Asia Box - Enjoy Asian Delicacies Anywhere

Dim Sum from China, Sushi and Ramen from Japan, Satay from Indonesia, Banh Mi from Vietnam, Tom Yum from Thailand – nowadays, nobody has to travel abroad to enjoy Asian delicacies! Asian restaurants, delivery services, and takeaways are now available everywhere. Because more and more people want to enjoy Asia's diverse cuisine at home or on the go with fresh sushi or aromatic ramen. With chopsticks and the right Asia boxes, aromatic feasting becomes a pleasure!

The Holistic Culinary Culture of Asia

Asian food culture is rich in traditions, flavors, and social customs that make eating a holistic experience. The aspect of community is particularly emphasized during meals. This includes sharing as well as respectful behavior towards the dishes themselves and all those involved in the meal. Instead of ordering individual dishes, several dishes are ordered together so that everyone can try them. This fosters a communal atmosphere and allows everyone present to enjoy a variety of delicacies. Furthermore, in many Asian countries, food is an expression of respect and appreciation. Overall, Asian food culture is characterized by community, diversity, and a respect for food and the people participating in the meal, making eating a enriching and connecting experience.

When people in this country hear about Asia Food, they often think of chopsticks, cooking with a wok, rice, sushi, or noodle Asia boxes. The wok is used for frying, deep-frying, and steaming in Asian cuisine. Separate pans and pots do not need to be used. Those who have their Asia Food boxes or sushi packaging prepared in the restaurant or by the delivery service to go bring a piece of culture into their own four walls with the freshly prepared take away Asia Food from the wok. Asian dishes are characterized by a variety of flavors, including sweet, salty, sour, spicy, and umami, the fifth taste sensation, which translates to 'delicious'. Perfection also plays a big role in Asian cuisine. The most commonly used ingredients include rice, seafood, noodles, poultry, and soybeans in the form of pastes or sauces.

Sushi Box, Noodle Box, Asia Box - the right snack box for Asian Food

Asian cuisine offers many dishes to suit different tastes. Whether it's roasted duck, crispy wontons, spicy curry, or miso soup - there's something for everyone! That's why Asian dishes are among the most popular orders for takeout. When selecting Asia Food Boxes or sushi packaging for delivery services like Lieferando, environmentally friendly criteria for restaurants, caterers, snack bars, and event organizers are becoming increasingly important. Many guests pay attention to the sustainable quality of an Asia Box or the implementation of environmentally conscious practices in the operation when placing their orders. A sustainable storage box for Asian takeout food can therefore have advantageous effects.

Especially practical for noodles with vegetables or classic ramen is a noodle box or snack box made from environmentally friendly material. Sturdy and robust, it allows greasy and hot dishes to be transported safely and securely to their destination, but also allows for snacking on the go. Such a practical Asia Box is also excellent for Asian finger foods such as spring rolls, shrimp chips, or curry balls. Despite all the love for Asian cuisine, sometimes there's leftovers. Tips for appropriate Food Waste Management can be found in our related blog post. Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in everyday life, and more people are paying attention to environmentally friendly products when shopping and avoiding plastic. In our article on Zero Waste, you'll find tips for integrating this concept into your gastronomy business.

Chopsticks - A Feature of Asian Dining Culture

Another characteristic feature of Asian dining culture is the use of chopsticks instead of the ensemble of fork, knife, and spoon known here. In China, people have been eating with chopsticks for more than 3000 years. In the 7th century, chopsticks made their way to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam through missionaries. A knife on the table was seen as a threat, so food was already chopped before serving. Currently, about 1.2 billion people worldwide use chopsticks for eating, compared to only about 900 million using cutlery. Additionally, they are now a practical accompaniment to sushi packaging.

Chopsticks were traditionally made of bamboo and are now often made of wood or metal. However, bamboo remains a popular material due to its durability. Chopsticks made from bamboo are particularly environmentally friendly and completely biodegradable as a natural product. Furthermore, bamboo plants grow very quickly, are stable and robust, and suitable for consuming Asia food. They rest lightly and comfortably in the hand while eating. Also, in our range for take away Asia Food Boxes, we offer chopsticks that can be conveniently included with sushi packaging and the Asia snack box.

Easily mastering chopstick use

Handling chopsticks requires skill and practice. However, using sushi chopsticks proves to be a traditional and effective method for enjoying dishes like sushi, flavorful vegetables, and even rice and ramen in a traditional manner. Here's a brief guide to using chopsticks:

  • Hold: Hold a chopstick between your thumb, index, and middle fingers. The top chopstick is held with the thumb and index finger. The bottom chopstick is fixed between the thumb and middle finger. The bottom chopstick remains fixed.
  • Grasp: Practice grasping food like sushi by gently lifting the top chopstick upwards. This allows you to grip the food.
  • Lift: Lift the food carefully and bring it to your mouth. Pay attention to the firm grip to prevent the food from falling.
  • Practice: Using chopsticks may require some practice. Be patient with yourself; it will improve over time.

Tip: If you offer chopsticks at your establishment, you can provide a guide to interested and inexperienced guests or demonstrate it briefly yourself.

Small Sushi Guide for Asia Boxes

There are countless varieties of sushi. The small portions can be filled into the appropriate sushi packaging depending on their size. This way, you can offer deliciously filled sushi boxes in your food truck, snack bar, or restaurant or give the sushi-filled snack box to your guests as takeout. Traditionally, a proper sushi includes spicy wasabi, soy sauce (shoyu), and pickled ginger (gari), into which the tasty sushi is dipped using bamboo chopsticks. Rice is essential alongside a selection of fish! Here are some popular types of sushi.

  • Futomaki (Thick Roll): Thick rice rolls made from a sheet of nori seaweed filled with seafood and vegetables
  • California Roll: As the name suggests, this sushi variation originates from California. The so-called inside-out rolls have an outer layer of rice, which is rolled in sesame seeds, for example, and filled with fish, seafood, or vegetables.
  • Hosomaki (Thin Roll): Thin rolls made from nori seaweed filled with rice. Inside, there is fish or vegetables.
  • Gunkan Maki (Battleship Sushi): The rolls are hand-formed from nori sheets and filled with fish eggs.
  • Nigiri (Ball Sushi): Rice is hand-shaped into a small ball and topped with seafood or fish.
  • Gyoza (Filled Dumplings): Wheat flour dumplings filled with shrimp, vegetables, or meat and either pan-fried, steamed, or boiled in soups.

Sushi is not only one of the delicacies of Japanese cuisine, but with its aesthetic of grainy rice, vegetables, and fish, it also appeals to the eye. For this reason, the delicious rolls are best kept in a sushi snack box with a viewing window when it comes to presentation at sales stands in supermarkets, cafeterias, or restaurants, or even in a food truck. You can neatly pack the fresh sushi portions in Asia boxes with a viewing window. Whether your customers immediately consume the sushi with chopsticks or take it away – in a sustainable sushi box made of sturdy cardboard, the delicious fish rolls are ready for transport. You can find an Asia box with or without a viewing window in our online shop as well.
