Also known as Cherry Blossom Shrimp & Angelica Keiskei Fritters.
.
This feature a light crisp tempura / fritter batter that is non-greasy and airy, crunching softly when bit and releasing a grainy sweet salty flavour.
.
Within, are whole sakura ebi / cherry blossom shrimp which are juicy and hold savoury sweet flavour, along with crisp ashitaba / angelica keiskei leaves which have vegetal earthy bitter herbal notes.
.
Served with a small Japanese lime which has bright zesty tangy sour citrus notes.
.
Oddly, there's no tentsuyu / tempura dipping sauce, instead, they served a unique matcha kaien shio / green tea sea salt which has earthy grassy salty notes, and which tasted delicious in pairing.
.
