For dinner it's about $18. The fish is fresh and good. Just like the usual Tanuki standard. I still think it's a better deal eating this during the lunch hour which is definitely much cheaper.

This is their chirashi don with their signature mix rice. As usual their fish is fresh and goes well with the rice. I think it's a decent meal at $19.00.

First bite in and you’ll definitely be able to tell that the slow braised beef was well-marinated with its deep soy umami flavours diffusing in each mouth! 🥺 I particularly liked how the beef weren’t sinew and was relatively tender with a slight chew. Rice was cooked to perfection - fluffy and well doused with sauce. 🙌
🍚
However, the yolk seemed to make the rice tad watery. 😱 I would also prefer consistency in its meat as some beef cubes were spicy while other parts weren’t. 🧐 Was also expecting a more complex flavour too as it turned out quite monotonous.
🍚
Nevertheless, it’s a decent meal with adequate serving and taste for $10++! It works perfectly as a quick-fix lunch when you’re craving for something slightly atas too. 🥳 Get the salmon bowl instead! 👌

For only $10, it comes with myraid variety of thicc and generous serving salmon slices. The fresh salmon pieces served was fresh and silky smooth, and surprisingly, with a hint of charred fragrance due to the aburi salmon beside it. 🔥 The mentaiko was creamy, though slightly lacklustre as I hoped that it could be more seared and stronger tasting. Rice was served with an extra OOMPH due to the addition of seasoning but it also comes with an acquired taste which some may not be used to. The entire dish was elevated with a dollop of of ikura — providing the flavours reminiscent of the sea with its savouriness and umami. Last but definitely not a fact to missed, did you know that Tanuki Raw uses freshly grated wasabi? Although it wasn’t as pungent, it’s still a lethal tear jerker which left me crying for tissue after every bite of the addictive spice. 💧
🐟
For a price like none other, and a satisfying lunch bowl packed with only the generosity of Tanuki Raw, I guess I’m proud to announce that I’ve found my next favourite lunch spot. 😳
🐟
Fun fact: I tried the decorative leaf too. 😬

Salmon Kaisen Don - $10

I always wanted to try Tanuki Raw but hesitant due to the price. Luckily they offer affordable lunch special at $10 only! Salmon sashimi lover like myself definitely will pick salmon kaisen rice bowl. 4 type of salmon sashimi presentation to keep your appetite going. Small portion of ikura added texture and flavours into the rice bowl. Really is shiok flavours shiok price

Still recall the first time I had foie gras, it was at Tanuki Raw. The way the duck liver just melts away in my mouth in fatty goodness.

Meat quality was alright, nice flavour in the beef atop a nice bed of white rice. Oysters were on promotion, plump and fresh! Sashimi slices were thick and fatty, melts in the mouth as well.

A good place to have a meal if I’m around the area! :)
