Japanese Food: Popular Japanese Dishes (Part2)

Shabushabu

With this dish, paper-thin beef slices are dipped into a pot of stock and boiling water for a couple of seconds and then the cooked beef is dipped into goma dare (sesame sauce) before it is eaten. Vegetables are added later, like shirataki, tofu, Chinese cabbage and enoki mushrooms. When cooked, they are dipped into a citrus and soy sauce (ponzu). Once the vegetables and beef are finished cooking, you can add udon to the both and eat it with broth. There are other flavorings used including daikon, chives and crushed garlic. In Shabushabu restaurants, these all-you-can-eat meals are quite common and affordable for those who have big appetites.

Japanese Food: Popular Japanese Dishes (Part1)

Japanese food

Popular Japanese Food

The Japanese people really love their food. That can be seen by how many people eat out, even during a recession, and all of the food-related programs that are on television. If you tell somebody you are going to be visiting Hokkaido, they will be sure to tell you to try out the seafood while you are visiting, or when you are in Osaka sample the Okonomiyaki. Although in the West, sushi continues to grow in popularity, a majority of Japanese food is still mostly unknown to Westerners. Japanese restaurants all over the world have a tendency to cater their offerings towards Japanese tourists, which means it is also priced fairly expensively. However, in Japan there is a wide range of Japanese food options that are available, and prices ranging from very affordable to having to spend your entire month’s salary.

The Basic Elements of Japanese Food

Japanese Food

The standard Japanese food consists of a carbohydrate like rice or a noodle, a serving of miso soup, as well as a dish of pickled vegetables, and, optionally, a meat or a fish dish. The most common carbohydrate is rice, but many different types of noodles are available, including udon (thick noodles), soba (medium noodles), and ramen (thin noodles). These carbohydrates are all very inexpensive and form the main backbone of the dish. Additionally, fish dishes are very popular parts of meals, because Japan has a long history of fishing and eating different seafoods like many island nations. These seafoods can include many different species of sea creature, such as a huge number of types of fish as well as squid, octopus, shellfish like oysters and mussels, and even eels.

Sushi: A Health Solution From the East

Health Benefits of Sushi

The health benefits of sushi can be pretty amazing, thanks to the fact that it contains very healthy foods, such as pickled ginger, wasabi, rice, and nori seaweed. These foods all are well known to provide enormous health benefits to everybody. Ever since I started eating sushi in my life, I feel much better and healthier. My varicose veins have gone away, and I feel much more attractive and shiny. The word I most commonly use to describe my appearance these days is radiant, because I feel like I am bursting with energy and health from the sun thanks to the fact that I eat sushi at least 3 times a week. Every time after I have a meal of sushi, even if it is a very small meal by calorie standards, I feel completely filled and satisfied. I understand how the people in Japan stay so thin! The reason is that if they eat sushi at every meal, they are filled with nutritious phytol chemicals while eating very few calories, which is a proven method to lose weight and boost your health and well-being.

The health benefits of fish are also quite amazing, although I would stay away from fish if you do not live by a coast. You can still eat tofu sushi which I find quite healthful and fulfilling as well. In any case, fish is just about the healthiest type of meat that is out there, because it is low in harmful compounds and contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which have a protective effect on your heart systems and promote the ability for your body to synthesize compounds that you need, such as your body’s natural hormones and prostaglandins.

My dear wife was having some serious issues with her joints. They were always cracking and popping and she was twisting and straining them very frequently as well as pulling muscles. I recommended that she start with me on the amazing sushi diet that I have been following, and ever since she joined with me in following this diet, she has felt much better and has been able to get in much better shape. We even went hiking a couple weekends ago, which is something we had not been able to do for three or four years. We both feel great now. Of course, we remembered to bring our sushi with us when we went hiking! We brought along a tasty little meal in a refrigerated pouch. I don’t know how that tiny amount of food did it, but it really powered us through a long day of hiking up and down hillsides. I really wish I had started eating sushi every day when I was younger, I am sure that I would be in better health now.

Japanese Sushi As A Boon To Great Health (part 1)

Sushi, A Gift from The Japanese

Prior to examining the true health attributes of sushi, it makes good sense to get a bit of historical context on the topic. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that Japanese people enjoy the second lengthiest lifespan of any other nation, with men able to expect an average of 82 years, and women typically living to the age of 87.2 years. These figures represent a significant upward departure from average lifespans in the rest of the world, which fall at 68.5 years for men, 73.5 year for women. Japanese folks tend to have roughly five more years of life on an average basis than their American cohorts. Those in Japan are noted for having among the very lowest incidences of cardiovascular disease worldwide and one of the lowest incidences of obesity. The question is whether these statistics are the result of genetic luck or whether the composition of a typical Japanese diet plays a much more pivotal role.

Octopus Sushi Nutrition Facts

octopus sushi

The Nutrition of Octopus Sushi

Octopus is a cephalopod mollusk that is sometimes referred to as the Sea Cat in areas such as the West Indies. Overall, there are about 300 different variations of this oceanic cephalopod and it is well known for a delicious and tender texture and the tremendous nutritional value. Octopus sushi is a great source of roughly 12 different minerals and vitamins, which means that in one 3 ounce serving, you are getting more than 10% of your daily value of the essential nutrients that you need to get each day. This is a lean protein source that is low in fat and contains just as much protein as a 3 ounce serving of chicken.

Kind Words

  • No place like it. Everything is delicious. I’ve had sushi all over the country and in Japan (albeit in the airport in Tokyo), but this is the best there is. You won’t find a carousel of sushi here. You’ll get what you pay for, the freshest highest quality fish. The owner, Yong, really takes pride in what he does and he’s a traditionalist.  He takes care in every cut and slice, he’s creative with new rolls that are always incredible. Staff is always friendly and attentive.  This place is the “cheers” of sushi restaurants, everybody knows your name.  This place is the reason I fell in love with sushi and I could eat here every day of the week!

  • I love fuki sushi:) trust me, im Japanese and their sushi is Japanese style. Their sushi is little bit expensive compare to others but they always use fresh never frozen fish.
    This place is small but its so nice and cozy. I had some sushi, oyabun roll, spicy crunch, and salmon yaki. I highly recommend this place!
    Also this place is BYOB!

  • My favorite place in bergen county to go for some amazing sushi! Started with spicy sashimi salad as an appetizer which had a rich spicy taste and even with the seasoning the taste and texture of each sashimi was fully absorbed. Next, we got the chicken teriyaki bento box and i have to say the teriyaki sauce had so much flavor that I wanted just the sauce to take home. The California roll that came in my bento box also was full of more filling than rice that we would have just ordered a bunch of california rolls on their own. Even the miso soup that came with my chicken bento box was full of flavor and not watered down like other miso soups that you normally taste at other places. Now the highlight at our table was the Oyabun roll recommended to us by the server. Now i know i talked alot about flavor but the oyabun roll was a flavor explosion in your mouth. I was not sure if it was even possible to have that many flavors and taste the texture of the roll fillings, but it was done and it was tastefully (pun intended) done. While it is a bit on the pricier side than your typical sushi place it is well worth the money because you will not only go home full but your tastebuds will also go home with a smile. Anyone and everyone who is in town are missing out if you havent gone to fuki sushi.

  • Fuki Sushi exceeded my expectations. The outside of the restaurant had me thinking it wouldn’t be the best dining experience, but the interior is actually very cute. The food was amazing. We ordered edamame which was probably the best I’ve ever had. Then I ordered the Duke roll, which was great. Definitely recommend this place!E.
