Selection of salads
Enjoying Japanese food is part of a healthy relationship with food. Japanese cuisine is characterised by its quality, freshness and high vitamin and mineral content. Far from being confined to its country of origin, Japanese food is becoming more and more popular all over the world. Although the traditional sushi stands out above all.
However, there are lesser-known dishes that are also part of Japanese cuisine, such as edamame, light bean sprouts that are served boiled as a starter. The same is true of salads. These dishes are also on the menu at sushi restaurants and are healthier options.
Discover the most famous seaweed salad in Monster Sushi
In Monster Sushi's menu you can find several fresh and healthy options to accompany your Japanese food order. The most traditional food is called kaiseki, which is born from the traditional tea ceremony and in which the elegant presentation of each dish is crucial. There is a set order of usually 8 to 10 dishes: Appetizers, light soup, sashimi or raw fish slices, grilled food, steamed food, boiled food, salad, pickled food, rice, and finally tea.
Salads occupy the eighth course of a kaiseki, with seaweed salads being the most common in Japan. These foods are rich in fiber, calcium, iron, and many vitamins, and are fat-free. They also deeply cleanse the body, easily eliminate toxins, and prevent premature aging, as they are great antioxidants.
We recommend you try our wakame salad, an explosion of colour, flavour and texture! In Japan, they describe its flavour with the word umami, which means delicious flavour. This seaweed salad is an excellent source of hydration due to its antioxidant properties.
The freshest salad of Monster Sushi
Salads are a world of possibilities to combine with fruits. They admit all kinds of ingredients. Among them, of course, fruits: an ideal option to get an extra shot of vitamins and flavor.
We love mango salad. Not only for its fresh and healthy ingredients but because it is so complete that with it on a hot day, when we are usually less hungry, it would almost be a unique dish. Composed of a green bed, mango and sautéed chicken, accompanied by cherry tomatoes, bean sprouts and sesame seeds, and dressed with honey and mustard.
This mango and chicken salad is one of those great options to enjoy anywhere. The freshness of the mango with the saltiness of the chicken and the smoothness of the honey mustard dressing makes this dish sensational.
In a Japanese restaurant it seems normal to find avocado in sushi or salads. But this was not always the case. The use of avocado in Japanese cuisine is relatively recent, especially when compared to its long history. Nowadays, with Japanese cuisine adapted to Western palates, it is very common to find avocado in dishes.
If you are in love with this fruit, you should not leave Monster Sushi without trying our Japanese salad. A salad of avocado, greens, cherry tomatoes, bean sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, seaweed, tofu, sesame and Japanese dressing.
Mushrooms with avocado are an amazing combination of flavors, textures and taste. We are going to mix natural ingredients to bring to the table a first course or starter that will become a staple. The mix of these named ingredients will result in a healthy and delicious dish. Take note and add it to your order.
