Its been a while since I last visited Tendon Imoya but I actually found my way here after finding out that my favorite Jinbocho Ramen Jiro is closed on Wednesdays~...
Only 2 items on the Menu. Tendon 550yen (1 piece of shrimp, white fish, squid, seaweed and something else) and the Shrimp Tendon 800yen (4 pieces of shrimp and 2 small green veggies).
There it is... my "Ebi Tendon" that includes green tea and a bowl of miso soup (with tiny clams that are famous for curing hangovers... Shijimi clams!). I believe you can order seconds on the soup for free.
"L" shaped counters eating and perfect view of the chef cooking... these guys usually have quite a few scars due to all the hot oil popping out of the pot thing.
In Jimbocho there are several Imoya's scattered about with each specializing in their own dish... Tonkatsu-Imoya (home of the mean unfriendly Tonkatsu chef) and Tempura Imoya.
