    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashihakataku Nakasu 5-3-2
    This natural pork bone ramen shop opened in 1960 in Fukuoka, and it is the main location of a chain that is beloved nationwide. The soup is light on the unique pork bone taste and aroma, and it contains a secret sauce made from chili peppers that floats on the surface. Visitors can adjust the toughness of the noodles and the richness of the soup as they see fit. This location offers a “concentration counter” in which the seats are separated by walls, allowing customers to focus on enjoying the bowl of ramen in front of them. The atmosphere of the first floor is redolent of food stalls, and many original menu options are available. The closest station is Nakasu-Kawabata Station.

    When she found out that Ichiran started in Fukuoka, my wife insisted we make a pilgrimage to its main branch. Its basically a 10 floor temple dedicated to the worship of Ramen. Admittedly, the food...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Daimyou 2-1-57
    This is a tonkotsu ramen specialty shop in Tenjinnishi Street in the central district of Fukuoka City. One can concentrate on enjoying the taste of ramen in the individually partitioned seating. With the “kamadare” tonkotsu dish, only available in the Tenjinnishi Street shop, one can really savor the rich taste and a full aroma. In addition, the chashu pork here comes from the belly rather than the shoulder, giving it an extra rich flavor. It is a five-minute walk from Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line’s Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station.

    The Ichiran-Ramen is exactly how I like my Ramen:Savoury, rich, creamy broth, thin noodles and moreover, you can have spicy seasoning! We came here on a rainy, rather chilly day and it was the...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Nagahama 2-5-25
    A venerable ramen shop first started as a food stand in 1952. A favorite breakfast stop for people working in the nearby Fukuoka Central Wholesale Fish Market, the shop has even been featured in the media and is famous as the progenitor of Nagahama ramen. Tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen is the only item on the menu, but the simple and rich flavor of its concentrated broth is something you’ll never get tired of. Diners can order the firmness of their noodles as well as the amount of fat and onions to taste. The shop is known for the rapid fire unique orders made by regulars. Closest station: Akasaka Station.

    A rough, local version of ramen. Goes well with the red ginger and sesame provided on the tables. Definitely not a refined dish, but quite satisfying with good flavor and texture balances.

    I tried Shinshin ramen while in Fukuoka. The taste is ok though a little bit milder compared with other ramen in the locality. Price is competitive with other ramen stores and their serving is good...
