Bowl of rice topped with tempura. 天丼。

"Tempura donburi." Donburi is a large bowl of rice with various ingredients served on top.

Here that is the popular tempura, deep-fried pieces of battered seafood or vegetables. As tempura, usually two large shrimps are selected, possibly with the addition of some smaller items as nori or peppers. The shrimps have been dipped in soy sauce and are not as fresh as in the case of Tempura Teishoku.

Some of the broth is poured over the rice. Pickles are served on the side.
