Tendon Kohaku is set to open a location in downtown Vancouver.

The Japanese chain of tempura eateries will be going into a large space at Howe and Smithe, just across the street from the Law Courts.

According to their signage, the eatery is named after “amber” like the gem, which is meant to represent the golden battered tempura “fried to amber perfection.”

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 the Philippines and Malaysia too.

This brand’s specialty is the Edomae Tendon, its most popular tempura rice bowl. Its locations typically offer tiger prawn tempura, chicken breast tempura, shiitake mushroom, crabstick, squid, baby corn, green beans, and more.

We’ll keep you posted when this spot reveals its opening date, in the meantime, head down to famous Japanese tendon tempura chain Kaneko Hannosuke on Robson Street if you’re having a craving.

Address: 190 Howe Street, Vancouver
