In an earlier discussion about the unfortunate product sold by Onigilly, david kaplan had described onigiri in Japan, carefully wrapped so that the nori does not touch the rice until you’re ready to eat it. Last week I found this type of onigiri at Clover Bakery in San Jose (near Mitsuwa).
I tried a salmon one. The special wrapping separates the moist white rice from the nori wrapper keeping it dry and crackly until ready to eat. The instructions for removing the wrapper were printed in English, so I’m wondering if these are available elsewhere too.
