"We Gotcha if you're in the mood for something sweet after your ramen! Gotcha Matcha is our cute little 🍵 pudding dessert with blackberries and kokuto (Okinawa molasses) crumble. Light, refreshing, and just sweet enough."

From My Menu

Chef Carson Symmonds reviews Tonkotsu Original at Ramen Tatsu-ya
$$ | Japanese
North Austin
"The broth is well seasoned and the noodles are the perfect texture. Everything is well-balanced, and it's the perfect portion. I like being gluttonous and order extra charsu and an additional ajitama egg, with both the spicy and corn bombs."
Chef Mat Clouser reviews Tsukemen at Ramen Tatsu-ya
$$ | Japanese
North Austin
"All their dishes are great, but their tsukemen dipping ramen is the one that I crave constantly. It makes me wish I had a second stomach so I could eat more of it. It's nicely balanced, heavily seasoned, but perfectly harmonious."
Chef Sarah McIntosh reviews sho-yu ramen (#2 on the menu) at Ramen Tatsu-ya
$$ | Japanese
North Austin
"The soy sauce-based sho-yu ramen (#2 on the menu) is my go-to at Tatsuya. The broth is rich and the chashu (pork belly) is buttery, fatty goodness. Gotta make sure you get the ajitama (soft-boiled) egg too."
Chef Tatsu Aikawa reviews Ramen with chicken and seafood broth topped off with garlic shmaltz at Ramen Tatsu-ya
$$ | Japanese
North Austin
"Ol' skool. Chicken broth takes 12 hours to make, low and slow. Chicken in flavor but It has seafood background notes. Topped off with garlic shmaltz. I always eat it with Yuzu bomb. Inspired by original ramen (shina soba) in such places like Yokohama and Hakodate(Hokkaido) @ramentatsu_ya @ramentatsu_ya_houston #rtyslurp #ramentatsuya"
