The Tatsu-ya team — behind popular restaurants like noodle shop Ramen Tatsu-ya, Japanese-Texas izakaya Kemuri, and patio bar Domo Alley-Gato — is turning its new-school shabu-shabu restaurant DipDipDip Tatsu-ya into a temporary Japanese dipping sandwich shop at 7301 Burnet Road, Suite 101, starting today, Friday, May 8
Called DipDipDip Pop-Up, the menu focuses on sandwiches meant to be dipped into broths, as well as ice cream. The shop will stay open for as long as the restaurant’s dining room remains closed for dine-in service at this time.
It’s a very simple menu with just two sandwiches, making use of thinly slice slow-cooked meats charred on a binchōtan grill. There’s the beef one, made with a 24-hour Texas wagyu, sweet and spicy chow-chow, pickles, and wasabi ranch; and then the pork one with Mugifuji pork, kimchi, and a curry cabbage slaw. The sandwiches are paired with either the beefy umami jus or the spicy miso dips.
The only available side is the crispy smashed potatoes topped with nori furikake. Sweets-wise, there’s the ice cream taco, which makes use of a fried panko brioche shell, and pints of ice cream. Drinks include non-alcoholic options such as yuzu lemonade and sweet ginger green tea, and boozier options like beer, wine, and sake. Scope out the full menu below.
The shop will function out of DipDipDip’s on-site window. Orders can be placed online or in person. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
