From Ginban Asian Bistro: "Ginban Asian Bistro is a cutting-edge restaurant, serving contemporary Japanese cuisine. Chef Lisan, who is also the owner, grew up in Tokyo, Japan. He received his practical training in sushi and traditional cuisine in Tokyo. Chef Lisan arrived in New York almost twenty years ago and worked in famous Japanese restaurants in New York City such as Nobu Restaurant, Morimoto Restaurant, Sushi Samba and others. His lifelong ambition was rewarded when he opened his own restaurant in Mamaroneck, New York. He is now applying his artful skills to prepare seasonal fares, featuring an ever evolving Oamakase menu.

"Ginban is positioned to meet this new trend by creating dishes that are as simple as they are delicious, with Asian cooking style influences from Japan, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Southeast Asia and abroad.

914-328-5151 
    Click to read review
Asian Temptation is located at 23 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, NY 10601 in Westchester County.

From Asian Temptation: "Often, cuisine is grouped according to region. However, the traditional food associated with a certain particular region is most of the times merely a tiny sampling of the foods popular in that area. Italian food for instance is often thought to be made up of mainly pasta. But southern Italians consume a large assortment of seafood, while their northern counterparts focus on game meat like boar or rabbit. Diluting a region's cuisine into a small selection of dishes is an injustice to the region and culture as a whole.

"Asian food, the encompassing, huge culinary term is the most common source of confusion in regional cuisine. Asia is the world's largest continent, consisting of hundreds of different countries, subcultures and regions. The term Asian cuisine is often considered by most culinary experts as to be too broad. It is therefore important to understand the various differences between Asia's different regional cuisines . . . "

The word is Join the many happy customers at this "amazing place" serving "fabulous sushi, soup, and hot meals" at reasonable prices. Be sure to try the house salad.

Tuxedo Sushi - Health Benefits of Wasabi
Wasabi is a rich source of chemicals known as isothiocyanates. These are the same anti-cancer chemicals found in broccoli and cabbage. These isothiocyanates appear to activate enzymes in the liver which detoxify cancer causing substances before they can do damage to the body. They also appear to interfere with other steps in the formation and metastasis of cancer cells. More importantly, they exert their anti-cancer effects without damaging normal cells.

Japanese Cuisine
Japanese cuisine developed over the past 2000 years. Both China and Korea strongly influenced the cuisine of Japan. One of the major influences was the introduction of rice from Korea around 400 B.C. and within a hundred years it had become the staple food of Japan. Korea's rice growing techniques were passed on to the Japanese during the Yayoi period, as migrating tribes settled in Japan. Rice later came to be used not only for eating, but also to make paper, wine, fuel, building materials and so on. Following the introduction of rice, soy beans and wheat were introduced from China. These two ingredients became an integral part of Japanese cooking. Tea, chopsticks and a number of other important food related items were also introduced from China.

Japanese cuisine is considered by many to be a healthy food choice. Sashimi (raw fish), sushi, tempura, tofu, are all considered both tasty and healthy cuisines. In addition to fish, rice is a staple of the Japanese diet. Japanese cuisine is considered to be typically low in cholesterol, fat, and calories, and high in fiber.

Japanese History and Topology
Japan is comprised of four large islands and thousands of smaller ones. The volcanic and mountainous terrain boasts lush forests and heavy rainfall, much of it from monsoons. The scarce farm land is used predominantly for rice and fish plays a major dietary role in Japanese cuisine.

    Japanese Food - Time Line
    In the third century BC, Korea's already developed rice growing techniques were passed to the Japanese by the Yayoi, a migrating tribe that settled in Japan. Rice came to be used for more than eating, including paper, fuel, wine, building materials and animal feed.

    During the 6th century, Buddhism became the official religion of Japan. During this period, eating meat and fish were prohibited. The first recorded decree prohibiting the eating of cattle, horses, dogs, monkeys, and chickens was issued by Emperor Temmu. Based on the Buddhist prohibition of killing, these prohibitions continued into the eight and ninth centuries. The number of prohibited meats increased to the point that all mammals were included except whales, which were categorized as fish.

    Origin of Sushi and Sashimi
    The origin of sushi is not Japanese. It is believed that sushi was introduced into Japan in the 7th century from China. People began making sushi to preserve fish by fermentation. Since salt and rice were needed in order to ferment fish, sushi became identified with rice in Japan. As methods of preserving fish became popular, sushi originated as a means of preserving fish by fermenting it in boiled rice. Fish that are salted and placed in rice are preserved by lactic acid fermentation, which prevents proliferation of the bacteria that bring about putrefaction. This older type of sushi is still produced in the areas surrounding Lake Biwa in western Japan, and similar types are also known in Korea, southwestern China, and Southeast Asia.

    The Chinese also contributed soy sauce, tea and chopsticks. Other influences arrived in Japan via Korea, including Buddhism, which, despite the pre-existing Shinto and Confucian religions, became the official religion in the sixth century. For the next 1200 years, meat was officially forbidden to the Japanese people,

    As time passed, the taboo against the consumption of meat further developed when the Japanese indigenous religion, Shinto, also adopted a philosophy similar to that of the Buddhists. However, the eating of meat was not totally banned. Professional hunters in mountain regions ate game (especially deer and wild boar) and it was not uncommon for hunted bird meat to be consumed.

    A lack of animal breeding for meat kept its consumption very low. During the fifteenth century the tradition of eating both the meat and eggs of domestic fowl was revived. Fowls, until then, had been regarded in Shinto as God's sacred messengers and were reared to announce the dawn rather than as a mere food resource. The lack of meat products also minimized spice utilization. Pepper and cloves were known from the eighth century and were imported either via China or directly from Southeast Asia, and garlic was also grown on a small scale. But these spices were used mainly to make medicines and cosmetics.

    In the sixteenth century the Portuguese, followed by the Dutch, entered trade with Japan. Western influences such as fried foods were introduced into Japanese cuisine, resulting in dishes such as breaded, fried tempura. Tobacco, sugar and corn were also brought to Japan.

    From approximately 1600 to 1868, Japan's experienced a period of isolationism during which Japan's culture became even more deeply rooted. The main religions of Buddhism and Shinto emphasize the seasons and this came to be reflected in the foods served. Because of Buddhism, meals feature five flavors and colors, respectively being: sweet, spicy, salty, bitter and sour; and yellow, black, white, green, and red.

    In 1854, Japan once again began trade with the West and soon a new Japanese ruling order took power. An interesting point is that the new Emperor Meiji planned a New Year's feast in 1872 designed to embrace the Western world. This New Year's Feast incorporated European cuisine tastes, and for the first time in over a thousand years, meat was served in public.


Japanese Seating and Customs
In Japan, some restaurants and private houses are furnished with low Japanese style tables and cushions on the floor. It is not uncommon in private households and in certain restaurants to share several dishes of food at the table rather than serving each person their own individual dish. In such a case, you are supposed to move some food from the shared plates onto your own plate by yourself, using the opposite end of your chopsticks (if you have used them already) or with special chopsticks that may be provided for that purpose.

Japanese Table Manners

  • Chopsticks should be used properly.


  • Empty your dishes to the last grain of rice.


  • Unlike in some other parts of East Asia, it is considered bad manner to burp.


  • After you have finished eating, place your dishes the way they were at the start of the meal. This includes replacing the lid of dishes which came with a lid and replacing your chopsticks on the chopstick holder or into their paper slip.


  • When drinking alcoholic beverages, it is a Japanese custom to serve each other, rather than pouring the beverage into one's own glass. You should periodically check the cups of your dining companions and serve them once their cups are getting empty. If someone wants to serve you more alcohol, quickly empty your glass and hold it towards that person.


  • It is considered bad manners to become drunk in formal restaurants. However, as long as you are not annoying other guests, it is acceptable to drink larger quantities in more casual restaurants.


  • Do not start drinking until everybody at the table is served and the glasses are raised for a drinking salute, which usually is "kampai".


  • When eating rice, hold the rice bowl in one hand and the chopsticks in the other and lift it towards your mouth while eating. Do not pour soy sauce over white, cooked rice.


  • When eating sushi, pour soy sauce into the small plate provided. It is considered bad manners to waste soy sauce, so try not to pour more sauce into your plate than you will use.


  • You do not need to add wasabi into your soy sauce, because the sushi pieces usually already contain wasabi, and some sushi pieces are supposed to be eaten without wasabi. If you choose to add wasabi, nonetheless, use only a small amount, in order not to offend the sushi chef. If you do not like wasabi, you can request that none is added into your sushi.


  • In general, you are supposed to eat a sushi piece in one bite. Attempts to separate a piece into two, most often end in the destruction of the beautifully prepared sushi. Hands or chopsticks can be used to eat sushi.


  • When eating nigiri-zushi, dip the piece into the soy sauce upside-down with the fish part ahead. A few kinds of nigiri-zushi, for example, marinated pieces, should not be dipped into soy sauce.


  • In the case of gunkan-zushi, pour a small amount of soy sauce over it, rather than dipping it into the sauce.


  • When eating sashimi, place some soy sauce into a small plate. Put some wasabi on the sashimi piece, but do not use too much wasabi as this would overpower the taste of the raw fish and possibly offend the chef. Use the sauce for dipping the sashimi pieces. Some types of sashimi are enjoyed with ground ginger rather than wasabi.


  • When eating miso or clear soup, drink the soup out of the bowl as if it were a cup, and fish out the solid food pieces with your chopsticks.


  • When eating noodles, lead the noodles with your chopsticks step by step into your mouth, while sucking them in with a controlled slurping sound. Try to copy the slurping sound of people around you.


  • When eating noodle soup, keep the distance between the bowl and your mouth small in order to avoid splashing. If a ceramic spoon is provided, use it to drink the soup, otherwise, lift the bowl to your mouth in order to drink the soup.


  • When eating dishes in which the rice is mixed with a sauce, such as Japanese style curry rice and some domburi dishes, it may be difficult to eat with chopsticks and are often eaten with large spoons rather than chopsticks.


  • When eating large pieces of food such as a prawn, tempura or tofu, you may separate the piece with your chopsticks, or you may bite off a piece and put the rest back onto your plate.




  • Chopstick Etiquette

  • Hold your chopsticks towards their end, and not in the middle or the front third.
  • When you are not using your chopsticks and/or finished eating, lay them down in front of you with the tip to left.
  • Do not spear food with your chopsticks.
  • Do not point with your chopsticks to something or somebody.
  • Do not move your chopsticks around in the air and don't play with them.
  • Do not move around plates or bowls with chopsticks.
  • If you've already used your chopsticks, use the opposite end to move food from a shared plate to your own plate.
  • Do not stick chopsticks into your food, especially rice. At funerals, chopsticks are stuck into the rice that is put onto the altar.
  • Do not pass food with your chopsticks directly to somebody else's chopsticks. At funerals, chopsticks are used to pass bones of the cremated body from person to person.

  • Sashimi
    Sashimi is a Japanese dish of bite-sized pieces of raw fish eaten with soy sauce and horseradish paste (wasabi). Sashimi is just the thinly sliced fresh fish without the vinegar rice used in sushi.

    Sushi
    Sushi is a type of Japanese food with over a thousand years of history and tradition. Outside of Japan, sushi has become one of the most visible examples of Japanese cuisine. The common ingredient in sushi is rice. Traditionally, sushi is made with a white, short-grained, sweet rice mixed with a dressing made of rice vinegar, sugar, salt, konbu, and sake. It is cooled to body temperature before being used. In Japan, sushi is made with Japonica rice, known for its stickiness.

    The vegetable wrappers used in maki and temake are called nori. Nori is an edible seaweed traditionally cultivated in Japan. Originally, the plant was scraped from dock pilins, rolled out into sheets, and dried in the sun. Nori is toasted before being used in food.

    For both health reasons and aesthetics, fish eaten raw must be fresher and of higher quality than cooked fish. Professional sushi chefs are trained to recognize quality fish that can be used in sushi. Only ocean fish are used in raw sushi since they can be free of harmful parasites.

    In summary, sushi is made of cooked rice dressed with vinegar that is shaped into bite-sized pieces and topped with raw or cooked fish or formed into a roll with fish, egg or vegetables, and wrapped in seaweed or stuffed in a small tofu pouch.

    Sushi rice is often seasoned with sweet rice-wine vinegar. Although raw fish is the most popular ingredient in sushi, the main element of sushi is Japanese sticky rice. There are many kinds of sushi, which don't include raw fish. Sushi can be prepared with cooked fish, shellfish, and various other ingredients such as vegetables. Cucumbers, pickled daikon radish, fermented soybeans, tofu, and avocado are among the vegetables used in sushi.

    Sushi is low in fat and can be nutritious. Sushi often contains fish which is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Seaweed, another ingredient in sushi, is rich in iodine and rice is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates.

    Sushi Condiments
    The important seasonings are soy sauce, and Wasabi (Japanese horseradish). Soy sauce is used as dipping sauce. Wasabi is put in Nigiri-zushi or is mixed with soy sauce for dipping. The most important side ingredient of sushi is ginger. Pickled ginger is called gari and is served with sushi. Gari is eaten between bites of sushi to refresh the mouth for each new taste. You can purchase pickled ginger at Asian markets or you can make it yourself.

    Sushi Restaurants
    In "fine upscale" sushi restaurants, sushi is very expensive since the best ingredients are selected. A less expensive alternative are places called kaiten-zushi, where the sushi plates circle around the eating area on a conveyor belt. This is a kind of sushi "fast-food" restaurant in Japan and is inexpensive. It's very popular in Japan, so you can find kaiten-zushi restaurants everywhere.

    When you go to kaiten-zushi, you wait until your favorite sushi comes near you, then you pick up the plates from the moving table. If your favorite is not moving on the table, you can order it. The type of plate the sushi pieces are on will indicate the price of each sushi. If you want to save money, you can avoid picking up expensive sushi.

    Did you Know this About Sushi?
    Sushi Fresh From the Deep . . . the Deep Freeze

    "To many food lovers, sushi has become a near religion, and a cornerstone of the faith is that the fish is extraordinarily fresh. Its priests are chefs with seemingly mystical abilities to summon fresh fish from all corners of the globe.

    "But because of health concerns and growing demand, 50 to 60 percent of sushi in the United States is frozen at some point in its journey from the ocean, according to wholesalers. And rare is the sushi restaurant that tells customers upfront that they may be eating fish that has been in deep freeze for up to two years.

    "Most would be even more surprised to learn that if the sushi has not been frozen, it is illegal to serve it in the United States.

    "Food and Drug Administration regulations stipulate that fish to be eaten raw -- whether as sushi, sashimi, seviche, or tartare -- must be frozen first, to kill parasites. ''I would desperately hope that all the sushi we eat is frozen,'' said George Hoskin, a director of the agency's Office of Seafood. Tuna, a deep-sea fish with exceptionally clean flesh, is the only exception to the rule."
