The name is pronounced "omusubi," and it refers to the Japanese stuffed rice ball that serves the same purpose as a sandwich: It"s a starchy, satisfying, portable meal. The 14-seat restaurant"s nori-wrapped, palm-size triangles of rice are packed with tasty fillings (pickles, bonito flakes, pastrami). Grab a few of these and you"ll have a healthful, original lunch for less than five bucks. Or order a deal of three rice balls, a small appetizer and a cup of miso soup for about the same price as a fast-food combo.
