Franklin Barbecue and Ramen Tatsu-Ya, two of Austin’s most line-worthy restaurants, are teaming up tomorrow, July 23, to create a special brisket ramen. While the barbecue noodle dish isn’t new for the shop, this is the first time the kitchen is using the famed tender meat. The Franklin Brisket Tsukemen will be available at both Tatsu-Ya locations for dinner only starting at 5 p.m. until the meat runs out.

The special is in honor of Ramen Tatsu-Ya’s appearance on Aaron Franklin’s PBS show. In the episode that airs tomorrow evening at 8 p.m., executive chef and owner Tatsu Aikawa shows how he works with leftover brisket. Contigo appears as well. "Customers have asked us for a collaboration with them forever," a rep for Ramen Tatsu-Ya told Eater, "so I think the timing couldn’t be more perfect." He added, in order to work with the smoky flavors of Franklin’s brisket, "we are seasoning and spicing the broth differently." This is Austin’s only chance for Franklin’s brisket while he’s away on vacation.

Ramen Tatsu-Ya also collaborated with Swift's Attic for the Swift's Dip ramen burger in March.
