Sunday we got out and about early so that we could be one of the first ones in line at Hachimaki, a popular tempura shop in Jimbocho.

I had marked this place when we first moved to Tokyo back in 2018 when I had walked around this area while waiting for Satoshi to finish an errand.

We finally got to try them and it didn’t disappoint.

In business since 1930, this place is popular with famous literary people as well as celebrities.

I ordered the tendon 1000 yen (tax included) comes with 2 shrimp, 1 piece of squid, 1 piece of kisu (sillago), 1 piece bell pepper, 1 piece renkon (lotus root)

I was happy the waitress asked if I wanted more of less rice, I ordered less rice.

Satoshi ordered their ebi tendon 1300 yen (tax included) comes with 3 shrimp, 1 piece kisu (sillago), 1 piece bell pepper and 1 piece renkon

All came with miso soup and pickles.

The pickles were on the table and were housemade ginger.

On a side note: While we were eating, I was disappointed with the 3 people at the table next to us, who took off their masks to “talk story” while waiting for their meal.

Still, I'm glad we got to check this place out.

We'll be back.

ps While I was taking the picture of the shop, Satoshi saw the cute cat...can you see it?!

I'm not much of a tempura eater but do like tendon once in awhile. I would certainly like this!

Another cute store front! I love tendon.

K and S said...

Rowena, it was crispy but got soggy quite quickly with the tendon sauce on it.

Jalna, it was a cute store front :)

Take care you two.

Did Satoshi get the offer for more rice, too? Haaaar.

K and S said...

Saburo, no he just ate the regular sized rice :)

Take care.
