Tempura Motoyoshi 天ぷら元吉 — it’s been over 3 years since my last visit and I was thoroughly impressed by the quality, techniques, and originality. Most interesting was gobo 4 ways, burdock with coffee powder was definitely unexpected but worked well.•

First time at this reputed rising star. It's been so long since I last had a great tempura meal, and this was definitely what I had been looking for. Very light batter, great ingredients, just fantastic!

Great tempura starts with pristine ingredients.

One of my favorite stores in Tokyo, @tempura_motoyoshi, is now being run by Matoba-san, while Motoyoshi-san builds out his new location.

Chef has kept all the quality, the creativity, and the skill. One of my must-go shops.

Young and innovative. Motoyoshi continues to amaze. The product super fresh and of the highest quality. The batter light and crips, the flower treated with liquid nitrogen before blending it to make the batter. The fish and seafood pristine and very tasty. All of this in a very relaxed and hospitable environment. Tempura at its best.

Another excellent dinner at Tempura Motoyoshi. Rather than luxury ingredients, he’s really innovating with technique and combinations. Extremely friendly, good cost performance, and a greet eye for ceramics as well. The more I eat in Tokyo, the more I notice everything “around” the meal, not just the food on the plate. It’s up to you if that matters or not.

My favorite tempura in Tokyo, at least so far. Motoyoshi-san is doing some really interesting things, drawing outside the lines, as it were. Quite friendly, as well. I enjoy his signature uni, served raw on a fried leaf, rather than wrapped.

Innovative, creative and very tasty. The tempura from Motoyoshi is in the top of Japan.

A few highlights from a delightful dinner at Tempura Motoyoshi. While this time of year features a lot more root vegetables, he was still able to pull out a lot of delicate flavor.

Dinner at Tempura Motoyoshi. A delicious and interesting meal watching a master craftsman at work.

Down a little stairway, on the backside of a building, I might have found my new favorite tempura restaurant. Motoyoshi was elegant, inventive, and deft. The fried/raw combo pieces were particularly interesting. Also, never had myoga or yuba tempura before. Both excellent.
