Battera Oshizushi from Osaka
This was cool. In contrast to the hand-pressed version of sushi common today, oshizushi is an older Osakan variety made by pressing rice into a wooden rectangular box. The vinegar and strong odor of the fish in this battera that I got tonight may not be appealing to everyone, but I liked it. And the coolest thing about it was that it was only 350 Yen (US$3), wrapped up nicely in layers of clean wrapping paper and available for pick up at various train stations.
