When you are in the mood for a taste of Japanese cuisine offered by the delicious menu selections available from Kyoto Palace, warming up with some traditional appetizers is a great way to get your palate prepared for the rest of your meal. Along with sushi and sashimi, we offer a wonderful assortment of starters that are excellent to share with your fellow diners. Below is a sampling of the appetizers you should try on your next visit.
- Soft Shell Crab
The texture of soft shell crab is unlike any other type of shellfish. Because the shells are so thin, they remain on the crab while it is cooked. With a light batter, the crab is deep fried to perfection so the sweet meat inside is wonderfully tender and the shell is crispy and flavorful.
- Fried Tofu
Tofu, which is made from soybeans, is not flavorful on its own. However, when it is fried with a crisp coating, it is highly enjoyable as an appetizer. This dish is served with a flavorful sweet-and-tangy sauce that adds just the right touch of exciting flavor to the excellent texture of the prepared tofu.
These crispy pot stickers are made from tender wonton wrappers wrapped around a mixture of ground pork and vegetables seasoned to perfection. The pot stickers are fried and served alongside a thin dipping sauce for an easy-to-share appetizer the whole table will enjoy.
If teriyaki is your preference, these skewers of sliced chicken in teriyaki sauce will be your new favorite appetizer. Because the chicken is served on skewers, it is easy to eat without the sticky mess of finger foods.
