Calling out for Japanese food lovers in town! 📢📢📢
I’d like to share my review about @lollyrice.mks that serves one of the best mentai rice and onigiri in Makassar.
But first thing first…
Get to Know More About Mentai Rice and Onigiri
Mentai rice or mentaiko is a Japanese food that has become a trend overnight lately. It consists of rice, salmon (other modified filling such as beef, chicken, sausage or shrimp), and torched mentai sauce as topping. Mentai sauce itself is a mixture of fish eggs marinated with mayonnaise. The blend combination of savory filling and creamy goodness of mentai sauce is simply heavenly.
On the other hand, onigiri or also known as Japanese rice balls has been the all-time favorite. It consists of rice, dried seaweed, and filling of salted grilled salmon (optional) with a triangular shape.
I have tried a few mentai rice and I should say @lollyrice.mks serves one of the best mentai rice in Makassar. The rice is moist, with big piece of salmon chunks (same as their beef and chicken filling), loads of crabsticks and layer of seaweed (nori). You couldn’t simply explained the creamy goodness taste in your mouth, you should try it yourself to know it!
Now, shall we move on to the next menu with same savory taste? Their onigiri is perfect for ‘grab & go’ snack because you don’t even have to heat it up, or if you’re in mood for a warm meal, just toast them lightly on a pan brushed with sesame oil for 2-3 minutes. I love all of the fillings- salmon, beef and chicken but my most favorite is spicy yakiniku. (To feel the tender meat spiced up inside your mouth, oh so mouthwatering🤤!)
Wait no longer! This is definitely a must try you wouldn’t want to miss. Kindly drop your DM at Instagram (IG): @lollyrice.mks.
