Tendon Kohaku is set to open its first Canadian location in downtown Vancouver, and soon at that. Dished Vancouver was the first inside the new outpost of the chain, known for its “fried to amber perfection” tempura bowls and sides like Nagoya-style chicken wings, Sashimi salad, and more.
This concept is located at 109-840 Howe Street and offers a gorgeous space for diners to step into when they are craving its famous tendon eats.
Light-coloured wood, dried florals and grasses, and big bright windows are all features of this dining room.

The eatery is named after “amber,” like the gem, which is meant to represent the golden battered tempura — and they certainly deliver just that.
Kohaku also has two secret sauces that make its grub that much more delicious: a Kohaku Sauce and a house Spicy Sauce. Both sauces are made with over 15 ingredients and boiled for 10 hours before they are served.
This brand offers six different varieties of tempura rice bowls including Seafood, Veggie (also the option to make this vegan), and Sashimi, to name a few. All bowls come with a miso soup and pickled ginger, and the patron can choose between Japanese premium white rice or wholegrain.
There’s also the option to make any bowl spicy.
In addition to the bowls, this concept offers an array of smaller plates, cold beverages like milk teas, and desserts such as Matcha Soft Serve Ice Cream and Japanese Strawberry Cheesecake.
Kohaku is a joint venture from two giant Japanese food corporations: Nadai Fujisoba (the largest soba chain in Japan) and the Kings Know Group.
Kohaku’s first location opened in Singapore and it now operates several other outposts in Tokyo, Taiwan, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
This spot is set to soft launch on March 29 to 31 from noon to 8 pm.
The grand opening will be on April 2, and over its opening weekend (April 2 to 4) Tendon Kohaku will offer 25% off the entire menu, all day long.
Opening hours for the grand opening weekend are April 2 from 11 am to 10 pm and April 3 and 4 from 11:30 am to 10 pm.
