Oh Tanuki’s Cave how I have fallen in love with this yakitori smoke filled basement bar.
It is very rare for me to eat at the same place twice when away. I say rare, as I like to fit in as many places as possible. On the odd occasion there will be a restaurant that lures me back a second time.
Tanuki’s Cave was that rare establishment. Drawn back by the smell of cooking juices hitting hot charcoal and great sake, it was hard not to have a second helping when recently in Auckland.
I discovered Tanuki’s Cave when researching hidden bars in Auckland. Tanuki’s Cave isn’t really hidden, but you do need to know what you are looking for or you may end up in the wrong place.
