the name of the business in big bold print for you to see? I didn’t notice the small two signs on both sides of their very large wood paneled entrance until I literally got out of the car to look. Yes that is steam in the photo as well. I didn’t know that I made a reservation at DipDipDip Tatsu-ya for a meal and a facial but it happened at no extra charge. 💰
Reservations Only Austin Restaurant
Thanks Goodness For An Austin Outside Bar
Instead of offering anyone water as we waited they offered their menu which had their few cocktails and wine list. I saw a few peoples cocktails with more ice than liquids so I passed for wine 🍷. Very small wine with a few buy the bottle options. But I’ll quote my friend Erin here and say “At least they have bear and Sake” 🍺
Entry Into Austin’s Hottest New Restaurant Beyond The Big Wood Door 🚪
Cool 😎 Idea 💡that your chair swiveled around and the menu was in a pocket on one side and your under the seat was an open area for personal items. 💚💙 It swiveled with you when you were seated so your purse is hidden. 💎
After being given an introduction by Michael, our very polite quiet spoken server, we both felt lost 🧐. If you have never had a shabu shabu meal before you got crash courses in 39
seconds. I had been to a place similar in NYC but it was a tad bit different and I wanted more than a quick crash course and GOOOOOOO ❗️
You Become The 👨🍳 Chef
The Extras that Made Up for The Not So Good Choice
I regret even eating that one but there was also a Al la carte menu that they pushed by in the tiny spaces between tables for us to choose from. We chose oysters, and I’m glad I did, to remove the taste of the pot pockets.
I purposely didn’t cover it all in this blog but gave you some inside scoop so you can scoot on over and make a reservation. Oh by the way, the reservations are weeks out in advance. Don’t forget to try the ice cream 🍨 spot that is adjacent to them. You order on a screen! I’m lactose intolerant and without a lactose pill so I passed.
I’ll be back because there’s better things to do outside of providing and Austin Cleaning Service Every day so we eat. 🤷🏻♀️
