For Regular Sale

At Sydney World Rice Festival, Washoku Lovers are partnering with chef Takumi to bring you yakionigiri (grilled rice balls) in two great flavours. The first flavour is kikkoman soy sauce and miso, and the other is mouth-watering wagyu sukiyaki rice balls (wrapped in thinly-sliced wagyu beef).

Kikkoman soy sauce makes grilled rice balls perfect. We make them on a charcoal grill and it comes with a delicious smoky flavour.

Itoen Oi Ocha green tea is always good…

Itoen green tea is always good to have with rice, ever since thousands of years ago. We always enjoy rice with green tea. We will introduce the best pairing rice and green tea in a limited supply.
