Tanuki Raw
Black garlic and roasted leek negitoro don

This branch of Tanuki Raw isn't set on a street-watching terrace, but there's still plenty of eye candy to look at. At the National Design Centre, a small clutch of tables seat diners next to the goodies brought in by retailer Kapok. The truffle yakiniku don ($18) is the absolute must-try: juicy US Black Angus short rib is served atop rice, draped in a truffle soya sauce and crowned with a gooey onsen egg. Likewise, the negitoro ($18) is rich without being jelak. Marinated minced fatty tuna is seasoned with black garlic and Tanuki Raw roasted leek before being tossed with shio kombu and laid on a bed of sushi rice. For an extra bit of crunch, the café serves this bowl with fried, pungent black garlic chips. And those subjecting themselves to the #MeatlessMondays trend can take comfort in the spicy garlic miso tofu don ($14), whose cubes of bean curd remind us of agedashi tofu. Besides that, cuisine-bending sushi rolls and sliders are also on the menu.

And dash out early from work if you have to – cocktails go for $10, oysters for $2, and any order of an alcoholic drink nets you a free lobster roll during the happy hours of 5 to 7pm.
