Hannosuke: A Pictorial Essay

Verdict: These tempura bowls are good! (as long as you eat it right then and there and not take it to go)... Each bowl is made to order. This locations marks the first U.S. outpost for Kaneko Hannosuke, made famous in its Nihonbashi location in Tokyo generations ago.

The menu is easy: Just 2 bowls to choose from. Both bowl options are excellent. With your order, you also get a bowl of miso soup and a bit of gari (ginger) with sesame to lighten the grease... Hannosuke is a nice alternative to Santouka in the food court at Mitsuwa Market. If you do decide to get it to go, be warned: The tempura & rice can get soggy quickly, leading to a suboptimal experience. I'd recommend eating the tendon (tempura bowl) right then and there.
