Japan 2019 - 2 Tempura

After our first day of artist visits, the tour group at at Tempura Kondoh, a highly regarded classic tempura restaurant in Ginza.

The highlight, as at any good tempura place, is watching the preparation and cooking of the lightly fried vegetables and seafood. Here are some photos showing the brilliant knife skills that resulted in a delicious shredded carrot tempura that is not classic: a showstopper.

Another treat was a fried shrimp soupy rice dish that tasted as good as it looked.

A good start to a very food-oriented tour.
