Masaru

Masaru is a tempura restaurant that serves good quality tendon. It is a small restaurant, and it is slightly hidden in the street. A lot of people line up to try their tendon, which tells us how good and popular it is. Their Edomae tendon has huge shrimp, anago, megochi and kisu's tempura on top, which is available at ¥3,700. It may sound expensive than other stores, but it's definitely worth a try because it is a top-notch tendon!
Just be careful with open hours and date because they close as soon as they sell out, and when they were not able to prepare good toppings they are going to be closed. Around a 5 minute walk from Asakusa station.
