RAKU, Civic

The hubby and I had a date at Floriade’s Nightfest recently, so we decided to go all out and tack on dinner at RAKU as well. Live and let live, right? RAKU only opened on 21 Sept 2017, so I was chomping at the bit to give it a go, given our fantastic experiences in… Continue reading RAKU, Civic
