Kawaba Rice Ball, Melrose



kawaba rice ball west hollywood


LOS ANGELES | Kawaba Rice Ball is a little store on Melrose that specialises in, you guessed it, rice balls. Onigiri or musubi, as they’re known in Japan, are balls or triangles of rice filled a range of different ingredients, and sometimes covered with nori (seaweed). They’re a very popular snack or lunch item in Japan as they’re tasty, nutritious, and easy to eat on the go.

The folks at Kawaba Rice Ball take the quality of their food very seriously – organic or natural ingredients are used where possible and rice is directly imported from Kawaba Village in Japan. In fact, this village is where the brand originated.

The fillings include meat, fish or Japanese-style pickled vegetables, and include traditional flavours like grilled salmon, and tuna mayo, and more locally inspired ones like the turkey soboro. Other menu options include things like miso soup, Japanese-style fried chicken, and mochi ice-cream. With food that’s simple, pretty, and delicious, Kawaba Rice Ball succeeds in doing what they do best at home, on this side of the Pacific.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
