Beyond Sushi: 5 Places worth visiting for Authentic Japanese Cuisine

When thinking about Japanese cuisine, the first delicacy that comes to mind is sushi. And that is comprehensible, thanks to its introduction to the rest of the world in the late 1800s. It quickly caught fire and became popular in most of the world to give way to the various westernised styles of sushi we know today. In fact it has gained so much popularity in today’s age that it is easy to define Japanese cuisine as a comprehensive amalgamation of sticky rice, raw fish or meat, and seaweed.

But as proponents and enthusiasts of Japanese culture and cuisine, as well as the Japanese themselves will tell you… there is so much more. In fact, Japanese cuisine offers much more than teriyaki and tempura too. As those are usually our second and third go-to.

So from tasty Okonomiyaki to the best Yakitori and Udon or Soba noodles which are must haves, I present to you authentic Japanese cuisine and the best places to experience it in Delhi.
