WORLD-FAMOUS “TEN-DON” COMING TO WAIKIKI: Tempura Bowls by Kaneko Hannosuke Will Be Your New Favorite Go-To Meal

(Honolulu, HI)—Those raised in a Japanese household, quickly learn that a “ten-don” is not a fibrous connective tissue but rather a fabulous meal of tempura served up over a bowl of hot rice. The Kaneko Hannosuke ten-don, however, is truly a work of art.

So who or what is Kaneko Hannosuke? Hannosuke (first name) Kaneko (last name) was a renowned Japanese chef, serving as the second chairman of “Isshin-kai,” a prestigious Japanese chef’s association. His passion for Japanese cuisine led to a deep-dive, leading to innovative creations, the recipes of which he kept in a book called “Enma-Cho”; his grandson Shinya Kaneko eventually inherits and discovers a family secret—the recipe for his now signature (and secret) “Edomae” sauce. After many trials and errors, Shinya Kaneko found the perfect dish to pair with the sauce—a substantial array of tempura over a bowl of rice. Recognizing that the key to his success was the inherited recipe, Shinya names his restaurants after his grandfather.

The Edomae Tendon comes in three parts. The first is a gourmand’s dream selection of tempura: Anago (conger eel), shrimp, squid and soft boiled egg, along with an assortment of other Japanese vegetables. The second is the high-quality rice, piping hot. The Edomae secret sauce–the final component–brings together the flavors of the hot, crispy, savory dish with a hint of sweet umami.

Find tempura bowls and tempura plates ranging from $9.98 – $18.98. You can even order a keiki set for the little ones (under 10).

While Hannosuke shops have cropped up within Mitsuwa Market in New Jersey, Chicago, Torrance, and Santa Monica, the Honolulu branch of Kaneko Hannosuke is slated to open in the new YOKOCHO at Waikiki Shopping Plaza, which is due to open mid-January 2017.
