Special Tendon - Ginza Tendon ItsukiSpecial Tendon from Ginza Tendon Itsuki – onsen egg, shrimp, chicken and mixed vegetable tempura (shiitake mushroom, pumpkin, corn and long beans) on rice drizzled with a sweet and savoury sauce. The onsen egg provided surprise and amusement and the various tempura elements were lightly battered and suitably pleasurable — if you ignore the bitchy gossip circulating audibly about how the chicken is not as thin and likable as the fish ex-wife and that the tendon certainly traded down — but in manner of a dog marking its territory, the restaurant will set loose a most greasy, choking, sesame oil-esque fragrance which will envelop every inch of your body within five minutes of you being seated, and this will unforgivably mar the experience – not even a trip to the nearby 100AM Fitness First for some judicious and out-of-control spraying of Adidas sports deodorant from armpit to toe will take away the possessive grip of said insistent smell. 3.5/5
