The traditional cuisine of Japan is based on rice and miso soup, along with other dishes emphasizing seasonal ingredients. Tempura, consisting of seafood and vegetables deep-fried in a light batter, is also typical fare. Seafood is common, grilled or served raw as sashimi or sushi, and this is where Annapolis shines in terms of Japanese cuisine. There is no finer region in the United States for delicious seafood than the Mid-Atlantic, specifically the Chesapeake Bay.
The Annapolis area has some of the finest Japanese restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic Region. If you love Japanese cuisine, Maryland’s historic capital is the place to visit. According to TripAdvisor, below are Numbers 10 to 6 of the Top 10 Japanese Restaurants of Annapolis.
