Tempura Kiku closed permanently in July 2007. This page is kept here for historical interest.
Tempura is simply deep-fried foods, though the Japanese version generally uses a much lighter batter than is found in Western versions. Fried shrimp is familiar to Americans, and shrimp tempura is similar, though much larger shrimp are used. More exotic are the various vegetables are used in tempura. The fried food is served with a sauce into which you dip the item before eating it. Don't worry if you can't get the hang of the chopsticks—it is acceptable to eat with your hands.
Pick what you want and get it fried. Shrimp, chicken, scallops or some combination thereof are batter fried with a selection of vegetables. Once you've had cauliflower tempura, you'll wonder why it isn't a common American option. A limited selection of sushi is also available as well as Japanese alcoholic beverages.
