Probably the best way to describe it is - triangular sushi. Traditionally Japanese, also known in Korea as samgak gimbap (삼각김밥). Sticky rice, meat, and sauces, wrapped in seaweed and typically also wrapped in a plastic wrapper that must be removed to consume.

Where to get Onigiri

Picked up some molds today to make the shaped ones. There are 3...a flower, a curved one and a sort of half-clover shape. They were $7.99....and it is usually my policy to not spend money on silly gadgets, but I REALLY wanted them. I got them at Global Giftware, there are 2 sets left I think. (Not that I care....I've already got mine!)

A coworker of mine's parents own Miga and he just gave me one of these which he could not finish from his lunch. Basically a giant, triangular sushi - it was extremely yummy!
