The Tanuki Burger Cones at Tanuki

Tanuki burger with spicy tuna, avocado, and wasabi furikake

This modern sushi establishment expertly pairs fresh fish with inspired ingredients such as dry miso and black truffles from a menu that clearly took thought and skill to create. The standout item is the Tanuki Burger. Served on a wood slab with the heavy fork and steak knife needed for a dish this substantial, the spicy tuna is topped with jalapeno, herbs and avocado and served between hot rice that’s been crafted and cooked into a bun. Also don’t miss the dim sum served in traditional bamboo but containing delicious twists, as the chicken version is topped with truffle and the shrimp with caviar. The salmon roll here is ultra-upgraded, as the rice is mixed with eel aioli and cream cheese.

Tanuki can be found at 1080 Alton Rd, Miami Beach.
