Yamaimo no Tempura


Yamaimo no tempura.


It is tempura of Yamaimo(sticky sweet potato).

I looked up "Yamaimo" in English-Japanese dictionary but I couldn't find exact thing.

This potato has black peel and is so sticky and thready when peeled...

Does someone knows uniq name of it?

I wanted to attach the photo but actually this Yamaimo no Tempura is frozen instant food. So I couldn't attach.

I like any Tempura, what is best tempura for me is..

1st. Ebi(prawn) tempura
2nd. Pumpkin
3rd. Chikuwa-Isobe tempura(Japanese fish sausage tempura with seaweed flavor I will introduce it later with photo)

What kind of tempura is popurar at Japanese restaurant in your country?

Is yamaimo the equivalent to "yuca"?
My favorite is also shrimp tempura, but I also like sweet potato and pumpkin.
