You’ve probably eaten a lot of tempura in your life, but unless you’ve been to Japan, you’ve probably never had it like at Tempura Endo. This tiny restaurant (there are only eight seats around a bar) involves an omakase menu of perfectly fried, but also somehow light, bites passed directly to you by the chef. A meal here starts at $150, so you’re going to need some sort of excuse to visit, but once you’ve managed that, you won’t regret it.
