Very addictive. These salmon chicharrones are fried with nori crisps and spiced with curry, with beer cheese dips provided on the side. I love the curry seasoning, perfect when crispy!

Perfectly seared beef slices with such whole egg. The hint of truffle in the sauce just sealed the deal for me. How could I only have just gone to this place now??
The foie gras is passable but IMO not completely necessary. Wasn’t blown away by it but couldn’t find much fault with it either.

Tanuki Raw is no stranger to many. With thousands of pictures of their Truffle Yakiniku Donburi flying all over the internet for the past few years, this place had better be good.

To save your wallet, go during the lunch time to enjoy their donburi at a lower price. Contrary to popular choice, I got the Salmon Kaisendon lunch set ($12.90 + $2) which came with salmon done four ways - fresh, torched, torched with mentaiko, and tossed in spicy sauce - miso soup, salad, and green tea. I loved that the salmon was fresh and generous, and the miso soup was uniquely tasty. Their signature mixed rice laced with black sesame seeds and crispy bits was also very fragrant, but it was difficult to stomach after a few mouths as the rice was really dry. I would definitely appreciate if they could drizzle some sauce over the rice (perhaps a shoyu-based sauce for those with sashimi, or even an onsen egg would be good).

Definitely a popular place for the office workers dropping by for filling lunch and socialising after work hours over their bar snacks and drinks.

Pretty well done with a good portion of crunch on top. Could have been slightly more generous with the mentaiko sauce but overall it's def worth a try!

Salmon Don with Set, $14.90++, it's worth! Salmon fans should try this!

Healthy and yummy😋 perfect portion of protein topped with their special rice! The protein was perfectly cooked and tender. Their food came pretty quickly too. Just be prepared to queue for like > 30 mins if you come during the peak hours!

Ordered the mains and an extra “cake + a drinks set” at $15
Their salted egg sauce is not too heavy... Cake was surprisingly yummy!

A bowl packed full of sashimi! Uni, tuna, negitoro, salmon, scallops, swordfish... the list goes on! It’s a good dish if you want to try different types of sashimi, but I was a little confused after a couple of bites as to what I was eating...

A crunchy taco shell filled with spicy fatty tuna, avocado, tomato, onions, and lettuce, I expected quite a lot from Tanuki Raw’s Negitoro Herumetto ($14). Yet...aside from the interesting ‘taco shell’ (essentially tempura-ed nori sheets as far as I can tell), the flavours in all were downright disappointing. The lettuce wasn’t entirely dry and held pockets of water; wee drizzle of spicy sauce too little to support the tasteless unseasoned tuna; and I really don’t get why cheap Kraft-like processed cheese is used for this — it clashes with the spicy sauce, does nothing to support the tuna, and really just stands out like a sore thumb.

They took quite awhile to serve us this bowl of goody. Scallops were really fresh with a tinge of sweetness. Unagi was pretty normal, but the foie gras was really good for the price you paid. Nothing much to complain about, hearty bowl of lunch!

The beef yakiniku slices was really well-cooked, combining with the right amount of animal fats. Onsen egg was meant to be broke and stir in together with the rice below to give off more fragance to it!

Food was pretty good, but service kind of left much to be desired... 🤷🏻‍♂ #burpple

Finally tried tanuki raw at somerset!!☺️ this salmon don was $16 and it was super delicious and fresh!! Portion size was just right too👍🏻 i didnt get to try other items as i was rushing off to somewhere else but the other items on the menu sounds great too! However, its a little pricey for some as items may go up to $30+ per bowl and the queue for it may be half an hour or longer if you come after 6:30pm☹️ do give this restaurant a try and judge for urself! But for me, ill rate the overall experience an 8/10☺️

Lunch time prices make this bowl so SO worth!! The beef slices were cooked to tender perfection and infused with truffle! The onsen egg on top makes the dish a bit more wholesome together with their special rice. Truly comfort food.

Da Salmon to my don!
.
Tried out this bowl of don at Tanuki Raw @ Orchard Central! Rice topped with delicious salmon. Indeed a fulfilling meal!
.

.
Not only these that are available, There are also many varieties of Dons and food to choose from. Menus dishes are cheaper if you dine during their happy hours!
.
Really recommended!
