{swoon} Tendon (天丼) at Hannosuke

Hannosuke - Los Angeles (Mar Vista)

When executed with a deft hand, deep-frying can transform the mundane into the insane. Tokyo’s famed Kaneko Hannosuke takes tendon (tempura rice bowls) to great heights at its first U.S. outlet inside the West Los Angeles Mitsuwa Marketplace.

On recent visits to Connie Cossio’s Inglewood mariscos spot, I’ve been falling hard for the camarones borrachos, drunken shrimp that seduce with a garlicky punch followed by a slow, lingering burn.
