Will Miss #207 - onigiri

When I first started living in Japan, I was confused and squeamish about a lot of the food. One of the few things I could grab and eat "safely" on the run was onigiri or "rice balls". My favorite was the tuna, which was blessedly familiar in composition with a dab of tuna and mayonnaise in its center. Taken by itself, rice can be relatively bland, but onigiri often spice up the mix with various add ins, a seaweed wrapper, or a filling.

I'll miss the easy access to and wide variety of onigiri.
