TEN KICHI YA is particular about every ingredient. We rigorously select shrimps and other materials, under the policy of “dynamic” and procure them directly from Uogashi (fish markets) . The oil used for tempura is produced by blending some kinds of oils into “sesame oil,” which is the standard one for tempura, so as to produce a good flavor and shake off oil smoothly after the frying process. We also mix flours in an original way, so as to produce a savory flavor and remove oil easily after frying. Our secret sauce is produced by bringing out the taste of bonito soup and the umami of kelp. As for rice, we store them at low temperatures and make them polished in each production area in Japan, to achieve the taste and flavor of rice that go well with those of tempura.
