meharizushiMeharizushi is a rice ball covered with pickled takana leafe.
"takana" is a variety of the leaf mustard.
Pickled takana (with salt) has a nice flavor.
This is a country dish of kumano rigion(a part of wakayama prefecture and a part of mie prefecture).
But I think it is getting known in kanto area(Tokyo and surround) in these days.
