Restaurants, Tempura Akasaka

Now run by the second generation of owners, Tenshige is an Akasaka classic. There are two types of tempura bowls available at lunch time, the regular tendon and the kakiage (¥1,300 each), but almost everyone goes for the latter. The simple mixture of prawns and shellfish is wrapped in a fluffy batter with a soft texture, while the yuzu peel on top adds accent to the rich sauce. Don't forget to order the red miso soup (¥100), too.
