Japanese food today is known for its ramen, sashimi, sushi rolls, and gyoza dumplings. But the cuisine encompasses much more than that. Traditional Japanese food is based on staple items, which is white rice with side dishes and soup. The dishes are cooked more healthily using less oil, with the exception for some deep fried delicacies, such as chicken karaage and ebi tempura.
Arguably the most popular Japanese food item, sushi was first created as a way to preserve fish in fermented rice during the 8th century. It then developed into its own dish of rice seasoned with vinegar, fish, and vegetables. In modern times, you can find all sorts of fillings and ingredients that accompany the rolls to suit every palate.
