    Compliments to the PayPal app, my friend and I ventured out to try this place during the lunch rush. Spend $5, get $5 back from PayPal, just link your banking account or credit card and be sure to “save offer” first before paying through the app. Basically, you get 50% off, I’m sold!

    You have a couple of options here: Rice Bowl (which I got), Onigilly set (3 choices of onigilly), or the Soup set (2 choices of onigilly with miso soup). The rice bowl comes with a side of edamame which I wasn’t too crazy about but it’s healthy. After looking at so many options, I went with the snow crab, spicy shrimp, and soboro. The snow crab was surprisingly fresh and oh so yummy, by far my favorite out of the three that I tried! The spicy shrimp had a nice kick to it and had just the right amount of spice with the rice. It was just so flavorful! The soboro was a delicious and filling and filled me up.

    Reasonably priced and a healthy option for lunch that won't induce you to a food coma when you go back to the office!

    Onigilly is a new twist to sushi. They wrap nori around a big square lump of rice and add any type of meat or veggie on top. It is very healthy and a great place to try something new in the SF downtown area.

    Yummy! The menu has the instructions for ordering and when I was here, there was a worker who was coming outside with menus and to answer questions for people in line. Yup, there's a line out the door, but the place is small; I recommend taking your food to go and walking a block to the BoA plaza for a nice place to sit outdoors and eat.

    Order in 2 steps:
    1. Choose Onigilly set (or individual), Rice Bowl, or Salad Bowl
    2. Choose your flavors (what goes inside the Onigilly or rice bowl)

    Btw: it's actually spelled "onigiri", it's a Japanese rice ball. Nice play on name.

    I got the lunch set of 3 Onigilly and I really enjoyed my Soboro, Spicy Bacon, and Spicy Shrimp! It also comes with a salad on the side. Everything tasted fresh.

    I'll be back to try more flavors since it's so close to my office. They hand you a survey and if you fill it out, you get $2 off your next meal!

    I tried Onigilly today for lunch and it was quite tasty. I ordered the Onigilly set with Spicy Shrimp, Sake, and a seasonal chicken option. My favorite was the Spicy Shrimp! The menu is also carefully labeled with gluten free, vegan, and spicy options.

    So many choices to mix and match. Not to mention lots of daily specials.
