Acclaimed Texas-influenced Japanese izakaya Kemuri Tatsu-Ya is excited to announce the launch of daily happy hour, beginning Tuesday, October 1. Happy hour specials will be available every day from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. throughout the restaurant, and reservations via Resy are highly encouraged, although walk-ins are always welcome.
The happy hour menu will feature a mix of Kemuri favorites and new additions, all at discounted prices. Classics added to the happy hour lineup include skewers like chicken thighs & scallions, Kurobuta pork belly, and head-on prawn, as well as the three-pickle plate, chicken karaage, and the crispy onigiri. Kemuri will also add new menu items available only during happy hour, like the Niku Dango skewer — Japanese meatballs in sweet soy sauce, pork croquette with braised pork, kewpie mayo, negi and bonito, and a rotating chef’s choice steamed bun.
Kemuri will also have specials on Kirin Ichiban lager, by the glass or pitcher, and new cocktails to complement the happy hour bites. Drinks include the Gold Rush with Kikusui Funaguchi Nama sake, brandy, honey syrup, bitters, and citrus; the Yopun-ki made with junmai sake, yaupon tea, Thai basil falernum, and citrus; or the Snow Plane with nigori, aperol, loquat syrup, bitters, and citrus.
Kemuri Tatsu-Ya is open 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. For more information or to make a reservation, please visit www.kemuri-tatsuya.com.
