For those who work in the CBD, are you on a constant lookout for cheap places to dine at during lunch?

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.
