Adventures in Jas Mart: How to Eat Onigiri Umeboshi

Jas Mart
35 St. Marks Place
New York, NY 10003
(212) 420-6370

FIVE SIMPLE STEPS to enjoying you pre-packaged rice balls:



Select your onigiri--my personal favorite is umeboshi (pickled plum)


Carefully read the instructions, apparently provided by Ikea


Presto, changeo--seaweed is applied to rice. It's time to eat!


Mmmm... that's tasty...


Don't forget to clean up all that plastic wrapping


MIKE EATS NEXT TIME: Yup, it's the best meal you can find on St. Marks Place for four bucks and wrapped in plastic with three-step instructions.

Wait...one of those things are $4!? Try Cafe Zaia right near St.Marks, across from Cooper Union. They have these too and I think they're cheaper! And the same fun is had opening them! I am constantly amazed by the Japanese...what will they think of next!? Personal computation devices???

Woah, last time I went, which was just yesterday... an ume onigiri was $1.29! Cafe Zaiya is cheaper, they sell them for about a buck each.
