When the Japanese want tempura, they go to a restaurant that serves nothing but. This high-end tempura-ya in Ginza has a number of outposts in Tokyo, including in the Isetan department store and the Imperial Hotel—but the ritual doesn't change. Sit at the sleek wood counter and watch as your chef batter-coats each stalk of asparagus, plump mushroom, and luscious prawn, then serves them, one at a time, piping hot from the oil. Tempura is all about the batter, the freshness and quality of the deep-frying oil, and the ingredients, and Ten-Ichi gets high marks all around. Each time you bite through the hot, crunchy coating, you get a burst of fresh flavor. The contrast in textures and temperatures is so perfect, it's a surprise each time. There are differently priced set menus, and you can also order separate items, including seasonal specialties. Salt and lemon are provided, which are a better alternative with some of the more delicately flavored offerings than the usual dipping sauce. The lunch set menu starts at 7,000 yen ($61); dinner starts at 8,000 yen ($69).

Open daily 11:30 am to 9:30 pm.
