Twelve dollars goes far at Oms/b, the rice ball specialists that New York magazine named Best Japanese Fast Food in 2004. Oms/b's name comes from omusubi, sticky balls of rice ($1.50-$3.25) stuffed with different kinds of meat and sauce, wrapped in seaweed, and delivered to diners via a neon-colored drifting sportscar. Oms/b serves more than 45 types of rice balls, including a California rice ball (crab, cucumber, avocado, and lettuce with vinegar rice), a spicy scallop roll (butter-sautéed scallop with Japanese red pepper), and Hijiki (seaweed and edamame beans mixed with rice, wrapped in yellow soy sheet). Oms/b is a small restaurant, so most diners grab and go, making it the lunch of choice for on-the-go vocations such as spy, marathon spy-cyclist, or spydiver. It's a clean, bright space with friendly staff serving the fresh fish, natural ingredients, and carefully selected white rice, brown rice, and mineral-rich salts.
