Hannosuke: A Tempura Specialist Stall in Mitsuwa

Johnny L | Jun 12, 201212:02 AM

Location: Mar Vista/Santa Monica Mitsuwa Food Court on Centinela Ave.

Grand opening was today and the first 100 customers got a few tendon. Being I had the day off work I decided to waste my morning and early afternoon in line with the housewives, elderly, and enthusiasts.

There are only two options of tendon, one with anago and one with whitefish. They were only serving the pricier option today which was nice of them.

Overall I thought the food has the potential to be good but the problem was they only served the first 100 as takeout orders and packed the food into styrofoam boxes so I feel got soggy in there even for the 1 minute it was closed. Honestly I can't say I'm disappointed since it was free and it wasn't the best representation of the food but I do think it has potential to be very good. I'm hoping to go back soon and actually pay for it but I thought the anago which was the only thing that came out very crispy was fried perfectly but rather lacking in flavor, not worth the extra $3 over whitefish in my opinion.
