So i heard the champion of tempura is in Shitamachi Tendon located at Evolve Concept Mall, Ara Damansara.Yakitori Dining Fukuda on the left, Shitamachi Tendon on the right. Me and my friends went for Shitamachi Tendon.
There are quite a lot of choices for tendon and tempura. But no ramen or udon on the menu.Deluxe tendon [RM49]. Comes with generous amount of tempura squids, a tempura conger eel, tempura okra and 1 big tempura prawn. The batter is light and crisp. The sauce gives a very good flavour for the tendon. There is a hint of sesame oil flavour too. Kakiage Tendon [RM32]. Chopped potatoes, yam, fish, prawns and scallops kakiage tempura. Regular Tendon [Rm36]. Tempura fish, tempura prawns and tempura squids.
All of the tendon comes with tea and miso soup. The tempura is good but not as great as the bloggers said. By the way, the chef will only fry the tempura upon order so there is no pre-fried tempura in Shitamachi Tendon. The service was good during my visit. Chefs and staff have a bright smile on their faces. The price is a little steep though.Spacious and empty.
The mall is fairly new but there are jaya grocer, H&M, FOS and few other shops, enough for you to spend an afternoon. There are quite a few restaurants, food stall and the foodzine will be opening soon. PS: Parking is free.
