Yesterday, I had a crap day of work, as is commonly the case, so I wanted to go out for lunch to get my mind off it. We wanted to try something new and, as luck with have it, Sam found 天丼 (tendon), a tempura place near us. We actually haven’t been to a tempura place since we moved to Japan, so this was a first. When we walked in, the sweet notes of jazz ushered us to our seats, while we ordered from a nice, older Japanese man.
Sam doesn’t like seafood much, so he liked the sound of this place because they offered a bowl of vegetable tempura. As for me, I went for the house bowl of assorted tempura, which included a soft-boiled egg, some squid, green pepper, sweet potato, shrimp, and some sort of fish, which I can’t remember what is was called. As for Sam, he had a mushroom (i ate it since he hates mushrooms), some eggplant, a sweet potato, a green pepper, and some shredded carrot.
Take a look:
My bowl, probably because of the seafood, also had some bits of lemon or yuzu peel. It gave it a really refreshing flavor. In conclusion, this was amazing. I want more right now.
