Our first taste of Onigiri

Kuantan, on the East Coast of Malaysia, is not where you would expect to be first trying Onigiri but for us it was.  We were hungry and unable to find the Malay restaurant we were first looking for, so Niko Niko Onigiri was the go.

Onigiri is a Japanese food made from white rice formed into triangular or oval shapes and often wrapped in nori (seaweed). Onigiri is stuffed various fillings and flavours including traditional pickled ume, salted salmon, to egg mayo, BBQ beef and many other things.   Onigiri makes rice portable and easy to eat and so is found in convenience stores.

While the girls had a range of Onigiri and udon and soba noodles, I went for the taste plate which let me make my own Onigiri style in much smaller portions – I went with BBQ Beef, Salmon and Crab Stick.
