value for money quality beef bowl
Tanuki Raw first attracted me with their happy hour promotion - $2/oyster with any cocktail ordered. Located on the second level of Orchard Central, it’s hard to miss Tanuki Raw and its long queue during peak hours.
Tanuki Raw is well known for their happy hour promotion and their truffle yakuniku don, so obviously, I just had to jump on the bandwagon. There is always an overwhelming scent of truffle at Tanuki Raw, probably because of their famous truffle yakiniku. Priced at $18, Tanuki Raw serves pan seared US black angus short rib on their signature mixed rice, topped with an onsen egg and truffle soy sauce. I enjoyed the melt-in-the-mouth beef however I felt that the seasoned rice was way too salty, it was tough finishing the entire serving. The oysters were the most disappointing, they were so tiny and flat, I could hardly bite on it. For $2 an oyster in Singapore, you really pay for what you get.
The only dish worth returning for would be their beef bowl and definitely not the oysters. I’d like to try their sushi rolls in the future as well.
