Sushi seems very simple at first glance. Rice, raw fish, toppings, and that’s all. But not exactly. If you look closely at sushi, it will be obvious that it is an art form. This is what the world’s most skilled sushi chefs know and they are dedicated to perfecting their art. Even though the ingredients may seem simple, it is essential to consider every aspect of each ingredient. Chefs pay attention to every detail when making sushi.

All it takes is rice. The term sushi is actually a mixture of rice, vinegar and raw fish. Rice is often seen in western culture as a staple starchy food that cannot be altered and doesn’t require much attention during preparation. This is not true in Japanese culture. Rice and its preparation are highly valued. For sushi, rice must be perfectly textured and sticky. It will crumble if you try to lift it up into your mouth.

The tricky part is that rice should not be too sticky or dense. Once you bite into the sushi, the rice will fall apart easily, so you can fully enjoy the experience. This perfect consistency can be achieved by carefully preparing the rice and rolling the sushi. It takes years of practice to master the art of applying the right pressure to make the outer layer denser than the inner.


Japan is an island located in the middle of one of the most abundant seas on the planet, so it naturally offers a wide variety of fish-centric dishes. Sushi is perhaps the most famous and delicious example of Japan’s love for this protein.

The thought and care that goes into sushi preparation is often overlooked. Sushi Inc. is a prime example of fresh and high-quality fish. It is properly aged, then massaged to achieve the best tenderness and texture. We also ensure that the cut is perfect. Salt and vinegar can be used to lower the moisture depending on the fish species. The result is a beautiful, bright piece of fish.
