Tempura Kondo てんぷら 近藤
5-5-13 Ginza, Sakaguchi Bldg 9F, Chuo 104-0061, Tokyo, Japan
Kaede Dinner Course
This place is a Michelin 2 starred restaurant. Chef Kondo has 2 pans filled with oil. He would batter the food, then place it in the first pot for a very short amount of time, then transfer it to the second pot. The tempura was lighter on batter than what you find at most places and literally from pot to plate a piece at a time. If you’re a die hard sweet potato fan, don’t forget to order their signature sweet potato tempura, which has to be ordered at the start of your meal as it requires about 30 mins to prepare.
The head of the prawn was so crispy, like potato chips!
Soft and juicy with a very thin layer of batter.
The fish was in perfect texture, crispy on the skin but juicy and tender inside!
This is my favorite among all 3 different kinds of white fish.
The taste of baby corn was so mild and sweet, love it!
