Craving for a Japanese Rice Snack to eat while on travel? Or maybe just something to munch on while watching your favorite anime? There’s no need to travel far to find a Japanese restaurant. 7-Eleven stores in Luzon are now selling 7-Fresh Japanese Rice Snacks, which will satisfy your cravings!
7-Eleven Philippines is known for its diverse food selection, which includes everything from healthy Filipino meals (Chef Creations x Lugang Cafe, Busog Meals, and Hotta Rice) to international meals (FuwaFuwa Sandwich Box and Säntis Delicatessen) to fresh, vegan-friendly options (fresh fruits, Mixed Salad with Plant-Based Protein, and Vegetable Kit).
7-Eleven is expanding its international food offerings with the introduction of chilled 7-Fresh Japanese Rice Snacks, which include Salmon Mayo Onigiri, Tuna Mayo Onigiri, California Maki, and Mixed Maki.
Easy to eat? Get the Onigiri!
In Japan, onigiri is a popular breakfast or snack food. The sandwich-like rice ball, which is also commonly shaped into a triangle, has a long history dating back nearly two millennia to the Yayoi Period (200 B.C. to A.D. 250), when the first references to grilled sticky rice balls appeared.
Because they’re affordable, accessible, and easy to eat anywhere, these Japanese rice balls have become the go-to food for many busy Japanese people. Despite its unassuming appearance, onigiri can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients, making it a fun and tasty dish. This popular Japanese convenience snack is now available at 7-Eleven locations! Salmon Mayo Onigiri and Tuna Mayo Onigiri are two of their decadent flavors to choose from.
- Salmon Mayo Onigiri
7-eleven’s Salmon Mayo Onigiri is made from cold-processed smoked salmon and 100% Japanese rice, and it’ll make you feel like you’re in Japan for only Php 55!
- Tuna Mayo Onigiri
Their Tuna Mayo Onigiri is made with 100% Japanese Mayo and real skipjack tuna meat. At only Php 50, this is an excellent snack to satisfy your hunger!
Don’t be scared to try it! Here’s a quick guide on how to open the 7-Fresh Japanese onigiri:
- Pull the top tab labeled “1” until the whole strip around the onigiri is removed.
- Grab the second tab and slowly slide it off.
- Gently pull the last corner to avoid tearing the seaweed cover.
- Enjoy your onigiri!
Quick Snack? Grab a Maki!
Maki, also known as “makizushi,” or sushi rolls, is another popular Japanese dish. In comparison to onigiri, maki is a relatively new dish in Japanese cuisine, having first appeared in the latter half of the Edo period (1603-1867).
Because of its taste, nutrition, and convenience, maki has become popular in Japan and around the world. This Japanese food staple is now available in 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines. For your maki cravings, there are two options: the California Maki and the Mixed Maki.
- California Maki
Their California Maki, which costs only Php 50 for four pieces, is made with high-quality Kani or crab sticks, creamy Japanese mayo, and 100% Japanese rice.
- Mixed Maki
Why not try their Mixed Maki if you want to try something different with your maki? Featuring two maki flavors—spicy with minced meat and sausage—for only Php 50!
