Heyo back with another food review of Tanuki Raw where T and I had for our anniversary the other time! Firstly, the food was pretty good. I had the Truffle Yakiniku Don (18) while T had the the Yakitori Don (18). Both had a healthy portion of meat with furikake rice. In my opinion I could do without the furikake rice cause it made the whole meal a little too salty? Though once I literally swallowed the beef the furikake rice proved yummy on its own. The truffle flavor is very subtle and blends well with the taste of egg yolk. The beef was a little chewy ( was expecting melt in your mouth :-() but nonetheless seasoned well! For T, his yakitori was very very yummy with juicy chicken that wasn’t overly saucy which you find in many other teriyaki chicken dishes else where.

Sides: We ordered an order of oysters, salmon sashimi, as well as the caveman roll. Oysters were fresh and the pickled topping was very nice to give a fresh bite to the rich oyster flavor. The caveman roll was my favourite!! It was cuts of raw beef, still red and juicy, with a wasabi mayo that I absolutely loved. The raw beef was so eye opening because I had never had anything so texturely fulfilling???? Also not bloody and no mad cow disease guaranteed!!! The sashimi was super super disappointing in my opinion. It was cut so badly and had the not fresh fishy smell. Very very disappointed compared to the one we had at Standing sushi bar.

Lastly, I wanna address the shitty service there that everyone talks about. Personally, I had very good service. Despite the one of two prompts needed for cups for my water and for the table to be cleaned. All my food came on time with the correct orders given and they were very responsive to me. However I feel so bad for the couple next to us where not only got the wrong order but also waited much longer for their food than we did despite us ordering later. T and I suspect it’s because we ordered 90 dollars worth of food so they had to be nice to us HAHAHA. If you just wanna try the beef bowl go for lunch because it’s cheaper (14.8) and you don’t really wanna pay for shitty service do you? There’s lunch deals from 11:30-3 that you can view hereBut if you’re going on a date where your significant other is paying, feel free to go for the dinner and sit by the balcony to enjoy live music along with your booze and raw salmon (all I feel is bliss thinking about this.. time to drag T to bring me again muahahah)

Hello pals!!! As you can tell from the title I am finally free from the clutches of satanic demons known as the A levels. It’s saturday and it feels like the papers ended a few weeks ago but really it was this tuesday? I’ll be compiling a video of sorts on stuff i’ve done this holiday- mainly videos of food, me eating food and on the rarest occasion, me exercising. First up T and I had a cute little date night to celebrate the end of suffering. I went over to his place and we did a short cover of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (link here). Then we head down to Standing Sushi Bar for dinner!

We initially went because of the $3 for 5 pieces of salmon but we didn’t read the sign properly and went to the Raffles outlet instead of the Queen Street one, only to have our sashimi dreams crushed. Nonetheless we decided to stick it out! The deals there were just as great with sashimi, chicken karaage, mentai tofu and Asahi beer, our new found favourite, going for $5. We ordered mains like unagi and ebi fry which we thoroughly enjoyed. To be honest even without the deals we would continue to come back because the food is good and fresh! And the hostess was literally the nicest and gave us sake shots on the house HAHA. The total bill came to about 60 for the two of us and 60 bucks I wouldn’t mind spending again and again.

After the meal I was tipsy, because I have the alcohol tolerance of a 3 year old so we walked around the CBD area to clear my head. Ended up posing with the art instalments and had a great great time. Also ended the day off with pudding from paris baguette. I am so bloody happy.
