In need of a quick snack? There’s not much better than Rice & Nori, a tiny Japanese onigiri shop on the ground floor of Weller Court in Little Tokyo. Perfect, triangular-shaped rice balls are coated in furikake and filled with shiitake kombu, Spam or a spicy tuna mayo that’s creamy without overdoing it. There’s also a collection of fun little housemade pickles, too: Napa cabbage with carrots, shiso-flavored daikon, and burnt-orange mountain burdock root. Hand rolls here aren’t bad but will get soggy if ordering for takeout. Eat ‘em fresh.
