Fun and Festive Appetizers to Start Your Meal Off Right

Last updated 5 years ago

Dining at Kabuki Japanese Restaurant is always a fun experience and an opportunity for large groups of diners to indulge in some tasty, exotic cuisine. When you do dine with a bigger party, don’t skip on the appetizers, because they make the perfect ice breaker for an evening of fun. Go ahead and order a round of your favorite cocktails to pair with starters such as these tantalizing choices:

  • Soft Shell Crab

The unique texture of soft shell crab is absolutely perfect when the crab is deep fried in tempura batter. Each bite is slightly crunchy and sweet, and the delicate flavor is only made better with salty, tangy Ponzu sauce made from citrus juice, mirin, and soy sauce.

  • Gyoza Dumplings

More commonly known as pot stickers, these traditional dumplings are a savory delight perfect for even the most finicky diners. They are made from tender wonton wrappers filled with tender beef and vegetables, which are lightly fried to perfection.

  • Garlic Edamame

If you plan on dining on sushi, edamame is a must-have appetizer for the table. It is a simple dish of young soy beans sautéed with garlic and course sea salt, which highlights the nutty sweetness of the beans. Not only is it a delicious option, but it is also incredibly healthy.

  • Lobster Dynamite

For true decadence from the start of your meal, this one-of-a-kind dish is worth a try. The dish starts with a succulent, sweet lobster tail seasoned with soy sauce, sake, and avocado. The lobster is baked and served with creamy, zesty Kabuki mayo sauce.
