    I started following Onigiri Shuttle Kororin on Instagram after hearing about them through Andale Market, a new bodega in Andersonville. Onigiri is a handheld meal of rice and fillings. These are made in a triangular shape. A much better explanation with photos can be found on their website. They are a cloud kitchen and have various delivery points around the city and suburbs. There is a special flavor each week that they announce in Instragram and probably also via email.

    I finally pulled the trigger for lunch today. The pickup in Uptown was a short walk from home. A lunch meal includes 5 onigiris, mushroom & tofu miso soup and oshinko pickles. They advised to heat everything up in the microwave. I didn't realize the pickles were inside the packages, though they didn't seem harmed by the reheat.

    I transferred the soup to a different container before heating. The bamboo leaf packages went on a plate into the microwave as is.

    We really enjoyed this meal. The variety of flavors was interesting. Our top three were the pork belly, salmon butter and corn cheese pepper. Five of them plus soup is quite filling. It's not an inexpensive lunch: $18.99 before taxes/fees/gratuity for the lunch pack that includes the pork belly. We'll do this again.

    Thanks for sharing this. I've been surprised that onigiri hasn't previously caught on here. I will definitely check out their shuttle. (Though darn, regretting that my husband is back in the office as of this week -- and gets their using our only car.)

    Agree, I dig onigiri. H-Mart Niles typically has a small selection in the prepared foods section as does Tensuke and Mitsuwa.

    GP, your lunch looks terrific, thanks for posting about onigiri.

    I sometimes roll my own onigiri, that maki, musubi and other items rolled in nori tend to look like a truck accident in my hands, but typically taste good. I'm particularly fond of tuna onigiri.
    Hold my beer . . .

    Hopefully one of the locations is close enough to negate the need for a car.

    We never spend enough time in H-Mart Niles, so now I have another excuse to head there.

    Sadly, none are close enough for me in RP. But we may order for Lakeview pickup one Saturday in the near future.
