|Sitting at the tempura counter at Tenmasa, Macau|
Tenmasa serves a range of Japanese cuisines but its main focus is tempura, and appropriately, we were seated at the tempura counter.
I went all out and chose the Hibiki "deluxe tempura set", which, aside from an appetiser, sushi, sashimi and dessert, had 8 pieces of tempura. Let's make one thing clear - no matter how much you love tempura, or fried food in general, there is such thing as too much tempura, especially when your dining companion is G, who never eats a single crumb more than his stomach tells him to.

Tenmasa delivers a good experience, but don't go overboard like I did with the ordering (the grease does get to you, no matter how airy and light each piece seems), but do stick to the tempura, it's what they do best.
* I paid for none of these meals, but I asked (and was granted permission, thank you CoD) to book and go anonymously, which is the way some restaurant guides work - take from that what you will - so it's good enough for greedy ol' me.
