Rice triangles

Several vegan filling choices.

Pros: Tasty filling in a rice triangle with nori wrap, Nice to pick up for a picnic on Telegraph Hill

Cons: To go only

I have tried Onigilly a number of time while I lived in SF, as my office was nearby. I really wanted to love this place but the vegan flavors always fell short for me. They do have a number of vegan options clearly labeled on their menu. I see they added some more options such as tofu noodle soup and a rice soup, so I'll give them another shot at some point.

Filling and fresh

I love having this option if I happen to be in the area for lunch. They sometimes get busy at lunch hour so it might be smart to order in advance if you know you want to go there at peak time. All the vegan fillings I’ve tried are delicious and food tastes fresh and is very filling.
