Finally tried Tanuki Raw after its revamp on my day off. The Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku Bowl ($19.90 if you order between 11.30am-3pm; otherwise $23) came loaded with a decent-sized seared goose liver, thinly sliced US black angus short rib and an onsen egg on top of their signature seasoned rice and elevated with truffle soy & black garlic brown butter - a mishmash of flavours and texture that made this heaven in a bowl.
Virgin try for bingsu and I would say that it is not a disappointment. Garlic cheese toast is good but slightly too garlicy. Not a bad choice after all, maybe the cheese one will be wiser 😄
Bingsu: chocolate banana
Toast: garlic cheese
You are not going to miss this for the world... even the NDP can wait (oops). I'm sure Lolla is now synonymous with this dish and that's what pops up when you google either of these words. Having waited longer than I would with trying this delicacy would be what I am really regretting. That said I am not a big uni fan until I tasted it served at Niji (now closed). This pudding made of mainly squid ink, egg yolk, cream and tomato purée really lives up to expectations. Even my partner whom I would never imagine her taking uni, said it gives this appetizer a unique flavor that is hard to describe..."Ummmmph, I'd need another spoonful to tell you" she quipped.
Never imagined the interior of Boca to look so gorgeous. The ambience here is so on point, it's a perfect setting for a cosy gathering. And of course, the food here will not disappoint.
What a great surprise to find this on the way to IKEA. Full of energy from this non-ending "Mala" punchy taste on the tongue! 10 dumplings for 5$
Certainly very satisfied with the dish that I ordered. Served with greens and mash potatoes that complements the steak well. The flavorful sauce will really make you drool in sight!
Happy to hear that they opened one outlet near my office, so rushed there right away at lunch time. Tremendously enjoyed the Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku, super yummy! 😍😋😋 Pan seared foie gras drenched in amazing black garlic brown butter, tender-melt-in-your-mouth US black angus short ribs drizzled with truffle soy and onsen egg in the middle. The truffle soy sauce is a bit too mild for me, perhaps not many people like strong tastes (in many things) as i do. But apart from that, it's an excellent mix of flavours and tastes all together. It is $19 for lunch (u.p. $23) and i took the lunch set additional $2 for miso soup, mixed green salad and green tea. Highly recommended! Any recommendations for similar donburi are most welcome.
