Any interesting onigiri to be found in LA, Westside-ish?

I don't know why I've never given these to the kids before they fell in love with onigiri at a potluck recently. The ones they liked were very simple and flavored with nori. Any good sources locally?

    Sunny Blue was great.
    Crisp nori, excellent rice wonder-fillings.
    We had
    Tuna Mayo
    Shiso Ume
    Lucky Cat
    Mentaiko

    Excellent!

      It's a fun place...and a good value. Thanks for reporting back.

      And someday, if we are lucky, they'll be in Los Feliz as well!

        Have you been to Sunny Blue http://www.sunnyblueinc.com/ on Main Street? If not you really ought to go.

            I constantly ask myself the same question about places posted here that I've never heard of before.

              +1 on Sunny Blue. Their miso mushroom is fantastic. I usually get one of those and a beef miso as a meal. If they have ebi mayo, I'll get that too. They can wrap the omusubi to go with special nori wrappers enclosed in plastic, but they taste best fresh.
