One of the most baffling questions is: What makes Japanese food so delicious? Some may say it is the combinations; how the rice, meat, and vegetables come together to make a delicious blend of food. We see this combination in our traditional combo meal, but it is also the makeup of sushi. However, the noodle plates are just as delicious, so there must be something that all dishes have in common. Some at Lucky Samurai would say the secret to a Japanese cuisine is their sauce. Taking a look at the sauces available at Lucky Samurai, it is no wonder their food makes so many people come back for more.
Lucky Samurai offers 3 sauces:
What is Teriyaki?
Lucky Samurai makes their teriyaki sauce from scratch. Each teriyaki dish is sautéed with medium heat in their teriyaki sauce to make the sweet flavor pop out of the plate. Teriyaki dishes provide the sweet and salty flavor people in Japan love, and Americans are catching on quick. Teriyaki is traditionally made from soy sauce, sake, and sugar, but Lucky Samurai’s recipe builds on this to make the sauce that people love.
How is Hibachi made?
Hibachi dishes are treated differently than teriyaki, providing an all new experience. Instead of medium heat, hibachi dishes are seared on high heat on the tapenyaki grill. This method calls for soy sauce, and Lucky Samurai adds their own mix of seasonings to complete the mouth-watering grilled flavor customers are used to.
Yakitori with a twist
Yakitori dishes are something that Lucky Samurai has put a lot of thought into. Traditionally, yakitori is a baste used when cooking on a char-grill. Since Lucky Samurai uses a flat grill, they decided to adapt this sauce since it brings an unforgettable flavor. They believe that a Japanese restaurant can’t be without this sauce, so the dish they serve is a love letter to Japanese food eaters everywhere. Providing a balanced flavor, the yakitori dishes are grilled with a blast of smoky flavor with a bold background to it. You will be surprised how much flavor this sauce can pack in one bite.
Which is best?
Depending on your preference, one of the sauces will hold a special place in your heart. However, in order to have the full experience, we urge to try all combinations and flavors these 3 sauces will provide. Each sauce can be used to cook chicken, shrimp, and steak, along with vegetables. It’s up to you to decide which gives the best Japanese flavor.
