Tempura Iwai

Tempura Iwai, located in Ginza, is one of the great Tempura houses in Tokyo. It serves high-end omakase courses made up of fresh seasonal ingredients.
The ingredients are carefully selected at the Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market. The courses are different every time depending on what is available. Expect to pay over ¥20,000.
In a clean-lined beautiful Japanese decor, you can sit at the wooden counter and see the master chef perfectly fry one piece of tempura at a time.
The tempura pieces have the perfect light crisp coating. They are served to you one piece at a time from directly behind the counter to your plate.

One of the stand-out tempura pieces is the uni (sea urchin) pictured above. The inside is only slightly cooked so you get to enjoy the creamy texture and taste the rich umami of this Japanese delicacy.
You can enjoy your meal with fine wines, sake, or even rare Japanese whisky.
Japanese food culture enthusiast. Love to explore new areas and discover local specialties.
