Ah . . . I was almost right, then. I love seafood! And veggies! Yey, I'm starting to like their food already. Yum. Not sure about the whole deep-fried thing, though . . . I generally prefer my fish au natural and my veggies as they were found in the ground (minus the dirt, obviously).
I agree, but tempura is actually quite light despite being deep fried. They actually have fried shrimp here called "ebi fry" and it's completely different from tempura shrimp. Perhaps it's the batter? I dunno.
