The large-format salt-and-pepper lobster and shrimp may actually be the most decadent tempura dish in town. Intended for three to four guests, it features six tempura-battered lobster tails and 18 shrimp, fried with garlic and chilies and finished with yuzu mayonnaise and soy glaze, $348.

Chef Beni Velazquez tosses his shishito peppers in tajin salt before frying them tempura style. He then drizzles them with dragon guava teriyaki sauce and ginger soy crema, $6.

There’s a different accompaniment for every tempura offering at this Japanese-meets-South American restaurant on the second floor of Palazzo. The shrimp and vegetable version comes with Peruvian pepper and soy dipping sauce, while the rock shrimp version comes with a unique salad, $15-$18.

Sake Rok

One of the cutest tempura presentations in town comes from this festive spot on The Park next door to T-Mobile Arena. The plating of executive chef Sung Park’s vegetable version is inspired by a garden, and arranged so guests almost appear to be “picking” their favorites, $12.

Pin Kaow

This Thai restaurant draws on some American sushi roll traditions in creating its shrimp tempura. The seafood is fried with a dose of cream cheese, and accompanied by plum sauce for dipping, $11.
