- Asakusa is a bit far from my place.
- Typical tempura rice bowl in the Asakusa area has a moist fried batter with tempura sauce. Some people prefer it, but I personally prefer crisp fried batter.
- In Asakusa, you probably need to pay 1.5x to twice as much in a famous tempura rice bowl store.
- There are some other competitive tempura rice bowl stores at the same price range, but I can trust the freshness of the ingredients at TEN KICHI YA. They select and cook lively fish, so the fish doesn’t smell fishy so much. So you can purely enjoy the combination of the taste of ingredients, fried batter, and tempura sauce.
You’ll be surprised at how big the ingredients are
Everything is fried crispy and fresh. Rice is free refill
The store staff recommended us to pour this soup with these toppings onto the rice (you can get another cup of rice, if you want). You can enjoy a Chazuke style rice bowl with a refreshing taste.
Recently the store is always crowded with more travelers from overseas. And the shop tends to close early. It’s better to go there before 6 pm.
