authentically from Asakusa, Tokyo, has set ashore Malaysia land not long ago,
securing a cozy lot at Evolve Concept Mall- one of the latest additions to the
already blooming shopping mall scene in Klang Valley to delight local folks
here with their lavish offering of tempura donburi.
Tendon or more familiarly known as tempura
rice bowl, is actually a casual traditional meal from Samurai Period, where a
bowl of warm rice is topped with assorted, lightly battered fried ingredients
to go along- just like how the taste remains the same since 126 years ago. Akimitsu
Tanihara, under the tutelage of 5 generation took over the flavours and has since made the Dote no Iseya
Tempura restaurant in Asakusa, Tokyo famous and popular around the world.
A basic bowl here starts from MYR 27 for
Squid Tendon and MYR 36 for Regular Tendon with whitebait fish, squid and 2
prawns tempura. And if you feel like a day to reward your palate, then goes for
the Chef Recommended Tendon by all means. Each tendon order comes with miso
soup, Japanese pickles and tea.
CHEF’S SPECIAL TENDON (MYR 67)
It’s chef selection of the day!
It works the same way as Omakase whereby the chef only
chooses the best and freshest ingredients of the day to be laid and served
before you by Japanese chef to preserve the taste and ensure supreme
It consists of a mixture of everything
pleasure from seafood such as conger eel bone cracker, oyster, conger eel, prawns,
to beni shoga pickled ginger and shiitake
Customers can also order ala carte
tempura which also comes with the similar sides as tendon, minus off the rice.
VEGETABLES TEMPURA (MYR 22)
The portion comes with 4 kinds of
vegetables with 2 pieces of each types respectively.
We enjoyed the golden fried okras,
pumpkins Hiratake mushrooms and brinjals which is a bunch of crispy and light
grubs, and thankfully not that oily as well.
Tempura for take away is available too.
Though the bowl might look innocently manageable to the tummy, but trust me, it
can be rather filling- I can’t finish it myself, haha. Undeniably, the meal was
toothsome and we enjoy the heritage from Asakusa.
