Tenkichiya is famous not only for their delicious tempura but also tendon (tempura topped on bowl of rice)! 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!

Tenkane serves good quality tempura that uses fish freshly selected from Tsukiji fish market as ingredients. Using luxurious oil making method used in Edo era, they use a mix of pure sesame oil and vegetable oil to cook tempura. Their tentsuyu (sauce that you dip tempura in to eat it) is passed on from previous owners, which indicates that their tsuyu hasn't changed at all.
