Tanuki in Japanese means legendary raccoon dog. In Manila, it is a small and modest authentic Japanese restaurant in buendia. Dining here will give you a feel of traditional Japanese dining - sitting on a tatami mats and dine from low tables; there's also an portion where there is a chair by the bar. Japanese written menu (we assume) are posted by the wall.
The menu is a little off at first, informing us that they don't have sushi or bento, but it didn't bothered at all as we go on on pages, since the choices is pretty extensive. Service is just ok. Anyway on our table...
There salmon is generously sliced, is fresh and yummy.
It is definitely to drool for.
Ebi Tempura. P250 est.
It is crunchy, light and not greasy.
Fried rice with Miso soup. P180.
Yes it comes in combo- fried rice is big enough for two, While miso soup is just ok it is missing the tofu.
