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. πŸ”₯ 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 β€” 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. πŸ’§

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! :)

Pictured is the Tanuki Aburi Maki that was salmon and scallop wrapped over snow crab and unagi maki - very generous rolls for $16.90! Got the Sake Honey ($12) that entitled me for the happy hour bites: $2 oysters and $5 lobster salad and salmon bao. Yums

During this particular visit - get this - we were reminded FIVE times from 20:53 - 21:12hrs that we had to leave by 21:15hrs, as that was when they were closing.

We had already been informed of this upon arrival at 19:53hrs. Reminding us once would be acceptable but 5 times in 20 mins? Especially when you can clearly see we were in very intense conversation throughout dinner? How rude.

But ayee, let me try to make the most out of this. I interpret this ferverent frequency of reminders as a reflection of how important this is to Tanuki Raw.. So here's me doing my part & making a public service announcement: To all who dine here, GTFO by 9:15PM, alright?

Our waiter was in suuuuuch a hurry to clear our table that he spilled food back on the table in his haste to do so, & didn't clear it up properly. Omg, punctuality is really so important at this outlet.

"You all are the last ones here already," he barked at us, & even rapped on our table with his knuckles to bring his point across. Ok... Can.

What a way to make your customers feel so welcomed. Not sure if any other diners had experienced this before, but I certainly hope not.
