Like others, Japanese culture has its own traditions and dining style methods that you must learn to fully enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine. From learning Japanese table manners to knowing how you can season and flavor certain types of Japanese meals, this article will help you enjoy authentic Japanese food to the fullest. 

  • Hunger strikes as you sit down to eat and read through all of the options in the menu. So when you sit down, order a glass of water or a cup of hot green tea. 
  • For healthy eating, choose a salad as the first course. You may pick cucumber salad, seaweed salad, or a simple house salad. Moreover, many meal combinations include miso soup and a small quantity of salad which is a low-calorie option. 
  • Though you may be sometimes allowed to use a spoon when eating specific types of meals, it is a good habit to use chopsticks for eating Japanese dishes. You must place your chopsticks on the table with their tips pointed to the left if you want to set them down during or after having your meal. 
  • Separate large chunks of food with chopsticks. By avoiding the extras, you can quickly increase the calories of your food. You can easily tear the food apart by inserting pressure on the chopsticks. When you eat food with chopsticks, it slows down your eating and reduces the chances of overeating.
  • Use a little amount of soy sauce and wasabi to avoid overpowering the flavor of Japanese food. You can pump up the flavor with mustard dip, ginger or chili sauce. Even a low sodium soy sauce contain sodium content which may affect blood pressure. 
  • Choose food items with lean protein and vegetables such as fresh sushi. Sushi is intentionally cooked and presented in a manner that can be eaten in one bite. You can eat raw sushi or pick grilled fish and add a lot of vegetables on the plate by ordering an extra side of them.

A good table manner in Japanese culture is to finish all the food that has been served to your plate. Eat healthy cuisines by visiting an authentic Japanese restaurant in West Bloomfield
