As one of the most popular Japanese foods along with sushi, tempura has already gained global popularity. It is regularly ranked among the top in popularity votes for favorite Japanese food by foreign tourists to Japan.

Tempura is prepared by dipping seafood or vegetables in a batter made of flour, water, and egg, and then deep-frying them in vegetable oil. At high-end tempura restaurants, it is often served simply with salt to enjoy the crispiness of the freshly-cooked batter. Otherwise, tempura generally comes with tentsuyu, or slightly-sweet dipping sauce made of dashi stock, mirin, and shoyu, along with garnishes to be mixed with the sauce such as grated daikon radish and grated ginger.
