Special “Jo” Bowl ($14.80), Premium “Toku-Jo” Bowl ($22.80) I feel like the tendon craze here has died down since a while ago when so many tendon places popped up, but I decided to try this newer place called Tenjin that’s opened by the Le Amis group and I was rly impressed! Although presented not as stunningly as other tendon bowls, I feel like the quality of the tendon here is much better and it’s a better size as the ingredients aren’t overly big and not so much rice is given. (Truthfully, I’ve been staying away from eating tendons because they always make me so uncomfortably full.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The batter was light and everything was fried well. I particularly liked the fried shiso leaf because of how crispy and delicate it was and the prawns, which were really tasty and tender inside- not overcooked at all. Another thing I liked was that the tempura was only drizzled with sauce lightly, and there’s small bits of kombu on top of the rice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thought that the Special “Jo” bowl was sufficient. It had veggies like eggplant, kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), lotus root, bell pepper, shiso leaf, mushroom, 2 prawns and a lovely fried free range egg that was oozy inside. The Premium “Toku-Jo” bowl, which had the same tempura as the Special bowl (minus the lotus), and the addition of anago, fish and crab leg. Personally feel that I could have done without the additional tempura, which cost $8 more and wasn’t very outstanding. Nonetheless, the tendons here are quite worth it as they come with a salad with a creamy sesame dressing and miso soup as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Their space is on the smaller side, but it‘s quite warm and cozy, and I enjoyed this meal! They’ve also recently added a few new items to their menu - a cold inaniwa udon with assorted tempura and a tempura moriwase which has tentsuyu (a light sweet soya tempura dipping sauce with dashi and mirin). They both sound delicious, so maybe I’ll be back again when I feel like it.

Toku-Jo Toku-Jo ($22.80) . @tenjinsg probably serves up the best bowl of tendon in sg despite me being a fan of Tendon Kohaku for so long. The entire experience is just many notches up in terms of the decor, the lack of oily stench that lingers on the clothes, and the perfect bowl of friedfood heaven. I went with the premium bowl because why not but they also have the usual $12.80 (vegetables) and $14.80 (prawns + veg) bowls that are great to order too. Every piece of ingredient is not overfried and they serve just enough rice to complement the ingredients. My favourite pieces were the anago, fish and lava egg. The fact that I didn’t have to queue was also a huge push factor to return before this place starts to catch the crowd.

For Value for Money Tempura Rice Bowls Make a mental note of this chic joint in Shaw Centre for future tempura cravings. Order the Toku-Jo Bowl ($22.80) for a generous serving of tempura anago, crab leg, prawn, fish and egg heaped on top of pearly white rice. Choose between a spicy or non-spicy sauce — Burppler Veronica Phua recommends the former for extra oomph. Each order comes with a side of shredded cabbage salad and miso soup so you'll definitely leave feeling satisfied! Photo by Burppler Veronica Phua

Classic Beef Cheeseburger ($6/single patty, $8/double patty), Fried Chicken Burger ($5.50). Team 🐄 or Team 🐓 ? A place to check out for cheap and good burgers, just as I did to sate my burger desire. Sandwiched between the fluffy toasted buns for the cheeseburger that the boyf had were some slow caramelised onions, American cheese, chopped pickled jalapeños, house-made sauce and of course the beef patties. Burst of beef flavour with a hint of char the moment we took a bite off the burger from their handmade beef patties, but we would have preferred it not to be well-done as it resulted in a slightly dry texture. Nevertheless, the sweet caramelised onions and melted cheese rounded the meaty taste off wonderfully with some moisture. There’s an option of original or spicy version for the fried chicken burger. I had the spicy version, which kinda reminded me of Mcspicy, but subtler. Complementing the crispy, succulent chicken thigh were a beautifully-colored house-made slaw and Hammee’s burger sauce, having a similar taste to the Thousand Island sauce. Though a spicy burger, the 🔥 which came trailing toward the end, was quite manageable. What really captivated me were still the toasted buns with a buttery aroma which hits the sweet spot. All burgers are served with a side of paprika-seasoned fries. Waiting time was approximately 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon.

Hawker Burgers Queued almost 1.5 hours for this. The grilled angus beef patties were juicy goodness and the buns are so soft. Hawker priced which makes them value for money for the quality you are getting. But really not worth waiting so long!

Premium Beef Cheeseburger ($8) It is one of those no-frill places that serves only 1 or 2 things on the menu and they do it right with a very affordable menu. The buns are nicely toasted and the beef patty is generous for the price. Take note that the wait could be up to 45mins during peak hours!
