Trying Tenya Lokal, Tenya’s farm-to-table Japanese menu

I first tried Tenya back in 2016, when they were fairly new here in Metro Manila. We’ve also eaten at their branch in Akihabara so I can say that the local franchise is spot-on in terms of presentation, taste, and food quality. We all know that almost all business sectors have been hard-hit by the pandemic and so Tenya recently launched its farm-to-table initiative, Tenya Lokal. Tenya has mostly used ingredients imported from Japan but with Tenya Lokal, they will be sourcing directly from local farmers and fisherfolk.

This local procurement of ingredients is also reflected in the pricing of the Tenya Lokal menu — Donburi prices start at P165 per order, Noodles and Maki sets at P125 per order, and Bento sets at P195 per order. Hubby and I went to take out some food from Tenya earlier today and I can say that the Tenya Lokal prices are much lower compared to the regular menu where a Donburi costs P300+.

If you can’t go to a Tenya branch, Tenya is available at GrabFood, Foodpanda, and Pickaroo so you can easily order for delivery.
