New at Maido is Japanese-grown Kinuhikari Rice! Kinuhikari rice is one of Japan’s top high-end rice varieties, made from a cross-breed with the ever-popular koshihikari rice cultivar. This premium short-grain white rice has an amazing taste and texture when cooked-- slightly less sticky than koshihikari, but still plentifully sweet. Kinuhikari rice makes an excellent companion for dishes such as fried rice, curry rice, and kamameshi. Additionally, the somewhat firmer grains of kinuhikari rice means that it retains its texture when kept overnight-- a property that makes it ideal for onigiri. Be sure to grab a bag of kinuhikari rice on your next trip to Maido for groceries and other essentials!
