Tendon

First established in 1887, this tendon (rice bowl topped with tempura) restaurant is a noted dining spot in Asakusa, one of Tokyo’s major areas for eating tendon. They use nothing but sesame oil to cook with, and their tempura is fried perfectly to a wonderful brown color. They have a rich house-made sweet and salty sauce that’s been a mainstay of the restaurant ever since they first opened their doors, and the recipe has been kept the same the whole time.
Their tendon bowls feature a wide variety of toppings and ingredients to enjoy, and their “Prawn Tempura” bowl, a favorite among diners, features 4 massive pieces of prawn tempura served up on a bowl of rice. In addition to their tendon bowls, they also have a large selection of other tempura dishes and a la carte items to enjoy as well.

Highlights

    有日本朋友请我们到这家慕名已久的天妇罗名店用餐。一进店就感觉到一种简约​​又雅致的日本情调。炸大虾盖饭上的大虾都很大个,呈焦黄色,沾了祖传秘方的酱汁后看上去有些味道很浓厚的感觉,但吃到口中的只有芝麻油的清香和大虾的鲜味,一点都不腻。
    混合了虾贝蔬菜和面粉一起炸的炸什锦盖饭也特别好吃!
