Onigiri on the go

Today, #2 travels down south with a college mate and several college staff. Apparently there are scholarship interviews taking place in two states and assistance is required.

#2 still struggles with her braces and asked that I make some Onigiri for her to take along just in case.

The large triangle ones are filled with Salmon and Avocado.
The barrels are mixed with furikake - a variety of beef and chicken.

The top box was packed with a croissant filled with Avocado, Mayo and Salmon.

The croissant cut into three pieces and packed in cling wrap.

A close up of the Onigiri.

I bought some onigiri moulds from Daiso. Was wondering if you know what is the Korean equivalent of Furikake? I have a Korean friend who orders Korean groceries from a Korean/Japan grocer and would like to ask her to buy for me. Not sure if she understands furikake, but I'm think there would be a Korean equivalent. Thanks!

Brittany: Have to, I love Onigiri!

Kat: I don't know if Koreans use Furikake, I've only bought them in Japanese stores. Sorry but I'm really not well versed in Korean ingredients enough to share anything in that context. *wide eyed grin*

Nightwing: My friend! We've been really busy in our own way! Heard you got married...Congratulations!

sandra: I've been packing food for bento which includes mayo for many years and never had it go bad.

I've made tuna mayo, tonkatsu topped with mayo, chicken mayo, ham mayo, Onigiri filled with 'something mayo' everything mayo...hahaha!

One thing for sure, if it's not in the fridge then it's normally packed for no longer than 2-3 hours before it's consumed,unless it's in an onigiri then overnight also possible.

paul smith: Tell me about it!
