The Story behind Kemuri BBQ

Welcome to Kemuri BBQ – a culinary venture that's close to my heart, born out of a wild and exciting journey. I'm a young Singaporean guy who's passionate about two things: Texan smoked barbecue and Japanese cuisine.


My journey took me all the way to Austin, Texas, where I trained myself in the outback smokehouse of LeRoy and Lewis Barbecue. I learned the secrets of crafting exceptional smoked dishes, from briskets to beef cheeks. Bringing this expertise back to Singapore, I knew I had a mission to fulfill – to introduce my hometown to the incredible taste of authentic Texan smoked barbecue.


But that's just one part of the story. Singapore's culinary scene is a vibrant blend of cultures, and Japanese food holds a special place here. Inspired by this, I dared to dream bigger. I envisioned a culinary experience that fuses the robustness of Texan barbecue with the refined artistry of Japanese cooking. And that's how Kemuri Tex Jap BBQ was born – a place where smoky barbecue meets the tidy precision of Japanese cuisine.


So, as you explore our menu, I hope you’ll discover the magic that happens when these two worlds collide. Imagine savoring the tender smoked bacon that's braised and infused with Japanese spices. Picture the delectable pairing of brisket with a rich Japanese demi glaze.


But this journey isn't just about flavors; it's about heart and soul. It's about my mission to bring you an experience that's both familiar and exhilaratingly new. It's about sharing my passion for smoked barbecue and the intricacies of Japanese cuisine, all on a single plate.


So come join us at Kemuri BBQ. I can't wait to welcome you to our table and share the story that's been simmering in my heart.
