It's called calrose rice, which is an extra sticky kind of rice, or so
@mibs: we stopped making the rice outside ones cause they were so fuckin sticky! I had to grease my knife just to cut them without the rice sticking, an that only lasted through three cuts!
I like those ones too, but they seemed to be to much effort. Perhaps with more practice and a straight edge, super shape knife we'll get better and make more!
for the rice, add a little of each: vinegar/rice vinegar, sugar and salt. it wont be as sticky. also, i find putting plastic wrap over the sushi before cutting helps with any more sticking. then after cuts, use the mat to squeeze it back into shape if u have any mishaps with the cuts =]
