Japan has contributed significantly to the food culture of the United Kingdom and other Western countries over the past few decades. As a result, the UK is one of the countries where the demand for authentic Japanese cuisine has been on the rise. So, Lopen Raj took on the responsibility of satisfying the cravings of South Petherton people for Japanese foods.
Below is a list of some famous Japanese foods you will find on Lopen Raj’s menu.
When we think of Japanese cuisine, one of the first dishes that comes to mind is sushi. Sushi is any dish prepared from Japanese rice seasoned with rice vinegar. At Lopen Raj, you will find different types of Maki Sushi (made by wrapping the ingredients in a sheet of Nori or seaweed) and Nigri Sushi (hand-pressed pats of rice draped with a slice of seafood and a touch of wasabi).
Sashimi differs from sushi in that sashimi is essentially fully made of raw fish and is never served with rice, while all sushi is made with vinegared rice. Here in Lopen Raj, we serve Salmon Sashimi, Tuna Sashimi, and Amaebi Sweet Prawn.
Ramen is a type of noodle soup that includes wheat noodles, often known as “ramen noodles,” savory broth, and different types of toppings.
One of modern Japan’s all-time favorite foods is ramen, which is inexpensive and frequently available in restaurants and ramen bars. You can have both Chicken Ramen and Vegetable Ramen (vegan) in our restaurant.
4. Miso Soup
Miso soup is one of the most frequently and continuously consumed Japanese foods. Miso soup is a typical side dish for Japanese breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. In this soup, typically, the main ingredients are miso paste, tofu, and wakame.
Lopen Raj’s Miso Soup has been winning the heart of South Petherton people.
Edamame are bright green, immature soybeans, which are normally served in the pod after being blanched and lightly salted. Edamame are frequently offered as a starter in bars and restaurants, and it’s the same here in Lopen Raj restaurant too. In our restaurant, we serve regular Edamame and Spicy Edamame.
Tempuras are bits or slices of fish, meat, and/or vegetables that have been deep-fried until crunchy and pale gold. If you enjoy eating crispy fried foods, you must try this Japanese food. You can order delicious Vegetable Tempura, Seafood Tempura, and Prawn Tempura at Lopen Raj. We serve these with tempura sauce.
Gyoza are savory moon-shaped dumplings wrapped in a circular gyoza wrapper and crimped or pleated around the edges. Gyoza are typically made with savory fillings such as vegetables, onion, and chicken.
