Tendon (short for tempura donburi) is gaining immense popularity in the Japanese food scene here in Singapore. In the past, tendon may not be the first thought whenever one thinks of Japanese cuisine—it is often overshadowed by ramen, the eye-pleasing chirashi don, or fresh nigiri sushi—but things are indeed picking up for this humble dish.
A good way to describe tendon is that it is basically a bowl of glistening Japanese rice topped with deep fried tempura and drizzled with a light soy-based dressing. It is the epitome of Japanese comfort food because who can ask for better than deep fried goodness and tasty rice?
If you are looking for places in Singapore to satisfy your tendon obsession, then this guide will surely be beneficial to you. Here is our guide to the 8 Best Tendon Restaurants in Singapore for you to get your tendon fix.
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.
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.
