en we go to Raku Plus we seem to always be the only non-Asians in the room. And we go there quite often. I don't understand this though because the menu is in English and there is a hand-written "Specials" board that they bring to the table (also in English) and they also offer a PICTURE MENU (yes, it's in English too) showing all the most popular dishes AND there is a Top Ten card on every table - describing their ten most popular dishes. And all the wait staff speak and understand English perfectly. The food is top rung and wonderfully fresh and well-presented. The place is casual and friendly and full of a very positive vibe. You cannot go wrong with their Miso Cod, Fried Tofu or Eggplant with Miso - we order those every time. We also love the Deep-Fried Sardine with Plum Paste and Shiso Leaf. Two nights ago we tried Fried Lotus Root stuffed with Ground Chicken from the Specials Menus - it was spectacular. They also offer several wonderful Pork Belly (what can I say, I like Pork Belly!) dishes from the Specials Menu and they are all very well-made and delicious and range from Fried to Grilled. There are dozens and dozens of things to try there. It is a tapas-like experience where you order lots of little Japanese/PanAsian dishes - it's great fun! (And they serve beer and wine.) If you want to read the menu beforehand - and it might help since you will be a little more familiar with their many, many selections - go here: https://sites.google.com/site/izakayarakuplus/menu
