Japan's number 1 Tendon Chain: Tenya Tempura Tendon

Tempura is one of the first dishes we think of when it comes to Japanese cuisine. Just imagine it sitting atop a steaming bowl of Japanese rice, or next to a tray of soba or udon. A deep fried ebi (shrimp) coated in a puffed up, crisp, golden brown and delicious batter, pinched between chopsticks, lightly glazed in sauce, brought to your lips to experience that tasty, close-your-eyes kind of satisfying goodness. Mmm…

Tenya has come to Philippine shores armed with a standardized cooking technique, promising a perfect balance between flavor and texture in every piece and every bite. Along with it comes the distinct Don Tare sauce; a condiment that is a special blend of secret sauces, giving a sweet and umami oomph in Tempura flavors. The Don Tare sauce has been specially made by a boutique soy sauce factory since the 1800’s, which is then shipped to every Tenya store in the world.

Tenya truly is second to none when it comes to world-class tempura excellence because Tenya IS Tempura & Tendon. So if you haven’t had some yet, then you haven’t really had tempura at all. Don’t get left out! Tenya is now open to satisfy gargantuan sized cravings at the 4th Floor, Building A, SM Megamall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City. You can also stop by the newest branches at the latest restaurant hubs for food enthusiasts at the 2nd floor, BGC Stopover Pavillion, Rizal Drive corner 31st Street, Bonifacio Global City, and at Market! Market! McKinley Parkway, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Also, look out for when the SM Southmall branch opens their doors to serve tempura-craving patrons real soon.


The Philippines has served as a hub for cultural exchanges since the earliest times and it’s undeniable how this has highly influenced one thing that all Filipinos love – food. Through this, Filipinos get a taste of the diverse and exciting flavors from all over the world with some earning a permanent place in the hearts of many. One perfect example of that is how the arrival of Japanese classics such as the Tonkatsu, Curry, and Ramen started a food craze that swept the whole country and established a growing number of Japanese food lovers. Now, primed and ready to create a new niche in the Philippines’ food scene is one of the most highly decorated and proudest food staples of Japan – Tenya’s authentic Japanese Tendons.

Tempura Tendon

Golden brown and delicious tempura sits atop a bed of steaming Japanese rice. Each piece is made with naturally grown Black Tiger prawns and an assortment of freshly cut vegetables, dredged in specially formulated batter, then fried to perfection. It is then drizzled with Tenya’s signature and flavorful Don Tare Sauce, which is then absorbed by the Tempura, gently softening its batter, while adding flavor to the rice.
