Tempura Funabashiya Honten 天ぷら 船橋屋 新宿本店

Tempura Funabashiya Honten / 天ぷら 船橋屋 新宿本店

Funabashiya Honten is an old and well-known tempura restaurant with about 130 years of history. Conveniently located in the center of bustling Shinjuku, it is a very popular spot at lunchtime, that is when the queues form, although the restaurant is large and the turnaround is fast, so they tend not to be very long. They have various sets starting from 1880 yen, tasting menus of various prices and you can also choose from, a la carte. There are quite a few vegetarian options. If you are lucky en ... ough to sit at the bar, you will be able to watch the chef's teacher, who will serve you your pieces, one by one, freshly made. Although the most common way of seasoning tempura pieces is by dipping them in a special soup, tentsuyu with grated turnip, it is said that to taste it well, you have to "touch" it with salt (they have a good selection of salts). It uses excellent cold-pressed sesame oil and fresh, high-quality ingredients. Funabashiya is an excellent approximation of a category tempura at very reasonable prices.
