Truffle Yakiniku Donburi

Somewhat similar to the Foie Gras Truffle don, just without the foie gras. Breaking open the onsen egg, together with a mouthful of the flavoured rice, perfectly seared beef with a hint of Truffle taste; ahhhhh the perfect masterpiece waiting to be devoured

Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku $23

When I burst the onsen egg, the thick yolk oozes and fused with the truffle perfectly. The wagyu slices were pink and tender, drenched in truffle soy. But the show stopper was generous slab of pan-seared foie gras, glistening perfection that melts in your mouth. Each grain of Tanuki signature mixed rice is covered with the black garlic brown butter. Brb, I'm in heaven.

Donburi, Be Happy!

Yes yes yes! This $16 bowl of goodness is exactly what I was looking for to satisfy me. A perfectly tender pan-fried chicken cutlet covered in garlic brown butter teriyaki sauce, sitting on top of mixed mushrooms and Tanuki Raw's signature rice. The hype is real people! Get amongst it!

Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku ($23)

My arteries might be crying out, but they know very well that it's all worth it. My first bite of the pan-seared foie gras with a little bit of the rice covered in the onsen egg just melted in my mouth, leaving a lingering taste of the subtle truffle soy sauce flavor. Boy, it was heavenly!

I'll personally prefer a deeper char on the edges of the US black angus short rib, but this dish is already a contender for the best dish I've had this year! Give me more please!!

Are you hungry?

😋


How about a bowl of Garlic Butter Chicken? ($16+) // Pan-fried cutlet, garlic brown butter teriyaki sauce, mixed mushrooms over Tanuki Raw's signature rice..

#ThrowbackThursday Dinner w @thegrowingbelly // It was a great meet-up, see you soon💕

It's time for Cold Brew Saturdays!

Pretty taste white cold brew ($5) for @tanukibar at Kapok - creamy with a good hint of sweetness ☕️

Yakiniku Truffle Beef Bowl

😳

The rice do adds up as a bonus though, the rice was the bomb, with the runny egg on top and pickles. The only thing that was disappointing to me was the meat I would say. 🙀

Have a good Saturday everyone! Hashtag #thegrowingbelly to share your meals with us! We want to know what you are having this weekend! 💖

Truffle yakiniku don ($18) 🐮 • Pan-seared US black angus short rib, onsen egg and truffle soy sauce over Tanuki Raw's signature rice.


With so much hype surrounding it, i was eager to try it out and see for myself.
However.....despite it being the signature item, this donburi was absolutely disappointing. i feel that it was lacklustre & 'underwhelming'. The beef wasn't mind-blowing awesome in terms of taste & texture. The onsen egg wasn't runny. The truffle soy sauce was barely existence. 🌟The only highlight of the bowl was the rice🌟

DONBURI BE HAPPY.

Negitoro don ($18). Chopped Tuna and scallops with fried black garlic chips and that perfect onsen egg.

Sea Urchin Donut ($21.90).

This creative snack actually came with uni on top of a donut. It's also dressed with sour cream and soy dressing, and topped with an onsen egg.
🔸
Very promising dish but several problem with this. One, the uni was fishy and wasn't very fresh. Second, this bizarre combination don't work for me, the donut was probably too heavy for uni, and I can't make sense of how the sour cream, soy dressing and burnt leek is supposed to complement one another seamlessly.
🔸
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the donut on its own, as I creamed it with the sour cream and lifted with some umami from the bonito flakes.

Chirashi Don

I don't eat raw food. But I ate this!!! So fresh that it's tasty!!!! I ate all of it haha. The crowd was abit loud tho so we had to go somewhere else to chill after eating.

Tanuki Raw - Mini Salted Duck Egg Char Siew Sliders (💵S$15.90 for 3) : Thick-cut Tanuki style Char Siew, Tomatoes, Fresh Greens, Umami Gruyere & Tangy oko sauce stacked in house-made katsu-crusted brown butter buns.

🍔

The brown butter buns are light & crispy, Char Siew was definitely a thick cut, the sauce was done nicely. Overall it was average, nothing much to shout about. Pretty decent. 🏵

ACAMASTIPS💮: If you dine at Tanuki Raw, choose their "Creations by Tanuki" instead of "Tanuki's Must Try Donburis" as the standard have dropped a notch. 🖖🏻

Tanuki Raw - Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku (💵S$23)

Pan-Seared Foie Gras, US Black Angus short rib, Onsen Egg, Truffle Soy, black garlic brown butter over Tanuki's signature rice.

One just can't go wrong with the classic combination of Foie Gras, Short Rib & an Onsen Egg on a bed of rice. Sadly however, it lacked Character, Depth & Soul.
Tanuki Raw once used to be not a bad place to get your Donburi fix. But the magic's gone.

ACAMASTIPS💮: Do not hold back when you decide to enjoy a bowl of really good Truffle/Beef Donburi. Some places like Sushi Jin, Aoki, Tatsuya & others have a pretty high price tag for it. 💸
But trust me (at least this once), it'll be worth it. Your soul will thank you. 🖖🏻

Salmon Kaisen Don

Lunchtime menu well-worth.
Good portion of sashimi and pan-seared salmon, and a just-right amount of salty ikura. It was a huge bowl of rice too.

Salmon Kaisen don gon make me 开心!
$14.90 { +$2 miso soup & salad ]

Generous Rice Bowls Of Satisfaction

With pocket-friendly lunch prices and beautiful plated presentation, it's no wonder why Tanuki Raw is still going strong on Instagram. Covered in succulent pan-fried short ribs and a wobbly onsen egg, their Truffle Yakiniku ($14.90++) is a sure crowd-pleaser. The Garlic Butter Chicken ($12.90++) is also a safe bet for people who prefer traditional Japanese flavours.
