For anyone reading my blog on a regular basis, you'll know I have mad love for Onigilly. I am hesitant to single out any food truck here in San Francisco as my favorite because they are all good, and each has something special, but I can say that whenever I go to Off the Grid Onigilly is usually my first stop. I don't even glance at the menus of the other trucks before stopping at Onigilly and choosing one of their three treats. It's like my admission ticket, so to speak.
The filling today was more than usual, so that added a nice bonus to my snack. In fact, it oozed out when I took my first bite, and I really got the full flavor of the shrimp. It's creamy, spicy, and is typical of the spicy shrimp (or tuna) in a sushi restaurant. There were lots of small shrimp, which gave it a nice texture, and the spiciness was enough to give it a kick. It was not so overwhelming, however, that it dulled my taste buds. It's really hard to eat just one of these treats! Even when I am full, I still desire more.
