Sick of having soggy seaweed with your hand-roll or onigiri? Gekkazan promises their seaweed to be crisp and crunch whenever you visit.
It is my first time there so I am yet to try their hot food. I have been introduced to their hand-roll and onigiri with special wrapping technique where a plastic film is placed between the rice and seaweed – so that the seaweed will only be exposed to moisture when you unwrap it by following the instruction on the packaging.
It is all too difficult to explain in words so I have prepared a short 2 minutes film of my friend Typhoon demonstrating how it is done.
