Do you know this strange food? This is "tenkasu" which means garbage of tempura in Japanese. As you know, tempura is a popular Japanese fried item, and this tenkasu is literally the garbage from flour. In Japan, we can get tenkasu at the storefront of restaurants for free. But here in Vancouver, I have to buy it. This pack of tenkasu costs 50 cents. We use it as flavor in various dishes. A bunch of tenkasu makes udon noodles far tastier. It works just like croutons in french onion soup.


I love tenkasu! I had a hard time finding it at my local market... i thought it would be with Tempura flour... but it was in the refriderated section next to the Udon! It really adds a nice flavor to udon don;t you think?


> but it was in the refriderated section

As Tenkasu is easily oxidized in a few days, it need to be kept in a fridge.


I'm gone to say to my little brother, that he should also go to see this web site on regular basis to take updated from hottest news.
