Soup noodle lovers will be happy to know that Ramen Tatsu-Ya is combining its separate lunch and dinner hours into an all-day menu. It begins on Monday, February 22 at both locations on Research Boulevard and South Lamar, starting from 11 a.m. all the way through 10 p.m.
The new change means there are more ramen choices to make, including the previously Sunday-only veggie ramen, which will be available throughout the week. The shop is is also introducing happy hour, dubbed Slurpin’ Hour, with special cocktails like the Kimchelada and Sugrdog with sake and grapefruit juice.
Steven Cak, the former executive pastry chef of Contigo and now-shuttering Gardner, is Ramen’s executive pastry chef. As part of his role, he's in charge of the desserts, which includes a citrus tapioca topped with a pink peppercorn crumble. Keeping himself busy, he is also still working on opening a New York-style bagel shop somewhere in North Austin.
