What: Foie gras truffle yakiniku don ($23)
Where: Tanuki Raw, #04-01, Orchard Central
Pan-seared foie gras,tender beef slices and an onsen egg gently perfumed with the aroma of truffle - what's not to love? Though admittedly the truffle flavour could be a tad stronger, but still, it makes for a tasty bowl.
Japanese gyu-don lovers will enjoy this version with chunkier cuts of beef - we just wish there was more of it!
At $23 per bowl, the cut of foie gras is more than generous, and it also pairs nicely with the savoury dark sauce and rice.
Instead of regular white Japanese rice, Tanuki Raw's version is a healthier brown rice mixed with sesame seeds.
Lastly, the wobbly onsen egg with runny yolk is also a perfect accompaniment to the dish.
We recommend mixing the yolk and sauce into the rice, and enjoy!
