One Michelin Star Tempura Restaurant in Tokyo : Tempura Motoyoshi

Tempura Motoyoshi(One Michelin Star) offers four kind omakase menu, which starts from ¥9,500 – ¥14,900. I’ll highly recommend going for the 14,900¥ set as it would feature sashimi dishes such as scallops and sea urchin.

Owner and chef Kazuhito Motoyoshi emphasizes on using seasonal vegetables, which is why the menu ends up with so many vegetable dishes. And quite frankly, he manages to make a tempura meal seem so healthy with the choices of produce he uses.

Reservations are a must (way in advance). This is a 9 seater restaurant and only opens for dinner.

So hidden, I had trouble locating the restaurant. Seeming as it does not have any English signage.

This is personally my favourite dish, I never expected clam tempura to taste this good. Finish it up with clam soup.

You get to choose how small/big you’ll like your Tendon to be. As small as a tea cup, as big as a ramen bowl! **No Extra Charge**
