This Japanese cooking style, which involves veggies, shrimp, and other seafood lightly battered then fried, is a good place to start if you're intimidated by Japanese food. So since today is National Tempura Day, I thought I'd test your knowledge of this crispy, salty delight. Find out how much you know about tempura.

Mmm...I love tempura! The sweet potato tempura is my favorite. I think frying veggies cancels out the fatty and oily aspect of tempura. lol. Let me be in denial...

4/5. I like tempura with udon or soba. I don't usually order them because it's so bad for you.

I love the veggies tempura style. My co-workers and I order Japanese food twice a month--we love it. My faves are the spicy tuna, smoked salmon, yellowtail, and most recently i tried the eel and it's pretty good.

I really love Japanese food, but I'm not big on tempura. I don't like fried foods really.
