[Relocated] Tanuki Raw (たぬき) Lunch Menu, Orchard Central

*UPDATE: Tanuki Raw relocated to level 4 of Orchard Central.

Tanuki Raw's signature dish Truffle Yakiniku Don has been generating quite a hype on instagram, after looking I know that I need to try this. Tanuki Raw delights in the raw pleasure of food and drink, offering quality yet affordable Japanese lunch bowl. They are also known for its Happy Hour (Oyster Hour) where freshly shucked oysters goes for $2, happy hour is happening daily from 5pm - 8pm.

Here on a weekend to try out their lunch bowls which is available daily from 1130am to 3pm. The set lunch features 6 types of Japanese bowl, starting from $12. There were a range of delectable selections of seasonal sashimi in the Chirashi don as well as other crowd-pleasing favorites like the Truffle Yakiniku Don.

We decided to order some sides on the ala carte menu which is available anytime. Being a fan of salmon skin, this is definitely a must order for me. Here's Fried Salmon Skin $5, served along with garlic lime chili sauce. It was an interesting accompaniment of the 'Chinese' sauce with the crispy fried salmon skins. For 5 bucks, it's rather affordable too for fried salmon skins.

On the menu selection of 'How We Roll' which is also known as sushi rolls, feature 7 types of sushi. We went ahead with the interesting ones like American Roll $10, also called Cheeseburger sushi. The roll is packed with cheddar cheese, sliced beef, pickles and deep fried after.

The sauce that was slightly torched at the top taste similar to Manhattan's flaming prawns. Ketchup and mustard sauce is drizzle at the side of the plate to exhibit the American food culture.

One of the beverages that is featured in the set lunch menu, here's Lychee Fizz $5. A mixed of lychee puree, soda water and fresh lime. A refreshing drink for the hot weather though nothing fantastic in this.

Truffle Yakiniku Don $14.80 from the set lunch, note that price for this will be slightly higher for dinner. Onsen tomago egg over the black angus short rib that has been pan seared with a dollop of truffle soy sauce. 

I personally love the black angus short rib which is tender and flavourful with fats on the edge. The onsen egg was unfortunately wasn't runny enough but it definitely goes well with the sesame rice grains. Being a red meat lover, this is definitely my favorite for lunch. A good example that good food doesn't have to be costly.

I have to admit that Tanuki Raw offers some of the best value lunch along Orchard Road, affordable and of quality. If you do take beef or raw salmon, there are other options such as the Yakitori Don and Tanuki Curry Don which is served over crispy deep fried chicken cutlet. Classic cocktails, wines and beer on draught are available all day, great place to chill on the al fresco balcony overlooking Orchard Road.

The newly launched lunch menu at Tanuki Raw is available from 1130am to 3pm daily, with a selections of modern Japanese rice bowls starting from $12.
