Sushi rice stands as the cornerstone of quality sushi. No matter how meticulously one procures and prepares seafood, if the rice is subpar, the integrity of the sushi is compromised. With years in the industry and extensive research, I've come to recognize the unparalleled value of using superior rice. It is with pride that we serve sushi rice sourced from a dedicated small farmer in Gero City, Gifu, Japan. Our chosen rice, known as "Inochi No Ichi" from the esteemed brand Ryu no Hitomi, or "Dragon Pupil", is cultivated in Japan's distinct four-season climate. This rice not only meets our stringent standards but is also free of agricultural chemicals and organic that is grown in Japan, freshly polished in New York.
In comparison to other renowned varieties, such as the well-known Koshihikari, our rice boasts grains 1.5 times larger. When cooked, it offers a rich sweetness, excellent stickiness, and a potent aroma, culminating in a unique taste experience. This rice is not only limited in supply but has also been awarded numerous Grand Prix gold medals in Japan."
