Friday nights are date nights for my family and this week the kids and I sampled the holiday offerings of Tenya. It’s Festival branch sits about 20 to 25 guests. Every nook is “instagrammable” and here the walls literally speak.
We ordered the Ultimate Crab Tendon. The newest rice bowl can be shared by two as it comes with a mountain of seafood tempura from crab claw, soft shell crab, crablets, kani kakeage, to black tiger prawn with an ample side of aligue (crab fat). The server told us that the aligue is best eaten when mixed with the rice. He was correct. At PHP395, the meal is delicious and also good value for money. You can also order this as a Teishoku set PHP455 (with miso soup and a side of potato salad).

We Want Wagyu!
I was amazed to see my picky eaters gobbling one wagyu piece after another. Tenya’s Holiday Wagyu (PHP595) is topped with their signature original steak sauce and also comes with a side of potato salad. Soft and very and flavorful, it’s a winner in our books!
Our burp-worthy meal also had us enjoying agedashi tofu and more ebi tempura. The son ordered this tall drink of iced coffee.
Tenya’s Christmas offers are available from now until January 8 only so hurry on to the branch nearest you! Japanese food cravings will be satisfied at the following outlets: SM Megamall, Market Market!, BGC Stopover, Paseo de Magallanes, SM MOA, Aseana City, Festival Mall, SM South Mall and soon in Tiendesitas!
