Rice-ball combo at Oms/b Ditch prepacked sushi trays from the corner deli for one of the soup-and-rice-ball meals at this tiny Japanese takeout spot. The petite orbs of sticky white rice are stuffed with dozens of savory fillings, such as chopped wasabi l

The name is pronounced “omusubi,” and it refers to the Japanese stuffed rice ball that serves the same purpose as a sandwich: It’s a starchy, satisfying, portable meal. The 14-seat restaurant’s nori-wrapped, palm-size triangles of rice are packed with tasty fillings (pickles, bonito flakes, pastrami). Grab a few of these and you’ll have a healthful, original lunch for less than five bucks. Or order a deal of three rice balls, a small appetizer and a cup of miso soup for about the same price as a fast-food combo.
