Tempura is a classical Portuguese dish brought to and popularised by Japan, consisting of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep fried. That was something I didn’t know previously.
Anyway, we decided to try Tempura Ginza Onodera in Tokyo, in order to understand the difference between normal tempura and the fancy ones. It was also a celebration dinner for my brother-in-law who got a job (1 year ahead of his graduation). It is common practice in Japan, to get a job before graduation. To me, it’s crazy and I heard it is really tough in Japan.
So a celebration is a must!
Just a little information on Onodera. It is a restaurant group with many outlets around the world. They specialised in sushi, teppanyanki and tempura. They have an outlet in Hong Kong and I will visit in future.
