An award-winning tempura and tendon restaurant from Asakusa, Tokyo—Shitamatchi Tendon Akimitsu has opened in Singapore with its first outlet at Plaza Singapura.
With more than 128 years of culinary experience, Shitamatchi Tendon Akitmisu promises to impress all diners with authentic tempura and tendon. Furthermore, Chef Tanihara Akimitsu, the founder of Akitmitsu and 5th-generation head chef of Dote No Iseya, had flown over to Singapore to personally provide training to the crew at its Plaza Singapura outlet. Now, that is some dedication.
Excited to have a taste of their famous recipe, we made our way down to their Plaza Singapura outlet on their grand opening day. We’d go out on a limb and say that this is one of the best places to have tendon in Singapore.
Founded by local celebrities Chew Chor Meng and Zhou Chongqing in partnership with cousins Esmond and Ronnie, 888 Mookata—at the coffee shop in Blk 212 Hougang Street 21—is a new 2-week old Mookata restaurant and the latest addition to the Mookata scene in Singapore.
To top it off, service at this restaurant is exemplary which contributes to an enhanced dining experience.
Widely recognised as one of the best tendon eateries in Singapore, Tendon Kohaku is a popular tendon speciality restaurant found at Eat at Seven at Suntec City. It is also situated right beside Katsudon Hanakatsu, a Katsu Don specialist by the same team at Tendon Kohaku.
The last time we visited Eat at Seven, we recalled seeing snaking queues outside Tendon Kohaku and we were curious to discover what was all the rage about this tendon specialist. Although we visited early, we were still greeted by a no less lengthy queue. But trust us, Tendon Kohaku’s KOHAKU Tendon (S$15) will make your efforts worthwhile.
What is green, comes with plenty of health benefits and has a strong vegetal taste? Matcha, of course! For the uninitiated, matcha is a type of premium Japanese green tea that is mostly harvested in Japan. It is highly sought after in many Japanese restaurants and bakeries that use the powder for beverages, desserts and baked goods.
Matcha is said to be packed with plenty of antioxidants and helps to calm the body and mind. In fact, research shows that matcha powder is actually better than loose tea leaf as it gives you more vitamins and minerals.
Beyond all its health benefits, many of us enjoy matcha simply because it tastes wonderful! Being such matcha addicts, nothing lifts our mood better than a matcha soft serve, matcha latte or matcha soufflé. If you agree with us, here are 7 Matcha Cafes In Singapore You Have To Check Out. READ ON
