Ramen Tatsu-Ya doesn’t mess around when it comes to perfecting different regional styles of ramen from Japan. The founders decided they wanted their home town to experience true, authentic noodles in a hot, steamy broth, which brims with more flavors than one could have ever imagined. After discovering the rich pork broths, fresh ingredients and slightly firm noodles native to the Asian country, those crunchy packets from grocery shelves become something sad and unacceptable.

Creating each style of broth can take some serious time, as the flavors must slowly emerge. Typically, Tatsu-Ya experts recommend breathing in the piping hot steam and sipping the broth, before slurping (yes, literally because it enhances flavor) noodles rapidly from the bowl. It’s all a delicate process, from making each variation to eating it in a way that the flavors are best experienced.
Once understanding the complexity that goes into a bowl of ramen, it’s easy to understand why take out orders just weren’t a thing at the four Texas locations, three of which are in the Austin area. But the current crisis left the chefs wanting to be certain patrons could still enjoy the traditional Japanese food they’ve grown to love so much. Thus online ordering became available, changing history for the beloved eatery.
While the gorgeously artistic dining areas of each location should be experienced once things get back to normal, we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Tatsu-Ya is transitioning to a takeout platform like the true noodle slinging champs they are. Seriously, customers are commenting on Facebook, with rave reviews of how stellar the food is, even when making the trip home before enjoying it.
So if you’re lucky enough to be in Austin, order a bowl of “Japan soul food”, for an exciting change up to mealtime.
