* Tempura chicken!
* My uncle made this stuff for us all the time during the Lunar New Year, and we asked him to buy us some batter mix. I used to make it for dinner at least twice a month. cat_3nodding

        * I love tempura green tea ice cream, it's heavenly.
        It depends on the cake you use to hold the green tea ice cream in though, I usually use 7-up cake or something that isn't extremely rich like chocolate cake.
        First of all; I'm a huge fan of green tea flavored anything, and then when you add cake and tempura batter, it's amazing.
        Huge thumbs up from me.

Dude! I totally had tempura for dinner and I didn't even know about this. What a fantabulous coincidence.

And as it happens my dinner tonight included my favorite type of tempura: shrimp. And it was in udon soup. Really, that's my favorite way to eat tempura; in soup. And so, my official entry:

*Username: killer_purple_froggy
* Favorite type of tempura dish: Almost any type of tempura (but especially shrimp) in soup
* Brief description of why i love it: It gets all soggy instead of being crispy--also, it's kind of like a game to keep it from falling apart and slipping off of my chopsticks.

* Zucchini tempura
* I can't eat shrimp tempura, so this is my primary option when I visit a café. I loved it because it's a crunchy vegetable. It would add up my daily servings of vegetable.

I have another favorite dish that I'll tell tomorrow.

*Favorite type of tempura dish: I like them all! But I must say I like shrimp tempura over all the rest.
*Brief description of why you love it: Mmm usually I don't like shrimp! Especially when it's just boiled, unless it's super fresh. But when it has the tempura batter it tastes soo yummy! It's so light and crispy and full of fried goodness.... heart

* Favorite type of tempura dish: Tempura Bell Peppers
* I first fell in love with it in college, one of the on campus restaurants made it and it was perfect...the batter had a good bread taste to it, but was still light, and the peppers themselves retained their crispiness. I was not one to like peppers, especially if they were by themselves...but I could eat these with no problems!

And yup, just made myself want some of those!

* Favorite type of tempura dish: Green Bean Tempura. This treat is especially near to my heart since the tempura was introduced in Japan in this form by the first Europeans to arrive there, the Portuguese. The original dish that was taken there and created the famous Japanese tempura is still very popular here in Portugal. It is also my favourite kind of tempura and it consists of Green Bean pods lightly fried in delicious batter. The Portuguese name of this treat is "Peixinhos da Horta" which literally means "Garden Fishies".

* Brief description of why you love it! I love it because it is delicious, tasty, and generally healthy. You take a bite and it's crunchy and squishy. And I love veggies emotion_drool It is also a food that reminds me of my childhood and the simplicity of happier, carefree times.
