Nothing brings friends and family together like good food does. Wednesdays and weekends are dedicated for family days. This means taking a vote on where we want to go, what we want to do and most importantly, what we want to eat. My kids are perennially hungry and are always willing to try something different. So last month, aside from indulging in old favorites, the family tried new flavors.
Tempura the Tenya way
My daughter and I are tempura monsters! We know good ebi tempura from the minute we take our first bite. Some are soft, some too heavily battered, most use shrimps and not tiger prawns. Tenya, however, is known for its deep-fried battered seafood, meat and vegetables which are cooked using infrared heat technology, ensuring consistent tempura every time. The flavor of Tenya’s tendon (tempura rice bowl) is based on a proven combination of 100% hearthealthy canola oil and a flavored flour which gives it that light and crispy finish. Dontare sauce is liberally drizzled once the seafood is placed on top of a heaping, steaming bowl of Japanese rice.

At the recently opened Tenya branch in Tiendesitas, I tried the Jo Tendon set. My daughter is a purist and devoured her Classic All Ebi Tempura Teishoku set, which is served with potato salad and hot miso. The boys enjoyed the tempura-fried maki with mango,
