Kemuri Tatsu-Ya

tastemaker nominee

Kemuri is a Texas take on an izakaya, a traditional Japanese pub, inspired by chef Tatsu Aikawa’s (of Ramen Tatsu-Ya fame) experience as a Japanese native growing up in the Lone Star State. The menu focuses on shareable plates — including smoked meats, yakitori, and chinmi — while the beverage list emphasizes sake, whiskey, and beer.
