One of the best things about Japanese food is that, in addition to being tasty, it can also be extremely healthy. Even if you are committed to a healthy eating lifestyle or are watching your caloric intake, teppanyaki can still be on the menu. There are plenty of healthy sides you can choose to supplement your Japanese dining experience and make your meal even more enjoyable.
A popular Japanese side dish and appetizer that is also a healthy choice is edamame. These young soybeans in their pods are often boiled and served simply with salt for a tasty, protein-packed treat. Ahi tuna is also popular on Japanese menus and is typically served lightly seared, letting the rich flavor shine. Soups and salads are also commonly ordered as side dishes with teppanyaki meals.
