Tendon Kohaku can be considered as one of Singaporean’s favourite Tendon shop.
It is known for its Edomae Tendon, where bowls of Hokkaido rice piled with tempura drizzled in a specially made sauce are served.
The Japanese eatery has also introduced a seasonal Ocean Gems Tendon ($23.00++), its first-ever winter collection seafood tendon available in both spicy and original versions.
The bowl comprises of fresh catch such as prawns, snow crab, king crab meat, scallop, oyster and squid, topped with generous portion of ikura. There is also an option of multi-grain rice – good to know that.
You would note that the outer batter look light greenish. That is because aonori (dried seaweed) powder is added, which adds lends a unique green colour in addition to subtle earthy notes.
Among all the pieces, I liked the king crab meat and snow crab best – both tasting sweet and juicy.
The scallop, while noted to be one of the most expensive pieces inside, turned out to be disappointing – detached from the batter, tasting rather bland.
This version was pleasantly light, though I still liked Tendon Kohaku during its opening days, in which every piece was crisp with a crunch.
