Why is Japanese food so special?
Tradition: The Japanese believe in creating food according to the season. They use the ingredients that are ripe and prime in the current season in which they are cooking. In addition, they also like the season they are cooking in to reflect in the plating of their dishes. For this reason, they use inedible tree branches or leaves to present diners with a symbol of the season. That will make you mainly enjoy food with two senses: Taste and sight.
Healthy balance: The protein that is used in a majority of dishes is fish. For this reason, their diet lacks in meat and subsequently oil and dairy. Diet also includes the use of soy sauce, miso and umeboshi. And, traditional Japanese dishes are elaborated with specific flavoring made up of a combination of Japanese spices and are typically shown in foods that have been grilled or braised; resulting in a healthy and tasteful experience.
Fresh ingredients: Fresh ingredients to elaborate top quality sushi. Sushi is a key player in Japanese cuisine. A sushi chef traditionally trains for ten years before serving Japanese food in the restaurant. They learn to learn the importance of the use of fresh fish, and other ingredients, and that the blade of their sushi knives must be re-sharpened on a daily basis.
With the understanding of the importance of seasonality and plating and the heavy use of fish in Japanese cooking, rest assured that you will enjoy flavorful and delicious Japanese traditional dishes at Sakura Hibachi & Sushi.
