Su (Vinegar)
An important ingredient in making sushi rice, or shari, the su used by Genki Sushi is especially formulated for Singapore. Taking into account the local weather and humidity, this special blend brings out the right balance of flavours and suits local palates. Its is of the finest quality and is exclusively produced by a fifth generation Japanese vinegar maker, who uses water from Kiso Sansen, or Kiso Three Rivers, the three rivers that make up the alluvial plain of the Nobi Plain in the city of Kaizu, Gifu Prefecture. The vinegar maker also selects the purest sea salt and sugar from the hinterland of central Japan, and uses an age-old method dating back to more than 135 years.
