Onigiri also known as Omusubi is a Japanese rice ball snack most commonly formed into triangle or oval shapes and wrapped in seaweed. Traditionally, the onigiri is filled with umeboshi, shake (salted salmon), katsuobushi or any other salty or sour ingredient. If a person pours vinegar on the onigiri, it transforms into sushi, and a different kind of food. In practice, however, either is used for preservation of rice.

I _think_ that's what I had in Japan, specifically Okinawa. Spent the night in a bar, my buddy had made fast friends with the bar owner. Very typical Okinawan bar - the size of a large bedroom.

How much did we drink? We spent $40 on booze. But that was with the owner matching us drinks. Anyhoo on the way back in the taxi the driver split his breakfast with us; rice formed into balls, with tasty bits in the middle.

Good times ...
