Tenshin

Posted on: May 6, 2016

Tenshin is probably most well-known as the place to go if you want really high-quality Japanese tempura, nothing like the crude stuff we see all the time at most of the Japanese restaurants in Singapore.

While I did try a Michelin 1* tempura restaurant in Tokyo quite a long time ago, I wouldn’t say Tenshin is that far behind it.

In fact it might just be the best place to have a high level of tempura in Singapore. Yet the only problem is that it is really expensive for what you get.

So I think the value proposition of Tenshin is a bit weird because if I was rich enough to eat at Tenshin more often, it’s probably more worth it just to visit Japan on vacation to eat much better tempura there.

And if I’m not rich, then I would have to save up to eat at Tenshin, which also means I should just save up for a vacation to Japan…

Either way, there’s not much reason for me to return to Tenshin.

But the food is undeniably good and authentic, so maybe if you’re rich, love eating tempura, and lazy to visit Japan – then Tenshin is really for you!

Otherwise just head to Tokyo for places like Tempura Tsunahachi or Funabashiya Honten.

See how thin the crust of the batter is?

This fat lobe of uni wrapped in nori was ala carte and it’s super expensive but so so so worth it.

Really loved this too, the rice with scattered tempura bits! I could eat this all day…
