Mana Bu’s Homemade Japanese Musubis and Sweets

This is no ordinary musubi stop. Mana Bu’s offers white rice, brown rice, okowa sweet rice, and original 10-grain-blend rice musubis, which are filled with everything from the staple Spam to unconventional combinations like curry pilaf. Husband-and-wife duo Manabu and Fumiyo Asaoka label each homemade musubi concoction with the origin of the ingredients. The musubis are not only healthy, they are also delightful to eat, with just enough moisture and not at all greasy. 1618 S. King St., 358-0287.
