Tanuki Launches Dim Sum
Since its Fall 2016 opening, Tanuki, known for being a friendly, upscale and modern dining experience, has emerged as the quintessential spot for pan-Asian fare on Miami Beach. Adding to its wide appeal, Tanuki recently launched dim sum service with a modern twist.
Utilizing unexpected ingredients including foie gras and shaved truffle, Tanuki joins the exclusive ranks as one of Miami Beach’s only dim sum purveyors. Offering a fresh spin on traditional dim sum, the menu is offered at an approachable price point and served in a fun and relaxing environment, making Tanuki a unique dining experience on the beach. On his decision to add dim sum to the menu, executive chef Drew Andrade says, dim sum is traditionally an interactive meal shared amongst friends and family, and we wanted to bring that spirit to Tanuki. We take a classical approach with a bit of a twist, incorporating bolder flavors than you would find in traditional dim sum.
Andrade kept classic dim sum items, like the Shrimp Har Gow, on the menu but updated the traditional Chinese recipes with modern, fresh ingredients.The menu has been carefully curated by Chef Andrade and includes 11 signature a la carte dim sum dishes with highlights like Chicken Truffle Siu Mai, Peking Duck Dumpling, Xiao Long Bao, Black Pepper Beef and Beef & Foie Gras Dumpling starting at $11. For larger groups, Tanuki offers a dim sum platter for $29 featuring a selection of three types of dumplings. In China and Hong Kong, traditional dim sum is offered for lunch and yum cha (afternoon tea); while Tanuki serves dim sum from customary bamboo steamer baskets, the restaurant bucks tradition by offering the delicious bites all day long.
The fun starts at 10 pm and the two guest chefs on deck will be Boston favorites, Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer of The Little Donkey.
The Bostonians, Jamie B. and Ken, will be putting their spin on Scallop Crudo and Tuna Tataki. Jamie plans to keep it tropical with his Florida Citrus and White Soy Ponzu inspired dressed oyster #yum
$25 will get you a selection of raw dishes, two (2) signature cocktails from Izzy’s and bottomless Rosé. Guest DJ YSL will be spinning her beats throughout the night – what better way to spend your Saturday?
