T2014 7 11 Onigiri

There seems to be one 7-11 convenience store on every street in Taipei so whenever we need a quick bite, we would pop into one and buy an onigiri to keep hunger at bay.

TWD30 (about MYR3.60) for one. Get a pack of milk with this for a total of TWD49 (MYR5.9)

Omelette and I think some pickled radish wrapped in chewy purple rice. Cold when bought but one could leave it for a while and eat it when it is at room temperature.

TWD32 (about MYR3.85) for one. Get a pack of milk with this for a total of TWD49 (MYR5.9)

I love to eat this. Can't get enough of them. Tasty salmon wrapped in soft rice and seaweed. So delicious! I like eating this cold rather than at room temperature (it was stored in a fridge in 7 11). Why isn't this available in our 7-11s?

  3. The one with salmon looks tasty. It's amazing that these are sold at 7-11 in Taipei. Would be nice if our 7-11 here sold these but then it would be expensive, no?

  7. My friend once worked for the 7-Eleven offices in Taipei and she told me that Taiwan has 5000 stores while Japan has over 18000!! That is world's highest number but we might think Taipei has more because they open these stores too close to each other. There is one street where you find 3 outlets within a stone 's throw away.

    I love to hang out at these franchise stores in Taiwan, Japan and Thailand. Interesting!

    1. Maybe the purple rice is just a rice roll. I don't know officially can it be considered an onigiri, hehehe.

  10. Yum! I like onigiri too but I prefer it to be packed separately e.g. the nori and the rice is separate so it won't become soggy. Some konbini packs it like that, I think Family Mart in Taiwan does - you have to open the plastic wrapper vertically (up) first before pulling the sides away. If you look you can see the seaweed is separated by plastic and only comes together when you pull the sides away.

    1. The 7 11 there also sell those types that packed the seaweed separately like what you have described but I did not buy those again because that salmon is not that nice.
