Many hold Tanuki Raw in high regard not only because of their enticing happy hours and their affordable oysters, but mainly because these folks know how to guarantee a fun time through their remarkably innovative grub and tipples.
These are the same folks who inspired and more importantly popularised the low-cost Yakiniku Donburi—a heady bowl of sushi rice topped with strips of Angus short rib, doused in a truffle sauce and topped with a wobbly onsen egg.
Don’t think for a minute that this is some ordinary sushi and sashimi eatery because it’s not—just don’t forget to take advantage of their signature daily raw bar—their original claim to fame—that features top of the line oysters, freshly shucked for enjoyment.
The restaurant sees two open concept areas where chefs and bartenders alike can be seen expertly doing their thing from shucking oysters by the boxes to flame torching an assortment of rice bowls and even shaking some magnificent tipples.
Loyal patrons would tell you that Tanuki Raw is best for their impeccable range of donburi which—unsurprisingly—also happens to be their bestsellers. If you are having trouble deciding which to pick, then you cannot go wrong with the Truffle Yakiniku (S$18++), Salted Duck Egg Char Siew (S$18++) and Tanuki Kaisen Chirashi (S$24.90++).
Save your stomach for more because Tanuki Raw’s decadent sushi rolls are perfect for sharing as well. Some options to consider include Tanuki Aburi Maki (S$14.90++), Superstar Roll (S$12.90++) and The California Roll (S$8.90++).
