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.

The Truffle Yakiniku ($19++) hasn't changed much over the years - decently delicious, an average sized portion. However, quite disappointing to see that our request to serve the onsen egg (of another bowl, not in picture) separately was not taken seriously... It was indeed in a separate bowl, but had egg white remnants on the beef slices.

Now, if the diner requested for this & had an actual egg allergy, ... πŸ€”

Lobster Salad & Salmon Bao, which looks like a fairly new item, go at $5++ a piece during 5-8PM happy hour. Again, didn't try this but here's a pic for reference.

During 5-8PM happy hour, you can order 5 slices of salmon sashimi for $7++ (limited to 5 slices aka 1 set per drink).

I can't eat raw fish so I can't say much, only that they look fairly thick - but my dining partner said these were okay.

Oysters at $2++ a pop during 5-8PM happy hour, which is half off the usual price of $4++ a piece, if you order a drink (max 6 oysters per drink).

These were well-shucked & delightfully creamy to my preference 😍
