Tempura is usually eaten as a meal with rice or noodles. However, Asakusa Seisakusho serves it as a snack that you can enjoy on the go while you do some sightseeing in the neighbourhood. The tempura here is flattened by a high-pressure press machine, turning it into a piece of crisp in two minutes. These tempura crisps are made to order, so you’ll get them fresh off the griddle every time.
While the classic shrimp (¥600) tempura is a crowd pleaser, you’ll also find kakiage (a mix of vegetables; ¥500), kabocha pumpkin (¥500) and even a sweet daifuku (¥500) crisp. You can season your crisp with flavoured salt such as yuzu, wasabi and ultra spicy.
