In 2012, Tatsu Aikawa, Takuya Matsumoto and Shion Aikawa started Ramen Tatsu-Ya. In a short time, the team has expanded quickly, opening four Ramen Tatsu-Ya locations in Austin and Houston, plus Texas-Japanese spot Kemuri Tatsu-Ya in East Austin and patio bar Domo Alley-Gato alongside the Ramen Tatsu-Ya east side location.

That expansion will continue this spring when DipDipDip Tatsu-Ya opens at 7301 Burnet Road, Austin. The new spot is expected to open its doors in June and will offer “shabu-shabu,” or a Japanese hot pot style of cooking.

Customers will choose food displayed on carts on tableside––options include proteins, vegetables, broths and dipping sauces. The food is then cooked in boiling broth at the table during the meal and dipped into sauces.
