What is this food called?

It was served with sushi in a Japanese restaurant, I did ask what it was but couldn't understand the answer. It's rice covered in this brown sort of wrapping with sweet, slimy stuff almost like maple syrup over it... the wrapping this almost looks like a dim sim:

Inarizushi

Wikipedia wrote:
Inarizushi (稲荷寿司) is a pouch of fried tofu typically filled with sushi rice alone. It is named after the Shinto god Inari, who is believed to have a fondness for fried tofu. The pouch is normally fashioned as deep-fried tofu (油揚げ, abura age). Regional variations include pouches made of a thin omelette (帛紗寿司, fukusa-zushi, or 茶巾寿司, chakin-zushi). It should not be confused with inari maki, which is a roll filled with flavored fried tofu.

I like Inari with the seaweed salad in it. It's served open rather than wrapped in a bundle. The sweet rice one is good though.



You can get this everywhere here.

No, I don't believe you. I've never seen it at the gas station, book store, pharmacy, hardware store. Only at a sushi joint. So I'm calling shenanigans.

You can get this at all asian takeaway food joints that have sushi. You can find those places everywhere. Though I've heard you can buy this in gas stations in Hawaii.

That looks delicious! There's no way it exists around here (Ohio).

It's actually very very delicious. The seaweed is soft but crispy and wet and has a faint sesame oil flavor. And they are about two dollars each. The tofu on the outside is very sweet.

Re: What is this food called?

The sushi bars with the conveyor belts around the preparers are great cheap places for stuff like this.

Unless you're like me and you cannot resist the lure of new little dishes you might not have tried.

I love this seaweed. I must look around to find this tofu thing in the local Japanese takeaways.

I'm hungry now

You can buy sheets of it in grocery stores though I don't know if it is as sweet.

I like just eating that seaweed as a salad.

Re: What is this food called?

I like adding this seaweed when I prepare Korean bibimbap. I am not entirely sure, but I think salads are prepared with sesame oil, which only makes it better.

It's supposed to be very healthy too

Here's a pic of some bibimbap I ate three days ago. You can see what looks to be the seaweed salad on the bottom of it.
