Hi, I would like to know what's normally the ingredient used in tempura sold in tenya/shop. I know its generally seafood and veggies. How about the oil normally use to fry the tenpura?

Thank you

TenYa is a tendon (rice bowl topped with tenpura) chain-store.
I think you want tenpura restaurants?

In general, tenpura contain no meat.
But TenYa sell some untraditional/modern meat-tenpura like chicken, pork and so on.
Even they in general put into no meat.

If you want to try tenpura, TenYa is reasonable and not so bad.
Their stores are everywhere in Tokyo, and they said they have English menu.
