Introducing High-End Tempura Bar Experience

Here’s another Japanese word to add to our food vocabulary. ‘Tempura’ is a dish that usually emphasizes on fresh seafood or vegetables. They are lightly battered and deep-fried to perfection. The fritter-cooking techniques actually come from Portuguese back when they resided in Nagasaki in the 16th century.

However, tempura is often considered as a genuine Japanese dish. The dish is glorified greatly for its intricate flavour and elegant art at Tenmasa. Find the established bar next to its associated restaurant, Sushi Ryu, at Platinum Park.

Ingredients Were Flown Directly From Japan To Your Plate

Yes! Nothing but the freshest when it comes to Japanese cuisines. Therefore, all of the ingredients used were air-flown from Japan at least 3 times a week! Live freshwater prawns are the only ingredient that is sourced locally. The chefs would prepare the dish and drop them tenderly into 180°C oil. As if they are caring for a baby.

Tempura should receive its own spotlight

The Curate Group established Tenmasa. “We don’t feel tempura was ever a side dish. The batter, the ingredients and the type of oil used all play a role,” Said Nerine Tan, Director of The Curate Group. The Curate Group has also founded many other boutique Japanese dining concepts such as Sushi Ryu, Bar Shake, and Sushi Den. “Tenmasa is the first and only tempura bar in Malaysia and we are proud of that.”
