most popular filling I think šŸ˜‰ When you can steam Japanese rice at home, you can make it easily … If it’s too hot shaping freshly steam rice by hands, you can put some rice in a small bowl and make a little hole to put some fillings then cover it by additional rice. Then wash your hands and put some salt while your hands wet, take a rice from the bowl on your hands and hold it as triangle or round shape gently. So rice won’t stick on your hands. Enjoy!! šŸ™
