    Rice balls are something you might have tried before coming to Japan. Who gave up eating them because of the seaweed? Nick’n’rolll is a rice ball that is rolled up with Niku (meat). Yeah, it rocks! You can add cheese or kimchi to make your rice ball rock even more. But you better be careful, as the meat itself is tasty enough! It only costs 290 yen and the shop is just two minutes’ walk from the South Exit of Shimokitazawa station.

    If you come out from the Shimokitazawa station, you can probably smell this heavenly treat. Fluffy, round, sweet and perfect.

At 550 yen (tax included) for a bag, they’re perfect for souvenirs too.
