Had a great meal at Raku this weekend. The food and especially the agedashi tofu was just as good as vegas. The service was a little slow but I expect that to improve in the coming weeks. I can’t wait to try more of the menu.
The kanpachi was so fresh it signed an endorsement deal with febreze
Foie gras egg custard
Adding this from the weekend thread
Sea robin sashimi
Enoki wrapped bacon
Kobe bryant with garlic
Fries with eyes
Fried sea robin
The fish was so fried it made snoop dogg look sober.
Stopped by for a late night snack, you can’t beat raku if you happen to be hungry at 1am. I’ll have to come back for the soba and chawanmushi.

Grilled salmon belly, highlight of the night, crispy fatty, smoky and just melts in your mouth.
Pork cheeks and iberico pork, so porky it started stuttering

Foie gras, the skewers helped me shove this down my throat.
