Elevating your onigiri experience to unparalleled heights, this popular store from Taiwan redefines onigiri servings with a stunning array of flavors that will undoubtedly leave you yearning for more.

Have a Taste of Onigiri Planet’s Okinawa-Inspired Onigiri

Recently opened in Singapore’s Hillion Mall, Onigiri Planet has swiftly charmed countless locals with its imaginative spin on the classic onigiri. Enthroned in Bukit Panjang, this new takeaway establishment marks the brand’s overseas venture in Singapore, complementing its impressive roster of nearly 50 outlets across Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.


Compared to the traditional onigiri, Onigiri Planet’s rice balls lean more towards Japanese sushi rice sandwiches, each meticulously crafted to order to ensure absolute freshness. For starters, you can try the Peanut Butter Katsu (S$6.90), which comes with a hot and crispy fried chicken katsu patty, spam, and egg and is slathered with sweet and savory peanut butter.


While this may not be the usual pairing that you have for your onigiri, for some reason, the crunchiness of the chicken blends well with the creamy and savory taste of peanut butter. However, if that still does not sit well with you, then maybe you’ll be up to try their most exciting rendition: the Grilled Mentaiko Scallops (S$6.90).


This unique offering features an indulgent combination of deep-fried, chewy, and smoky imitation scallops nestled between layers of tender rice and crisp seaweed sheets. This delightful ensemble is elevated even further with the addition of umami-rich and creamy mentaiko mayo, creating a harmonious symphony of flavors and textures that seemingly dance on the palate.


Another exquisite creation of Onigiri Planet is the Truffle Mushroom (S$6.90), which merges the earthy richness of the truffle encased in perfectly seasoned rice and nori. The filling also had a mix of other mushrooms, like shimeiji and portobello, eggs, and spam that brought out a symphony of flavors with every bite.


There’s also the Kimchi Chicken (S$6.90) that comes with the tangy kimchi and bulgogi chicken, Ebi Tempura (S$6.90), TarTar Fish (S$6.90), Double Cheesy, Creamy Croquette, and many others. If you want to make the most of your meal, you can also add some side dishes and drinks.


Feeling hungry now? Well, don’t miss the exciting treat offered by Onigiri Planet. Allow your tastebuds to revel in the harmonious blend of flavors and experience a different kind of culinary satisfaction with their unique take on the ultimate onigiri favorite. Check them out at Hillion Mall now!
