Onigiri, also known as omusubi, nigirimeshi, or rice ball, is Japanese comfort food. It is made of white rice wrapped in nori and formed into triangular or cylindrical shapes. Because rice balls are light and easy to carry, they are popular for lunch, picnics, field trips, and school events. In addition, Onigiri is a symbol of family love in Japan, so mothers and grandmothers make rice balls for their children or grandchildren.

Premium Gourmet Crafted Onigiris

The Tuna Mayo is creamy, rich, and decadent. This is the ideal onigiri for seafood fans. Another option is the Salmon Mayo. The combination of fish and Japanese mayo is a match made in heaven. This onigiri is proof of that. In addition to seafood, Samurice Japanese Classic onigiris include Chicken Teriyaki. Soft bites of chicken cooked in a sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce fill this onigiri.
The first item on the list is everyone’s favourite Pork Samgyupsal. This onigiri is made with gochujang-flavoured rice and a hearty Korean BBQ. Do you like it spicy? Chicken Galbi has a mild heat with sweet and salty elements. The last is the Beef Bulgogi. This onigiri is filled with sweet and savoury beef.
So, which is my favourite? I honestly like them all because they each have a distinct flavour that I enjoy. But if I had to choose one from each category, I’d go with Salmon Mayo, a Samurice Japanese Classic Onigiri, and Beef Bulgogi, a Samurice Spicy Korean Onigiri.
I love salmon, and combining it with Japanese mayo in rice and nori is a delicious medley. The Beef Bulgogi, on the other hand, is spicy but flavourful. I don’t like spicy food, but if it’s mild and delicious, I don’t mind at all!
