I was strolling through the deli section of Ito Yokado supermarket and looking at the options on hand when this bowl of shrimp tempura caught my eye. One reason why this particular market is more interesting than most is that they put calorie values on the food and this moderate sized bowl of shrimp tempura over rice with pickles packs a whopping 969 calories. I've talked to students before and they insist tempura isn't unhealthy because it's cooked at high temperatures. I remain dubious, especially after seeing things like this for sale.
