Asparagus Bacon Tempura

@ mirandablue
I was faint from hunger when I got to MoA one Saturday afternoon after an extended meeting in Pasay City.  With lots of restaurants to choose from, I decided on Kimono Ken because I haven't tried them before.  Red Kimono is one of my favorite haunts at The Fort, and I don't know if both "Kens" are related.

I love asparagus and I love bacon--and a combination of both balanced out my conscience.:p I like the concept of a bacon-wrapped asparagus, problem is, the tough stems were included.  When I bit into the roll, it was like fighting with the stringy fiber--not a pleasant experience.

@ mirandablue
The overall taste was OK...if only the succulent, tender part of asparagus was included in this dish.

I love asparagus and I love bacon, but I never had them together like this. Must be super delicious.

I am a BOG fan of tender asparagus. Bacon? Not so much. :)

Asparagus and bacon, lovely combination, but I agree, Mommy, you would have enjoyed it more if the stems are tender. Happy FTF! Here's my entry: http://www.delightmyappetite.com/2011/07/food-trip-friday-penang-hill/
