Raa Uptown Japanese crafts a menu of authentic Japanese tapas, sushi, seafood dishes, and hot pots in its elegant, art-lined space. Gindara saikyo yaki—marinated black cod with sweet miso seasoning ($9.50)—makes a flavourful start to a tapas tasting or a fitting end to an evening of underwater ballet. A host of sushi rolls populate the menu, including the palate-pleasing spicy tuna roll ($6.50) and the more adventurous lobster roll ($8.50), in which the crustacean's flavor is complimented by a supporting cast of asparagus, avocado, and cukes. Pizza gets a leggy makeover with octopus dumplings ($7.50), and grilled squid ($8.50) dresses to the nines in a spicy teriyaki leisure suit. As an order of yakiniku—juicy, charbroiled slices of steak ($9.50)—quells carnivorous cravings, the Dengaku Special ($7.50) sates herbivorous appetites with a mélange of tofu, eggplant, and yam cakes. Meanwhile, hot pots of egg custard, chestnuts, and yuzu citrus ($7) can warm diners chilled by earlier encounters with cold winds or bear-hug-dispensing snowmen.

Raa's commitment to full bellies extends to its decor, which includes a bronze Buddha statuette and artwork depicting sumo wrestlers. Framed by a wooden ceiling, arrangements of reeds, and flickering candles, the bar exudes the beauty of nature and the comfort of a fire-warmed cabin far from day-to-day worries and door-to-door doorbell salesmen.
