Grilled Mentaiko Cod Bowl

Wasn't my intention to order this but by a twist of fate, I was destined to meet you - GMCB. Such beautifully grilled crimson yellow cod fillet laid seductively on a bowl of steamed rice, so how can I say no. The fillet's complexion was from the mentaiko (cod roe) spreaded on, like placenta to the skin, giving it that radiant, definition and succulence. The rice used are unpolished grains to give it that unsuperflous, raw yet wholesomeness. It's down to the details that the rice are best served cooled to room temperature everytime, to preserve the texture that every mouthful is carb-worthy.

Unagi Hotate Foie Gras Bowl

This is what happens when you combine 3 delicacy into one bowl - grilled teriyaki eel, aburi (torched) scallops and pan-fried duck liver. All done at amazingly delicate attention. So much umami in every mouth and complements the mixed-grain rice and the sauce, oh dear, makes me wanna...wanna....eat it all. And just what were you expecting to happen!

Unagi Foie Gras Donburi (SGD $23.90) @ Tanuki Raw.

One of their best sellers, with good reason. Fluffy seasoned sushi rice, covered in shredded tamago / egg, along with smoky grilled unagi / eel, marinated in a house recipe.
A fatty slab of decadent foie gras, with a slight crisp exterior and a near creamy interior completes this. So good.

Beef Sliders (SGD $16.90) @ Tanuki Raw.

Thin sliced beef sirloin, pan-fried in house-made yakiniku sauce.
Stacked between buttermilk rye brioche bread, with juicy tomato, crunchy lettuce, gruyere cheese, button mushrooms, and earthy truffle mayonnaise.
Each bit is juicy, meaty, and messy. Yum.

[New Menu] Hokkaido Kaisen Don ($34.90/$39.90++ for lunch/dinner).

I knew I was going to get this as I trust Tanuki to serve raw dishes at affordable prices. They started off being a raw bar (hence "Tanuki Raw"), I think!
Inside this bowl of underwater freshness is a whole lot of premium Japanese raw seafood - uni, snow crab, marinated ikura, scallops and salmon, served with shredded tamago over Tanuki's signature brown rice. If you love their salmon, you can head over to Salmon Samurai for a whole lot of salmon choices, but it's here that you'll get that snow crab which is fresh and sweet, and that whole row of creamy uni.

Truffle Yakiniku

Tanuki Raw has been highly praised by the people around me and I'm super glad it didn't disappoint.

This is hands down one of the best beef bowls you will ever have here in Singapore. I'm absolutely in love with and crazy over how flavorful every single element of the dish was. Even the rice had flavor to it, unlike many other places selling beef bowls! An oozy onsen egg along with tender and well-cooked short ribs, this rice bowl really had no flaws.

Sadly, it's really costly though so I would highly recommend going during lunch hour for their lunch promos โ˜บ๏ธ

Tanuki Raw.

Salted duck egg char Siew. Not exactly tender seasoned nagono pork belly char Siew, onsen egg, mixed mushroom and golden salted duck egg hollandaise sauce over sushi rice.

truffle something something ($14.90)

Minus sushi roll cos they take a very long time to make that. Why though..... ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tanuki Raw.

Superstar roll. Mentaiko sauce negitoro over crispy mozzarella cheese, topped with seasoned tempura flakes and tanuki raw's oko sauce. I like that the tempura flakes gives this sushi roll that extra crunch which is unlike normal sushi.

What have happened to tanuki raw?

Or issit this outlet? I rmbed i had very yummy superstar maki ($11.90++) in the past that i used to raved about it. Then i realised, both OC and Kapok outlet have the same name dish but they do it differently. OC ones use seared salmon while Kapok one use Negitoro. Im probably not a fan of negitoro. Appreciate more if they can name it differently for a somewhat same dish.
Ordered other dishes like unagi foie gras ($23.90++), butter chicken don ($16++), Yakiniku Don ($18++), salted egg char siew don ($18++), Wham! Fries ($11.90++) and sweet potato truffle fries ($11.90++). Nth to rave about. But we pretty like the sweet potato truffle fries. Wham! Fries was kinda too sweet for our liking. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป2/5

Tanuki Raw.

Chirashi don. There's a mix of seasonal and staple fresh sashimi such as sea bream, tuna, swordfish, salmon, striped jack, and salmon roe, seasoned with their signature sauce, served with Tamago and sushi rice. Everything is so fresh too. They mixed up my order and serve mine with salad though so they gave me an extra bowl of rice with no extra charge. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Superstar Roll ($12.90++)

The donburis and chirashi dons are the main stars at @tanukiraw but there's still enough room in the spotlight for the Superstar Roll ($12.90++): Mentaiko sauce drizzled over seared salmon and crispy mozzarella cheese, topped with seasoned tempura flakes and Tanuki's oko sauce #burpplesushimonth

Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku donburi ($23++)

Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku donburi ($23++) at Tanuki Raw. Contains pan seared foie gras, US black angus short rib, onsen egg, truffle soy and black garlic brown butter over Tanuki Raw's Signature Rice. The signature rice was really tasty but as for the rest of the bowl (excluding the onsen egg of course) it seemed pretty average to me

Truffled Foie Gras Wagyu Yakiniku Don

Perfect satisfaction in a bowl: medium rare seared yakiniku resting on a bed of truffled sushi rice, embedded onsen egg, and grilled foie gras. I like the texture of the rice, which has that barley like texture and grainy fragrance.
