Just a minute walk from Kyobashi station, here you should try Michelin featured restaurant's Kakiage-don! Kakiage is similar to tempura, except that seafood and vegetables are cut into smaller pieces and mixed together, dipped in batter then fried. Their high quality tempura is a must try food in Kyobashi! Their price for lunch is reasonable (around ¥2,000~2,999) so it is perfect to have lunch there.
Warning: sometimes it could be fully booked, so it might be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand!

What's so special about their tendon is their famous "Ten-mabushi" - you can enjoy tendon in 3 ways at once! First you can enjoy tempura by itself, then tendon, and if you pour hot tea it will become Tendon-chazuke! This is their original menu, so you can only enjoy this here.
Plus, their original tendon, called "Tenkichi tendon", is also famous for its satisfying volume of topping tempura!
Just a 4 minute walk from Shinjuku station, west exit, so if you are in Shinjuku, you should definitely go and try their unique tendon!
