Japanese Cuisine: The Best Sushi Restaurants in Los Angeles | Black Platinum Gold

The Japanese Cuisine

The Japanese have a high life expectancy, higher than almost anywhere else in the world. The traditional Japanese diet consists primarily of plant-based foods with minimal animal protein and fats while relying on a rich array of seafood from deep-sea fish to soy sauce made from fermented sake yeast extractors (a type known as “koji”). This dietary pattern may provide numerous health benefits, including improved weight loss, increased nutrient absorption rates when consumed raw rather than cooked at high temperatures, longevity and improved health in general.

Takami Sushi & Robata
