Food Review: Niko-Niko Onigiri, Bandar Puchong Jaya

Moo was craving for Japanese food, which was quite odd since she rarely eats it but hey, I’m not complaining!

We went to try out a place called Niko Niko Onigiri in Bandar Puchong Jaya. Other than the menu which proclaims that they specialise in onigiri, there is virtually no Jap vibe to the deco – feels more like a no-frills canteen.

I had the set meal (RM8.90) which came with two large pieces of onigiri , a small side of fried chicken and cold mashed potato. There is a wide selection of fillings to choose from: salmon, fried shrimp, baby octopus, etc. I went for salmon and baby octopus.

While the onigiri was sizable, it was mostly normal rice (You have to add 50c for Japanese rice), with just a smattering of filling. With only one small piece of salmon in the entire ball of rice, I had to dip it in soy sauce because it was so bland. The fried chicken was really bad – tasted like cardboard pieces, but the potato was okay.

I guess the price is proportionate to the taste?

Bro had Japanese curry rice (RM9.90).

I’m the only one in my family who eats sashimi, so I had this entire plate of salmon to myself. (RM14). The portion was again, quite sizable, the pieces were not too thinly cut and it was fresh.

Moo liked her udon, which came with a piece of fried ebi, egg and seaweed.

If you want affordable Japanese food in big portions, Niko Niko Onigiri is the place to go. I was a little disappointed with their rice balls but maybe it was because I didn’t try their signature.
