Covid-19 be damned — competition for affordable Japanese food in Singapore is getting stiffer. The latest entrant is casual Japanese tendon (tempura on rice) chain Tempura Tendon Tenya, which boasts 226 stores across the world. The Tokyo-born eatery opened today (15 Oct) at Orchard Central. 

It gives other tendon chains such as Tendon Kohaku and Tendon Ginza Itsuki in Singapore a run for its money — in contrast, the seafood tempura bowls at most tendon places in Singapore cost between $15-$20. 

The franchise was brought here by Japanese restaurant operator Royal Holdings Co and local restaurant operator Yotei Pte. Ltd. They plan to open more Tenya stores next year.
