When thinking about Japanese cuisine, the first few things that come to mind is either sushi or ramen. But this lesser-known classic Japanese dish, Tendon (Tempura Donburi) is a bowl of freshly made Japanese rice, topped with deep fried tempura meat or vegetables. And one Singapore’s most popular tendon restaurant – Tendon Kohaku, garnering massive queues at all its outlets, just opened its fourth and largest outlet in Chinatown Point.
We managed to try their Kohaku Tendon and Seasonal Tendon. Their Kohaku Tendon is their signature tendon bowl which comes with the deep fried tempura vegetables, chicken, prawns and other ingredients.
And as their winter special, their seasonal tendon this time round is an all seafood tendon bowl, filled to the brim with all your seafood goodies like prawns, squid, snow crab, a gigantic king crab stick, oysters and scallops. Not to mention it is also topped with a generous helping glistening ikura. Two words – Seafood. Heaven.
You also have the options of picking between the Japan 16 multigrain rice or the Nanatsuboshi Hokkaido Rice to go along with your perfectly fried tempura. And exclusively at the Chinatown outlet, they will be offering a secret homemade wasabi sauce that you can drench your tendon in! We suggest to get their Kohaku Tendon bowl with the wasabi sauce for that extra little kick, and enjoy the Seasonal Tendon bowl with the original sauce to savour all the seafood flavours!
But besides serving great dishes, they’ll be having great promotions throughout its opening week too. If you are fast enough to make it down for its opening day on the 6th of February, diners are entitled to 1-for-1 Kohaku Tendons (U.P $15+), limited to the first 400 bowls! But don’t worry, you can still grab a great tendon deal because from the 7th – 9th February, you can buy any 3 tendons bowls and receive a 4th bowl for free. So grab your friends and come on down!
