Tenkichiya has one of the most exciting tempura bowls in Shinjuku.  The four big fresh shrimps on top of the tasty rice accompanied with eggplant, squid, kidney beans, eggs, and seaweed that are all sticking out from the big bowl looks splendid as if you are watching a bunch of unique ones trying to express themselves for the best.  You would also love the crispy texture of the tempura that are all extremely tasty with the secret sauce which perfectly match with the white rice hiding underneath.  Among those tasty tempuras on the rice, the shrimp was just exceptionally good with its impressive chewy texture which we have nothing but praises for.  When you come to Tenkichiya, you must not leave without having their Tenkichidon (1000 yen).
