Tempura Makino opens in JEM
Tempura fans will definitely know of Tempura Makino, a specialty tempura restaurant that hails from the Hyogo Prefecture, near Kobe. They’ve got more than 10 outlets in Japan, and five in Singapore, including their latest new opening in Jem. To celebrate this new opening, diners get 30% off their total bill from 2 October to 5 October.
This is Tempura Makino’s first outlet in the West, following openings in VivoCity, Great World, Suntec City, and Jewel Changi.
They’re renowned for being the place to go for affordable, yet high-quality tempura. All the ingredients that go into preparing the tempura batter and their signature dashi, as well as their dipping sauce, are air-flown from Japan. The eggs used in the batter, for example, come from Okinawa—where some of the best Japanese eggs are farmed.
