Tempura Tendon Tenya opens ION Orchard outlet with exclusive new dishes

Following its success at Orchard Central, Tempura Tendon Tenya opens its second outlet at ION Orchard. Not only is it their second outpost, but it also sees a slew of outlet-exclusive menu items that can only be enjoyed at ION Orchard. I suppose if you really were a die-hard fan of the brand, you could hop on a train and shuttle between the two outlets to complete your Tempura Tendon Tenya experience.

Salmon Tendon

As someone partial towards salmon—my fridge has an always-ready stock of this reliable fish for easy meals—their Salmon Tendon (S$14.90) is no exception to the rule of ‘dependable’. Battered till golden, the fatty fish doesn’t lose its succulence to the deep fryer. Be sure to pour on the extra crispy bits for a satisfying one-bowl meal.

Truffle chawanmushi

Go with the Truffle Chawanmushi (S$4) to add a touch of opulence to your main. This wasn’t the best truffle-something I’ve tasted, but it’s a sure-win for those who absolutely lust over the unmistakable aroma of this famed mushroom. I still would choose a stripped-down version of chawanmushi, but that’s just me being a basic b**tch.

Hiroshima Oyster Tempura

On the other hand, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Hiroshima Oyster Tempura (S$7.80), especially considering I can only stomach a pair of oysters at a time. The oysters proved to be sweet and briny, with just the right thickness of batter to not distract from the decadent oysters.

Kawa Ebi Karaage

If I could have this with every pint of beer, I would. The Kawa Ebi Karaage (S$7.50) is a toothsome side that will have you failing to resist finishing on your own. Spritz a dash of lime, and lord, help us all—it’s glorious.

Daifuku with soft serve

Just be sure to eat at a measured pace so that you have sufficient room for Daifuku with Soft Serve (S$4.40). While the dish isn’t exploding with novelty, its simplicity works in its favour; chewy mochi skin stuffed with starchy red bean, and complemented by creamy, airy vanilla soft serve. Who am I to complain?

These are just some of the ION Orchard outlet exclusives available, with a handful more that I shan’t reveal—because where would the joy in your visit be?
