What: A tiny tempura resto in Tanjong Pagar that only has TWO items (Special – aka meat – TENDON or Vegetable TENDON) on the menu and a snaking line out the door.
Pros: It’s reasonable, tasty and the portions are huge (very yummy chawanmushi starter comes with the set).
Cons: Chicken tempura is like weird in theory AND in reality and it’s a big part of the Special Tendon option. Also beware you will smell like someone doused you in frying oil for the rest of the day and night.
Verdict: I would go back for the Vegetable TENDON option on a day that I can reach Tanjong Pagar at 11:30am.
