This Tokyo hidden gem is a Japanese family owned Edo style Tempura restaurant, named Tempura Mikaku, located in the backstreets of Roppongi, one of Tokyo’s busiest night spots. This Japanese food restaurant has been in business since 1931. Originally opened in Nihonbashi, it later relocated to Roppongi which is only a 3 minutes walk from exit 3 of Roppongi station. This hidden gem tempura restaurant also has a unique way of firing their tempura, with drumsticks. The owner and head chef, a former jazz drummer, is the one who started this. Apparently, regular chopsticks are much thinner and eventually break after so many washings, while drumsticks are made out of a hickory which is very strong and hard so it lasts much longer over time. This is a behind the counter view of what really happens at a Japanese cuisine tempura restaurant as they setup and prepare the meals.
