Five Popular Japanese Snacks For Drinking

- Sep 04, 2017 -

An often overlooked part of a typical Japanese meal is the half hour or hour portion of the beginning of the meal when beer or alcohol is first served. During this time, alcohol is served with small snacks, also known as "otsumami", in Japanese.


1.    Tsukemono

During a meal, Tsukemono cleanses the palate and provides refreshment to counter the other flavorful dishes. It also offers color, texture and fragrance to meal.


2.    Edamame

Edamame is the best snack for drinking beer. If you don’t know about edamame, it means boiled soybeans in Japanese. I really recommend you to eat it when you drink beers at your home, and etc.


3.    Salted Squid

Salted squid is best combination with Japanese Sake. Maybe it looks not very good but you will want to eat again after having it.


4.    Teppanyaki

Teppanyakiis a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The world teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate, including steak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and monjayaki.


5.    Tempura

The ingredients of tempura usually include seafood and vegetables. The seafood is usually shrimp or white fish. Vegetables commonly used include onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, shiitake mushrooms, kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), green peppers and carrots. You’ll also find a round fritter of mixed vegetables and seafood called kaki-age.
