What many seem to misunderstand about sushi, however, is that raw fish is not a necessary ingredient mandated by anybody in the Japanese cooking world. Sushi is simply madefrom using shari (しゃり), or sushi rice, and neta (ネタ), the topping. So while that topping can be anything, sushi rice is essentially the core of the dish.

Kura Sushi previously released a curry plate at their restaurants which featured actual sushi rice as opposed to the rice found in ordinary curries.

It has a gentle sweetness and mellowness to the flavor, and also has the added bonus of a healthy image, as amazake contains 9 amino acids not produced by the human body. Using rice and amazake from the oldest brewery in Kyoto, Kura Sushi is hoping that the world's first cola made from rice and vinegar will be a nutritious summer drink when it goes on sale July 29th.
