Tendon Akimitsu: Tokyo Asakusa's Award-Winning Tempura Opens at Top of the Glo (Glorietta Makati)

Tendon Akimitsu has arrived in the Philippines for quite some time.  Finally, it opens its first solo shop in Glorietta 1 Top of the Glo.

I was really surprised to find that Glorietta 1 recently opened a roof deck area called Top of the Glo.  Although I have only explored its Japan Town, I hope to come back and check out more.

Tendon Akimitsu boasts of its awards as displayed by its counter.  Seeing these made me want to try it out with excitement.

Aburi Salmon (350 php)

Although specializing in tempura, I highly recommend wleting your appetite with the Aburi Salmon as a starter.  Just looking at this makes me fantasize of having this again.

Tendon Set

Nami Tendon Set (410 php)
 If you want to try a wonderful seafood tempura mix, order the Nami Tendon Set which is composed of Ebi Tempura (tiger prawns), scallops, whitebait fish, shrimps, okra and sweet potato.

Although Tendon Akimitsu is one of the new Tendon restaurants in Asakusa being established only in 2015, I trully believe that it deserves to be awarded for its Tempura.  It is indeed one of the best I've had.  The meal is very filling and worth the price.  Though, I felt the need to ask for more tempura sauce which the servers happily adhered to.

Donburi Set

Beef Don (350 php)
As delighted as I was with the Tempura, I felt the opposite when I had the Beef Don.  Being a fan of gyudon, I can't recall having one as dry and tough as this one.

pork don
Pork Don (320 php)

The Pork Don was also tough and dry.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Tendon Akimitsu proves worthy of having garnered mulitple awards for its Tendon.  So glad that it has more branches, I will head on over when craving for Tempura.  As for the donburi, I hope to give it another try next time as it did not meet my expectations.
