Yet another unique dining experience has landed in Dallas but this one offers an immersive restaurant experience like no other.
Having opened its doors in mid-May, Temakeria is now welcoming guests to a 2D-themed cafe that has been decorated with monochromatic comic book art creating a cartoon-like setting straight out of an artist’s sketch pad.
Inspired by the social media-famous Greem Cafe in Seoul which is credited with first inventing the 2-dimensional cafe, every decoration in Temakeria has been brought to life with a black marker against a white wall.
After months of hard work and an exorbitant amount of ink, the exciting new restaurant finally opened to the public in Trinity Groves in West Dallas on Tuesday, May 16.
After the director of marketing for Trinity Groves, Alexa Rodarte was imbued with a fondness for the creativity of Seoul’s Greem Cafe, artist Jonathan Krown was hired to turn the idea into a reality and spent months putting together the restaurant’s decor.
From its illustrated bookshelves to its cartoon fireplace, 50 markers were used to cover the premises in black and white features from the floor to the ceiling.
With even the temaki plates coming outlined in black ink, the only bursts of color that guests will find upon dining at Temakeria will come from the clothes they wear and the vibrant food and drinks on offer.
Temakeria, a fusion of the Japanese word “temaki” and Mexican word “taqueria”, doesn’t currently have a working website but the restaurant’s Instagram page reads “Dallas’ first 2D restaurant serving temaki style sushi, sashimi & ramen.”
According to Dallasnews.com, “a meal here might start with edamame ($7), shishito peppers ($8), poke nachos ($16) or lobster karaage ($19).”
“The menu offers two options for ramen: tonkotsu with pork belly and wood ear mushrooms or miso with ground pork, bamboo shoots and miso corn (both $14)” while the stars are “the 15 temaki that include yellowtail with serrano ($9), salmon with miso tamari ($9) and cucumber with sesame ($7).”
Temakeria is located at 3011 Gulden Lane, Trinity Groves, Dallas.
More information will be made available after opening day so stay tuned!
