I always prefer rice from KOKUHO, it tastes so good and delicious, perfect for Chinese style cooking, fried rice, meat soup, ... etc. The rice is 100 percent California grown and medium grain milled, also fairly clean already in the bag. The bag size is very nice for solo cooking that lasts for a month and yet not too long that the rice gets not as fresh. Love it, and will buy it again! The shipping is so fast btw.
