Onigiri Corner

Welcome to The Onigiri Corner inside Asahi Imports. Inspired by the immaculate konbini (convenient stores) found all over Japan serving high quality, house-made grab-n-go products, we strive to bring that same level of quality and authenticity to our beloved city of Austin. Our kitchen team is helmed by first-generation Japanese women who have raised their own children and grandchildren and spent a lifetime making comforting, home-cooked meals for their families. That same love and tradition translates into our menu offerings at The Onigiri Corner: simple, satisfying and soul-soothing, just like mom makes.

日本中にある、清潔で高いクオリティを提供している “コンビニ” (コンビニエンスストア)にインスピレーションをうけ、同じ品質と本物を私たちの愛するオースティンにも届けようとして日々努力をしています。 私たちのキッチンスタッフは、日系一世で彼女の子供と孫を育てながら毎日家族に手作りの美味しい食事を作ってきた母親でもある女性のアイデアと日本の伝統をおにぎりコーナーに受け継いでます。私たちはシンプルで安全、そしてまるでお母さんが作ったような気持ちのなごむ商品を 目指しています。
