Onigilly, pronounced “Oh-Knee-Ghee-Lee” according to the handy pronunciation key at Onigilly.com, bills itself not only as the “Samurai Snack,” which is “Yummy, Healthy & Handy!” but, in my estimation, is the definitive experience in Japanese cuisine on wheels. The cart is parked at Justin Herman Plaza (5 Steuart Street at Market in SF) and is open from 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday and closes when its sold out of its savory seaweed-wrapped brown rice and gourmet fillings.
Daily menus are posted at Onigilly.com as well as on Twitter (@onigilly). At present writing, the menu features miso tuna salad, teriyaki chicken, hijiki black seaweed, and renkon lotus root.
Time to get your grub on, samurai.
