Onigiri ~ The Sandwich of Japan
Onigiri is a humble and practical food, and with a lot of potential for cuteness, onigiri is a mainstay of the Japanese bento box and a popular quick meal. As with any sandwich, there is a range of mediocre onigiri to fantastically delicious onigiri. Obviously onigiri has nothing in common with sandwiches, except for the versatility they share.
For those of you that have no idea what onigiri is, it is a rice ball that usually has a filling and is usually wrapped in nori (seaweed). The fillings are endless.
