Singapore’s favourite Japanese supermarket Don Don Donki has just unveiled a new onigiri concept kiosk: Tomita Seimai!
Situated in the deli section of Orchard Central’s Don Don Donki, Tomita Seimai offers premium handcrafted onigiri made with freshly-milled specialty Japanese rice. Ready-made onigiri options include flavours like Hakata Mentaiko ($3.90), Hokkaido Sesame Konbu ($3.50), Unagi ($3.50), Saba Teriyaki ($3.50) and more, with 10 flavours in all.
Aside from the selection of onigiri on display at the front of the kiosk, the star of the show is undoubtedly the $23,000 milling machine proudly put on display. Specially imported from Toyama, Japan, the hefty machine is responsible for milling the rice used to make their onigiri, and you can even purchase freshly-milled rice to take home!
Rice milling services are available daily from 9am-5pm and you can purchase 2kg ($19.80 promo price) or 5kg ($62) rice that is milled to order. The machine even has 9 milling levels, so you can customise how polished you want your rice to be.
