After flying back to Tokyo from Hokkaido, our first order of business was to visit one of the highly recommended restaurants in Asakusa, Tempura Daikokuya! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

Why Tempura Daikokuya

Before going to Japan, we have heard from a lot of people that it is a must to head down to Tempura Daikokuya to try out their tempura. But in order to eat there, we would have to be there early as there is always a super long queue at the restaurant, which we of ‘cos experienced during our visit there. (´• ω •`)

Journey to Tempura Daikokuya

Having done our research, we headed out to take the metro to Asakusa station. With the help of our half-trusty GPS on Google Maps, we started our walk to look for Tempura Daikokuya. And we eventually found it! \(★ω★)/

The queue had already started when we reached it, and this was before the restaurant’s opening hours! Even when we left the restaurant, there was still a long queue outside. It seems to be a never-ending queue once the restaurant opens! w(°o°)w

Our Dining Experience

After waiting for some time, we finally entered the restaurant. And we were in the first batch! YIPPEE~! o(≧▽≦)o But sadly, the restaurant does not have an English menu. Luckily, I have been studying the Japanese language! With my very limited hiragana and based on what people recommended on their blogs, we managed to make our order. Haha! If I never remember wrongly, we made two orders of TENDON 1, based on what is listed on their website. ( ´ ω ` )

The tendon from Tempura Daikokuya is totally different from the many tempuras we have eaten in Singapore. The tempuras were overflowing in the bowl. After being drizzled with its special tempura sauce, they were not as crispy anymore. I guess that is the unique thing about the tendon here at Tempura Daikokuya.

Even though the food here was good, I think I would much prefer to have more crisp to my tempuras. I think this is more of a personal preference thing. Well, at least we have scored an achievement by visiting one of the most popular restaurants here in Japan! ( ´ ω ` )
