Japan’s No.1 Tendon Chain Restaurant, Tempura Tendon Tenya

Opening 15 October 2020

Japan’s No.1 Tendon chain restaurant, Tempura Tendon Tenya or popularly known as Tenya, launches in Singapore on 15 October 2020 with its first 68-seater store located at Orchard Central.

Tendon fans will be excited by the news as Tenya has earned a following for authentic, quality, value-for-money meals. It is best known for its signature Tendon – a donburi bowl of lightly battered, crispy seafood, meat and/or vegetable tempura atop steaming Japanese Aomori rice with an umami tare glazing sauce drizzled over. Other favourites are the Japanese soba and udon noodles that complement an array of tempura in a marriage of textures and flavours.

Tempura has traditionally been a premium Japanese cuisine and requires over 10 years of training to master the art of frying tempura. With a patented Automatic Fryer, Tenya is able to apply these professional techniques in frying tempura consistently without the skills of an experienced chef. Tempura is also cooked faster and in greater quantity, making Tenya’s tendon more affordable at a lower than average market price. Without quality deterioration from continuous frying, this exclusive machine fries impeccably crisp tempura each time in a mere 2 minutes.
