Tendon (tempura over rice) prepared with giant prawns and fried right in front of your seat
This tempura restaurant is located right in the center of Gion. The lunch menu consists of only rice bowls with tempura. The dinner menu provides diners with various courses using an original take on tempura. We would now like to introduce you to the lunch menu. There are a total of four different rice bowls available. Their most famous dish is the "BIG PRAWN TENDON". which has two amazingly large tempura prawns sticking out of the rice bowl. This is one big and hearty meal, with the added fun of watching the chef fry up the tempura right in front of your eyes.
BIG PRAWN TENDON / ¥1,900
Two giant tempura prawns combine with seasonal vegetable tempura on top of rice. The refreshing sauce makes a great combination with the savory fried tempura breading.
SEA EEL TENDON / ¥1,100
This bowl includes 3 pieces of eel tempura with a soft and delicate mouthfeel. Enjoy the taste and aroma of fresh eel.
MIX TENDON / ¥1,700
One giant piece of prawn tempura and two pieces of eel tempura over rice. Highly recommended to people who want to enjoy the delicious flavors of both prawn and eel.
BEER / Small size ¥400 Big size ¥500
A cold beer is the perfect accompaniment for tempura. We recommend eating a piece of tempura along with the beer, then eating the rest of the tempura and white rice. *The picture shows the small size.
How to Order
We recommend the BIG PRAWN TENDON, but those who would like to eat eel as well should order the MIXTENDON. The table includes Japanese pepper, 7 spice powder, as well as green tea powder salt for you to season your dish to your liking.
- Order Tips -
Because it is a very popular restaurant, you may often have to wait in line. You will be asked for your order while you are waiting in line, so it is best to decide on your order quickly.
