Tensho by MOF – Japanese Specialty Tendon Opens in The Centrepoint
Tendon (天丼) is a type of donburi where crispy tempura is laid over freshly steamed rice and topped with a delicious light soy dressing. A few factors affect its quality, from the rice, freshness of the ingredients, batter to the taste of the soy dressing.
Tensho (天勝), Japanese Specialty Tendon, serves fresh and crispy tempura with rice at The Centrepoint. Opened by Ministry of Food, they currently only have two items on the menu – Mixed Tendon ($14.90) or Vege Tendon ($13.90).
Crispy crunchy tempura on rice is simply delicious, and you really got to eat it hot to enjoy the freshness and crispiness. The Mixed Tendon comes with prawns, dory fish, onsen egg and vegetables served on Japanese rice, chawanmushi and miso soup. The batter is crispy but fluffy, and the sauce offers a good balance of sweet and salty. Remember to break the soft boiled egg and coat the tempura and rice with it.
Vege Tendon features onsen egg and vegetables on Japanese rice, served with chawanmushi and miso soup. Tempura is not only about prawns, the crunchy vegetables like pumpkin works well too. When I first had the chawanmushi, I was kinda blown away already because it is sooooooo SMOOTH! Oh mine! The prawns and dory fish are fried upon order. You can self help pickles on the table.
Opening special! for a limited period only, enjoy a free drink with any tendon order!
