The barbecue maestros at Burn City Smokers are lending their talents to a whole new fusion of flavours, with their latest food pop-up Texakaya. A punchy combination of influences from both Texas barbecue joints and the izakayas of Japan, it's offering a very fresh take on some old favourites. And it's making its home at Grand Hyatt Melbourne's Collins Kitchen until the end of August.

The crew's custom-built smoker will be firing up for a menu of new-school dishes — the perfect antidote to the winter chill ahead. The signature Texas brisket ramen ($25) features 14-hour wagyu in a smoked beef broth, while a vegan mushroom version ($19) teams smoked king browns and shiitake with a ginger porcini base. Alongside those, you'll spy the likes of a vegan miso cauliflower ($26), buttermilk karaage chicken ($19), smoked pork gyoza ($23) and a lively lime zest and yuzu curd pie ($16). You can check out the full menu here.

You'll be able to pair all these smoky Japanese dishes with Asahi, Sapporo and a range of Nikka whiskies and sake, too.

Texakaya is open for lunch from midday–2.30pm, Monday to Friday and dinner from 6–10.30pm, daily.
