What Makes Great Sushi?

3 min read

Sushi looks very easy at first glance. You only need rice, raw fish, and toppings. But that’s not all. It is an art form, if you take a closer look at sushi. This is what sushi chefs are skilled at and dedicate their lives to learning. Although the ingredients might seem straightforward, it is important to take into consideration every aspect of each ingredient. When making sushi, chefs pay attention to every detail.

Rice is all you need. Sushi is actually a combination of rice, vinegar, and raw fish. Western culture often views rice as a staple starchy food that can’t be altered and doesn’t require too much attention during cooking. In Japanese culture, this is not the case. Rice and its preparation are highly prized. Rice must be well-textured and sticky in order to make sushi. If you try to lift the rice into your mouth, it will break down.

Rice should not be too dense or sticky. The rice will easily fall apart once you eat the sushi. You can achieve this perfect consistency by carefully rolling the sushi and preparing the rice. Mastering the art of making the outer layer more dense than the inner takes years of practice.


Japan is an island in the middle of one of the world’s most abundant oceans, so it offers many fish-centric dishes. Sushi is the most well-known and delicious example of Japan’s love for this protein.

It is easy to overlook the care and thought that goes into making sushi. Sushi Inc. is an excellent example of high-quality, fresh fish. To achieve the best texture and tenderness, it is properly aged. We ensure that the cut is perfect. Depending on the species of fish, salt and vinegar can be used as a way to reduce the moisture. This produces a bright, beautiful piece of fish.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. To prepare delicious sushi is an art form. Sushi Inc. is where you should go if your goal is to have the best sushi in St. Petersburg. Our extensive menu includes authentic Japanese food and beverages.
