Tenya Tempura Tendon Opens 3rd Branch in Market! Market! Bonifacio Global City

It's a known fact that Filipinos love food and that the Philippines continues to serve as a melting pot of cultural exchanges from all over the world. Although we strongly promote our own dishes, it's also good to be well-versed in the cuisines of other countries because, hey, they're also delicious!

Take for example Japanese classics like the Tonkatsu, Curry, and Ramen that have already established a growing number of Pinoy fans. But then, let's not forget another Japanese food staple -- the tendons. In Japan, it's been said the most delicious ones can be found in Tenya, which originated in Asakusa, Tokyo.

The good news is, Tenya is already here in the Philippines and they offer authentic Japanese Tendons that are exactly what the stores in Japan serve! In case you missed my other blog post about my first time to try Tenya in SM Megamall, please visit this link. It has photos of other Tenya offerings that are very mouthwatering.

Now, the fast-growing dining establishment has two new branches, both located in Bonifacio Global City. One is in BGC Stopover Pavillon while the other is in Market! Market! I was at the latter the other day and happily ordered a bowl of ALL STAR TENDON that contains black tiger prawn, squid, salmon, kani stick, green beans, and mushroom tempuras on top of steaming hot Japanese rice and Tenya's signature Dontare sauce.

This sauce is a special blend that gives a sweet and umami touch to Tempura flavors. It is specially made by a boutique soy sauce factory (since the 1800's!) and then shipped to every Tenya store worldwide.

gotta admit, it's quite hard to take a bite of the bear! :(
For dessert, I had Ning-Yo Yaki Sundae, which has vanilla ice cream in Nutella topped with a baked Japanese cake shaped like a cute bear and caramelized popcorn. I love the different flavors and textures!

Here are other tendon creations you may want to try when you visit Tenya in the coming days:
