National Tempura Day  will be Celebrated at Yummi Japanese Restaurant

Local San Antonio sushi spot, Yummi Japanese Restaurant, will celebrate National Tempura Day with a featured tempura menu at their two locations on Sunday, January 7, 2017.


Tempura originated as a Portuguese dish, but was popularized in the 17th century near the Tokyo Bay area of Japan. As the Yatai, or food cart, gained popularity among the culture, so did the lightly battered fare. Food cart owners would take the fresh seafood from the bay and vegetables, cover them in flour, eggs and cold water. The cold water reduced the dough-like stickiness of typical batter, and resulted in the crispy texture, which is now characteristic of most tempura.


The restaurant’s owner, Chef Deukbok Cha, has prepared a special menu with several of their popular tempura dishes including appetizers, entrees and sushi. Please find the full menu with descriptions below.
