Discovered Raku Raku Japanese Dining while walking past Duxton Hill on one of the weekends and noted that the place was rather packed. Dropped by to try their food on a weekday night.
There were a few Japanese smokers outside the restaurant when we arrived – I mentally noted that “Not bad, this meant that this place is also frequent by Japanese”. What caught me by surprised was once inside, 80% of the customers were speaking rowdily in Japanese. It was as if I was dining in Japan town, even the TV monitors were showing Japan league baseball matches.
Ordered Sashimi Platter of 5 kinds – Tako (Octopus), Toro, Swordfish, Yellowtail and Salmon. Somehow I must be kinda bushed to make a silly decision to go for Assorted Nigiris and ended up with more of the similar fishes plus Prawn, Tamago and roll…
The sashimi was thick but I didn’t quite enjoy them as it felt a bit tougher than usual. The Nigiri sushi rice was also a bit dry and the grains didn’t taste supple.
Tried the Assorted Yakitoris – Mushrooms, Golden mushroom wrapped with Bacon, Chicken with Leek, Pork Belly and Chicken. The pork ones were tough and hard…Couldn’t taste the grilled flavour.
I left wondering if I had missed out on any of their specialty items or perhaps should have tried their cooked dishes like curry rice and teriyaki sets???
