Izakaya and Value Set Lunches

Raku Raku is a hole in the wall at the growing posh Duxton area that is a no frills Izakaya for that post work drink.

During the weekday however, they do serve some value for money quick lunches for that informal eat.

At a recent visit, I tried their sashimi set ($18) which had octopus, tuna, swordfish and salmon sashimi on a bowl of rice with soup and some simmered potatoes. Average at best but at this price point one cannot complain.

Better though was the beef set ($20) which was a large slab of medium cooked beef, quite a generous portion for the price point.

Service was what one would expect from a Izakaya, quick and efficient.

Overall, an ideal place for that quick eat and run meal.

While it actually markets itself as an izakaya, the lunch menu only consists of set meals and no sight of a single skewer. The recommended dish was pork and miso eggplant set rice but I chose the Teriyaki Salmon ($15)
 
The grilled salmon glazed with the shiny brown sauce was slightly tough and not impressive. However, the rich sauce is enough to go with the Hokkaido short grains served here. The sweet marinated cold daikon topped with white miso was much attractive than the pickles.
 
Others include the pomfret fish with tofu. According to a Japanese colleague, it is rare to find this fish served in Japanese menu. Well, this reminded me of steamed Teochew pomfret with tofu but a generous portion to be served as an individual set.
 
The Ebi Tempura Set
 
The deep fried pork cutlet set
 
This place also serve staples such as curry rice, udon, unagi dons and soba. The door slides open and the indoor is just simply two rows of seats with no fuss brown walls. Simple but close to those in Japan.
