Japanese life expectancy
The Japanese have the longest life expectancy in the world, averaging 86.44 years for women and 79.59 years for men. Diet is obviously related to health, so there can be no doubt that the food the Japanese have eaten over the years is an important factor promoting their long life spans. The traditional Japanese diet, part of the nation's culture since ancient times, is attracting more and more favourable attention abroad, especially in the West as well as down under. Eating Japanese style is good for the health and provides access to many nutrients that retard cell aging. Thanks to their diet, the Japanese have slowed the aging process more than any other people on earth. Many appear remarkably young for their age, however old they may be.
Japan has the lowest obesity rates in the developed world. The people are living longer than everybody else; they are not just living longest, they are living healthiest thanks to the Japanese food.
Eat healthy and stay happy with Sasanoki!

Donburi, or don in short, which literally means “bowl”, is Japanese rice bowl dish consisting of ingredients served over rice. The beauty of donburi lies in the combination of rice steeped in simmering broth or sauce and the flavour of the toppings.
Rice is a good carbohydrate; Western cuisine uses bread or pastry and we use rice. You will realise how healthy rice is, being low in fat, high in protein, low-calorie and energy-boosting. Be encouraged to eat more rice; it is rich in fibre, which slows absorption and fills you up before you take in too many calories.

This one tastes good even if it’s cold and is our ichiban selling dish.

Originally from China, it is unclear when Ramen was introduced to Japan, but it is definitely one of the Japanese food cultural icons. In Japan, more than 200,000 ramen shops dot the entire country and my daughter never spent a day without a bowl of ramen during her recent trip to Japan. Mind you she is a Kiwi!
We have two styles in soup; miso and shoyu (soy sauce) and the toppings are your choice.
Firstly choose which soup style you would like; either miso or shoyu.
Secondly think about what you want to have with it.
Thirdly enjoy your Ramen!

NIPPON NO CURRY
Japanese curry rocks!! How?
Follow the description by an American journalist based in New York.
“Japanese curry is food in its most perfect form. If you disagree, it is only because you have not eaten it.
I love Japan’s curry in the same way that a heroin addict loves shooting up.
The only significant difference between the two is that eventually, if you stop doing heroin long enough, you are no longer addicted to it. Japanese curry addiction does not leave you even when you move back home. You just spend your days wishing you could eat it again,
saving your money so you can fly back to Tokyo and eat more.”
This is just what we have at Sasanoki, which is a thick medium-hot curry served with short grain white rice called Japonica,
but not as hot as Indian or Thai - simply good Japanese style.
Katsu Curry ‘n’ Rice $13.80
Your choice on crumbed pork, chicken or beef.
Real good stuff, Bro!
Vegetable Curry ‘n’ Rice $10.50

Enjoy the pure natural taste of soybeans in the pod. Bruno’s favourite nibbles or side dish
to go along with cold beer or sake, or by themselves.

Seaweed is not just a weed!
Various forms of seaweed are good source of vitamin C, fibre, potassium and iodine.

fresh vegetables, high in fibre, vitamins and minerals.
