Traditionally, sushi is served as rice and fish. This means that it is a lean and light meal. In effect you will be eating a meal that is very healthy without having to worry about consuming large amounts of calories.
This is perfect for those who are looking to lose weight but still want to eat their favorite seafood. Not only that, sushi is said to have a beneficial effect on a person’s life expectancy. This could probably be the reason why the people of Japan have one of the highest life expectancies in the world.
Sushi vs Other Seafood
Compared to other seafood, sushi is the better choice with regard to health benefits. It’s served raw, fresh and without being exposed to cooking chemicals and substances like cooking oil, flavoring and salt.
Certain types of sushi provide certain types of health benefits. Sushi is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids which help to protect the heart and improve blood circulation.
Since it is served raw, sushi is best suited for those who are always in a hurry. You don’t have to wait a long time for your seafood to be served. Here at Kyoto Palace, we have a wide variety of sushi that you can choose from and will fit in with your health needs.
Of course, there are concerns about fish being served raw. Since it is raw, poorer quality fish could have parasitic worms living in the fish. We at Kyoto Palace understand the importance of serving not only high quality tasty dishes but safe dishes as well.
That is why we make sure that the ingredients we use are handled properly and hygienically before being served. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priority.
The fish we serve you is parasite and mercury free. We don’t only set a high standard of safety for ourselves, but we impose it on our suppliers as well.
