Ok I made the sauce (it's for tonights dinner) and I decided to use 1/2 white and 1/2 water and it tastes wonderful. Yeah! Im still picking up some rice when I go shopping next week though.

Thanks Kayelle.
When I was shopping in the Asian market, things are labeled so differently and being my first time there, following a recipe, I wasn't sure I was getting the correct ingredient. I bought rice vinegar figuring the vinegar was what was important. Glad I guessed right!

I go through lots of rice vinegar, too, as I make tons of stir fry and fried rice dishes. I bought some rice wine when I spotted it awhile back but haven't had an opportunity to use it yet. Any good recommendations for rice wine?

As for vinegar substitutes....my absolute favorite is white wine vinegar, and I find it subs very well for rice vinegar. I may like the bite it has more than others though. We also make our food super super spicy.
