  • A fusion take that doesnt suck at all. The classic izakaya stuff is well done, but their original creations are really special. Dont forget the brisket
  • Amazing highly recommend! Japanese izakaya meets Texas smoke house. The blue cheese tofu melts on your tongue, smoked fish collar, Tex ramen
  • Guaca-poke is a dip that's perfect for sharing. Decent portion size.
  • Tasty, expensive bar food. Good for a date!
  • Karaage Chicken
  • The pork ribs are deliciously tender and smoky!
  • The BBQ tsukemen was divine!
  • Skewers: beef tongue, chicken thigh. BBQ duck.
  • A menu that includes fish collar with yuzu salt, sticky rice tamales with beef tongue and chorizo, and roasted banana pudding with miso caramel.
  • Texas Beef Ramen and fish collar
  • A Japanese izakaya in a Texan setting, serving izakaya classics, inventions, and some takes on Texan classics. Sounds like an unorthodox combination, but the result is superb. I will definitely return
  • Texas smoke + Asian Spice + Japanese sophisticated palate= WINNING
  • Didnt have one bad dish. Chilli smothered takoyaki shouldnt work, but it does. Yellowtail collar was amazing, as was the beef tongue. But the highlight may have been the smoked jalapeos.
  • The fish rib, and gyutan were great. Also loved the mentaiko tots. One of the few places to find shiokara in Texas.
  • Such an enjoyable spot for surprising dishes mixing Japanese and Texas favorites. Do not miss the BBQ Ramen and guacamole poke. The Ramen is everything. Staff is great and very friendly!
  • The smoked half collar was super special. Chili cheese takoyaki and the hot pocketz were also fun to eat. True to the fusion and with winning results!
  • Love their well-curated decor. Interesting Japanese-Texan mash-up. Brisket Ramen works well until about halfway in when it gets too salty. Worth trying but don't expect to be blown away
  • Ask for the specials, or Kemuri-Osusume (recommendations). Some of the best things we ate came from this menu, including a rich crawfish chawanmushi (steamed egg custard) and fries with eyes.
  • We didn't have anything that wasn't amazing.
  • A cool, laid-back place with tons of interesting twists on izakaya classics. Don't miss scallop, pork belly, bacon, or chicken skewers. Also, takoyaki, BBQ eel, & banana dessert.
