Today I would like to show my friend the best tempura in town. So I bring them to Tenkai at Sheung Wan Aberdeen road.it is only twelve at noon, the shop is queue up with number of people, unbelievable!
They provided Premium lunch set for Weekend -Four types of tempura lunch , including tenkai Ten-Don set, tempura lunch sets and tempura lunch special set, Ranges from $180-$300. The major difference between those lunch set is the number of tempura pieces served.
Today I encores the Tempura lunch special set $300, 9 pieces of Japanese authentic tempura .
The whole set comes with: Shrimp, sea urchin, white fish, conger eel, tenkai egg, Sakura shrimp and veggies (Includes soup , two appetizers and two free rice. )
The weather is so hot today, and The iced green tea comes in the right moment ! It is from Shizuoka, the taste is so mild and smooth, with the cold ice, what a delightful healthy drink in summer.
All the tempura is so good! Perfectly done! I can’t find any one of them I don’t like. It is Served piece by piece. And All the seafood is freshly imported from Tsukuji market in japan!
All The appetizers is quite tasty and the soup is light and refreshing.
First dish is shrimp tempura and white fish. Though the shrimp is not huge, but The shrimp is so fresh and the shrimp head is so crispy! Like it! The white fish is coated with a thin layer of batter, crispy outside and very soft inside, with light fish flavor.
Now here comes a slightly stronger flavor - The conger eel . The eel got stronger taste and it is a bit firmer than the fish.
The vegetable tempura is very nice too. This time I drip the veggies with salt Instead of tempura sauce. The apparatus is really tender and juicy, the lotus seed root is crisp and crunchy, and pumpkin tempura is so soft and sweet. Everyone of them got diverse texture and taste.
And then here comes the highlight of the meal: sea urchin! The sea urchin tempura is so so sweet!! It is so creamy and soft , contrasting with a thin layer of batter, almost melts in my mouth completely! Love it!! .
I also enjoy the tenkai egg a lot! That’s the other highlight of the meal. Not many restaurants do the tempura eggs, while this requires high level of skills. The tenkai egg is semi cooked, covered with extra thin layer of batter. I cut the egg into half, the orangey egg yolk just flows onto the rice. Mix it together with a bit of wasabi and tenkai sweet soy sauce , it is so creamy and rich. A bit creaminess, a bit of wasabi spiciness and a bit sweetness of the tenkai soy sauce. what a simple heavenly flavor!
The Sakura shrimps tempura is the third and last highlight of the meal. The shrimps are so tiny , but with really strong shrimp flavor! Mix it together with the broth, seaweed and white rice, it becomes chazuke. The soup is so clear and smooth, with a hint of seafood taste, together with soften Sakura shrimps and seaweed, it is umami, tasty and moist, also a perfect ending for the seafood tempura meal.
All of us really enjoy the meal. however the pace of serving tempura is too fast. One comes another non-stop. That may be due to lots of customers waiting outside, so the chef have to served the tempura really quick for another round. Anyway, I still enjoy the high quality of tempura here, from the rhythm of light tastes tempura to strong taste tempura. I definitely will come back again for more.
