One person left a comment that I should try the onigiri here.



I’ve tried a couple of times to come here, I’m usually too late and everything is sold out.

The other day, I drove by just after 11:00, thinking I was early enough and they were still almost sold out.

I bought one shiso and wakame onigiri and one tuna salad onigiri with mentaiko (everything else was sold out).

I also added a bean salad with miso and sesame dressing.

Both onigiri were good. The shiso and wakame onigiri edged out the tuna salad onigiri with mentaiko by a bit.

After leaving Mana Bu’s, I bypassed here.


What possessed me to stop when I already bought lunch? I dunno. I’m glad I did. I found old-fashioned cone sushi.

Not sure if you can see them in the picture, but there are bits of carrots and green beans mixed in the rice. Apparently, cone sushi, a variation of inarizushi, is a Hawaii phenomenon (Hawaii’s gifts to the world, Spam musubi and cone sushi).

Also picked up an order of namasu.


Small kid time, I always liked cone sushi over the maki sushi.  Because the rice in the cone sushi was cooked in broth, it tasted better than the plain rice in the maki sushi. I also like the fried tofu that made the “cone.”

Two onigiri and one cone sushi, I was stuffed. Hopefully, the vinegar in the namasu helped aid digestion.  A very happy lunch. 🙂

Hopefully the next post will have some long-awaited news, stay tuned.
