Japanese food is a constant in my ‘cravings bank’. You ask if there is such a thing? In my world, there is. Haha! If you’re a follower of my Instagram account, you probably know that I was in the US for a month. In that trip, I sunk my teeth into American food most of the time – burgers, bagels, steaks, etc. With that, I really missed Asian food, Japanese food particularly. So when I arrived, I figured I should get my Asian fix by satisfying my yearning for Japanese tempura as a start. The most convenient and reasonably priced Japanese place I thought of was Tokyo Tokyo.
During my visit to Tokyo Tokyo BGC, I saw the famous Jelito De Leon. Hello Jelito!

Love for Prawn Tempura

There is no room for debate that Prawn Tempura is a well-loved Japanese dish and we all have fond memories of our first taste of this crunchy and flavorful Japanese seafood staple. My sister, back when she was still in kindergarten, used to be very picky with what she eats. But when she had a taste of the tender yet crunchy texture of prawn tempura, she clung on to that taste and would always request for it. Mom takes the credit of influencing us to love prawn tempura since we were kids.
I believe you’re not an exception. Don’t you also have that love for prawn tempura?
If the answer is ‘YES’, this love we all have for prawn tempura has led to January 7 being celebrated as National Tempura Day. In your head, “Whuutt? There’s such a thing?” Yes, guys. Google it! People from different parts of the world feast on this deep-fried seafood as they satisfy their cravings for prawn tempura.
And here in the Philippines we are celebrating this love with Tokyo Tokyo!
