JIMBOCHO: "TENDON Imoya" Ten-don (rice bowl) for 550yen

Authenti Japanese Ten-Don by chef's for only 550yen. You'll sit shoulder to shoulder with salarymen and university students (lots of universities in this area).

Menu is limited but most customers ordered the 550yen Ten-Don that consists of one piece of shrimp, fish, seaweed and ika (squid?).   There is also a Tempura-Don with only Shrimp for 800yen.

2 chefs behind the counter will ask you "Tendon deskuka?"  Just say "Hai" or say "Tempura Don kudasai" for the shrimp only rice bowl.  Cup of hot tea will arrive first.

All counter seating... my view.  The tempura is fried when the order is placed.

Seasoned radish on the counter.

Think this is Asari or Shijimi Miso Soup... comes with the meal.

My meal!  If you want extra rice just say "Oomori" when you order.

If you are in the area there are several IMOYA's.  Tonkatsu, Tempura and Tendon shops:
