Celebrate Japanese and other Asian cuisines on National Tempura Day. Tempura is a dish made by battering vegetables, seafood or meats/poultry, then dredging through panko breadcrumbs and deep-frying them. Tempura is a dish the Japanese have made for centuries, but some purport it actually was a dish brought to the Japanese by Portuguese traders. It is a tasty treat to try.
National Tempura Day is a prime opportunity to promote area Japanese restaurants and the Japanese culture. Visit Asian markets, restaurants and more for tie-in opportunities.
