Recently the casual Japanese restaurant has reopened at the shopping centre. It is now located at level 4, with a bigger dine in area. Similar to its previous location, it has both indoor and outdoor dine in area.As the restaurant was crowded, I decided to ask for outdoor dine in area, which was still has quite a number of tables as most felt that it was quite hot to dine outdoor.

Although it was weekend, the restaurant offered lunch menu. Just add $2++ to the main dish to make it a lunch set. I decided to have a Premium Set by topping $5++. The set included miso soup, green salad, and coffee or "Back to work" beverage. Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku ($19.90++)
pan-seared foie gras, US black angus short rib, onsen egg, truffle soy, black garlic brown butter over Tanuki's signature mixed rice
The foie gras was quite buttery and melt in the mouth. The beef was quite tender and moist. The mixed rice was tasty on its own. Miso Soup
The soup was filled with chunky pieces of tofu and seaweed. The soup tasted light and flavourful. Green Salad
The salad was lightly tossed with ginger soyu dressing. Light and crunchy. Shio Smooth (a la carte $5++)
fresh shiso, matcha green tea, lemon, blended with ice
It was my choice of "Back to work" beverage. It was light and refreshing in taste. Just the right to have during such a hot day.
Overall the food was not bad. But the service needed to be improved as it was quite difficult to get the attraction of the staffs.
