Ten Ten Tempura House

Hi Eaters.

I have mentioned before that I just love to do a second visit to a restaurant that is in the top of my list for certain cuisine.
I took the opportunity last Sunday to looked back on my list and found that there was only one restaurant that is on the top of my list when it comes for tempura. Yes, I called it the "Tempura Maestro" since its tempura was that good. If you're curious just how good the tempura is, stay tune on this review about Ten Ten.






Ten Ten is one of the restaurant affiliated with Boga Group, a company that has a chain of numerous wonderful restaurants. Ten Ten itself specializes in Japanese cuisines, particularly tempura.
The interior was dominated by wood. So it felt quite japanese vintage inside. The place is cozy and comfortable, and the service was excellent. Here are some snapshots of the interior for you to see.










So it's pretty nice right? Well so are the foods. But to be more sure, let's just start eating.
The Menu Book
The Menu Book
Ten Ten specializes in tempura dishes. But also here you will find other Japanese delicacies, such as ramen, bento, udon, tendon, rice, small bites, and salad.
Nori Tempura
Nori Tempura
When you dine here, the waiter will give you a complimentary dish, which is a bowl ofNori Tempura - free. The flavor of the tempura can be choose: original, spicy, seaweed, black pepper, and curry. I opt for the original flavor, so the tempura batter wasn't mixed with any additional seasoning. It tasted nice, the batter was crunchy and so was the nori. The overall taste was delicious. One bowl wasn't enough for me.
Tempura Curry Rice

Tempura Curry Rice - Rp. 50.000. This menu came with a small bowl of salad. The tempuras in this dish were shiso leaf, onion, prawn, and kabocha. The tempuras without a doubt as the restaurant's specialties, tasted great. The rice was cooked nicely too. It's fluffy and nice. The curry sauce was wonderful. It has a strong curry taste with a sizzling savory punch. It was so good.
Salmon Spicy Ramen

Salmon Spicy Ramen - Rp. 63.000. It may bear the word spicy in its name, but for my palate it was quite mild. Actually this menu came in a big portion that would fit for 2 persons. The ramen noodle was very good, chewy and nice. The ramen soup was super tasty, it's so delicious. And there are quite plenty of nori inside. Not to forget, there are also slices of salmon, which in my consideration were so soo yummy. The whole dish and its components are just awesome!
Set Tempura & Chicken Karaage
Set Tempura & Chicken Karaage
Set Tempura & Chicken Karaage - Rp. 68.000. For you who are heavy eaters, Ten Ten has a range of set menus to choose. My option was to choose the set with chicken karaage. There are quite a lot of components in this dish. I will break it down to you one by one.
Tempura
Tempura
The tempuras need no more introduction. As I have mentioned before, they just tasted wonderful. In this dish, the tempuras given were prawn, onion, green beans, shitake mushroom and sweet potato. All of them just tasted great, with perfect texture. Nothing was too hard to chew. Awesome!
Tempura Dipping Sauce
Tempura Dipping Sauce
The tempuras came with dipping sauce presented in a small bowl. It really elevated the taste of the tempura batter.
Chicken Karaage
Chicken Karaage
Chicken karaage is chicken meat marinated in seasoning (commonly garlic and soy sauce) and then deep fried until it's golden brown. The taste was also fantastic. The batter was pretty crunchy with a good level of saltiness. The chicken meat was delicious. It's juicy. And since it was marinated, it was also quite savory.
Miso Soup
Miso Soup
The miso soup was excellent, with a strong taste of soy bean. Inside the soup I also found nori. It tasted great.
Mini Salad
Mini Salad
The salad was refreshing. The dressing had a strong punch of vinegar. So it's quite acidic. But I love this kind of taste. Reminds me of the taste from wakame salad.
Rice
Rice
And this dish also had a bowl of fluffy and hot rice. So just having order this menu will make you quite full, because I can say this is quite a complete menu.

Done with the main course, let's jump to my favourite part. Desserts. Yeayy!!!

Yeayy!! my favourite dessert in Ten Ten, the Panacotta - Rp. 25.000. I loved this dessert so much, I just gotta have this if ever I go back to Ten Ten. It came in small bowl but with 3 flavors at once. There are the crumble dough with raisin, red beans with matcha, and goma. The last time I had this dessert, I recall that the red bean tasted quite bitter. But this time it tasted nice. Sweet but still not overpowering the taste of the matcha. So now the three of them are just so delicious. Definitely will be my all time favourite dessert in Ten Ten.
Caramel Banana Tempura

Caramel Banana Tempura - Rp. 25.000. This one was a mind-blowing, super sweet tooth dessert. The banana was soooo tender, sweet and juicy. It's really super delicious. The batter was crispy and the caramel sauce was perfect. In this dish there was also a scoop of vanilla ice cream which had decent level of sweetness and it went so well when I ate it together with the banana. Really really super tasty. It's so good, I was afraid I might chew on my own cheek. Seriously, do try this dessert.
Ice Green Tea
Ice Green Tea
Ice Green Tea - Rp. 10.000. The taste of tea wasn't that strong. I really wished it could be bolder. But the great thing was that it's refillable.

Overall conclusion, if ever in your mind you should want to eat tempura then there's no better place to go except Ten Ten. It's a great tempura restaurant which not only offers you great food, but also good ambience and wonderful service.
The price tags are reasonable if you compare them to the wonderful food this restaurant's offering.
You just can't go wrong by choosing this restaurant as your dining spot.
I will definitely come back for another visit, there are just too many delicacies left untried.

Keep on chewing!
