    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.

    Many people around the world rate this as the Best Tonkotsu Ramen in Japan. I agree because I have tried 25 places for Tonkotsu and it cant be beat. The best part is that you decide on how you...

    Fukuoka Fukuoka-shi Chuo-ku Tenjin 3-2-19 Kubota Building 1F
    A ramen noodle shop in Tenjin 3 Chome, Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City. Their original tonkotsu pork broth stems from a concept of a pure soup that's easy to eat and everyone will drink to the last drop and is made with Aritadori chicken bones from Saga and a blend of herbs and spices. Their Hakata ShinShin Ramen is topped with chashu pork simmered in their secret sauce and can be ordered in a combo set with fried rice or a chashu rice bowl.

    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...

    Fukuoka Pref. Kurumeshi Torihokamachi 11-8
    This is the main store of Taiho Ramen, which opened in 1951. Its tonkotsu soup has stewed for half a century and the traditional “yobimodoshi soup” was created here. The chashu pork, prepared from the leg or rib depending on the menu, attest to the care taken by the cooks. It is around eight minutes on foot from Nishitetsu Kurume Station.

    One of the oldest Tonkotsu Ramen restaurant. Depending on your experience of Tokontsu ramen, some people may not tolerate this smell. Locals love the flavor and the taste of this ramen.

    A ramen restaurant located in Hakata Ward, Fukuoka City. Here customers can enjoy the establishment's famous tonkotsu ramen, characterized by a broth made with choice, domestic piglet bones and specially ordered noodles. Decked out with a modern decor and offering a relaxing atmosphere, the restaurant is replete with counter and table seating. This restaurant is so popular that lines form in front of the door before it even opens, and is frequented by ramen lovers from far and wide.

    the broth is very thick and creamy, and the smell is filled with super strong pork bones. I think if you really love tonkotsu ramen in japan, this is definitely the one you should try. By the way...

    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.

    Taiho Ramen, established in 1951, is the home of “yobimodoshi soup.” The traditional soup, which has remained stewing in the pot since establishment, has a rich umami flavor yet is also mellow. Order together with gyoza dumplings, premium in ingredients and texture. It is a three-minute walk from subway Nanakuma Line Tenjin-Minami Station.

    The restaurant is located in Tenjin area, near the Bic-camera shops. Theres not table service, you have just to order your meal at the machine in the entrance and to give the ticket to the staff...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Daimyou 2-6-4
    A ramen restaurant located in Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City. The restaurant is notable for its use of thin, flat noodles similar to those used in Inaniwa udon. The restaurant's tonkotsu pork bone broth is made with a relatively large ratio of soy sauce, giving it a flavor that is milder than usual and which has been a favorite of locals for years. During lunchtime, the restaurant offers a ramen set meal which includes a half sized serving of fried rice.

    After 2:30 in the afternoon, its hard to find good things to eat in Japan until dinner time. This place was serving, and we wanted Fukuoka-style ramen, so in we went. The gyoza are small, nice and...

    "A ramen restaurant located in Hakata Ward, Fukuoka City. Established in 1963, the restaurant is notable to its ultrafine noodles and rich tonkotsu pork bone broth. Popular menu selections include the ""every topping ramen,"" topped with all manner of toppings; and the stewed egg ramen topped with a flavorfully stewed egg."

    I ordered a set menu, ramen, beer and half size dumpling. Since I enjoyed noodle, I ordered Kaedama!, additional noodle. Personally I do not like super thin noodle as a ramen but this restaurants...

    A restaurant serving tonkotsu ramen, a Hakata specialty, located a two-minute walk from JR Hakata Station. The establishment serves ramen in which loving attention has been paid not only to the noodles and the broth but also the chashu broiled pork, soft boiled eggs, and all the toppings. This popular restaurant is frequented not only by locals but also many ramen loving tourists.

    Ok, Hakata is the origin birth place of Hakata ramen that you probably didnt know.. or maybe just me.. So they are do many other popular ones that you can just goggle in this app or elsewhere. But...

    The sister shop to Hakata Daruma and offering the same great flavor, Hidechan Ramen’s homemade thin noodles go perfectly with a rich broth made from carefully selected pork bones slow-simmered over hours. The atmospheric interior has made the shop popular with women as well and lines form out the door day and night. A seven-minute walk from Akasaka Station.

    Whatever you do, do NOT get the black ramen unless you absolutely love to enjoy chalky ashes in your mouth with no flavor. The Gyoza was the best part of the meal... In Ramen Stadium... Fail

Here customers can enjoy ""seafood tonkotsu ramen"" which combines choice toppings, noodles, and a broth made from a blend of slow simmered pork bones, two kinds of dried sardines, and three kinds of bonito flakes. Other menu selections include the ""Unari-don"" seafood rice bowl, and the seafood tonkotsu tsukemen dipping noodles, only served here. The restaurant becomes particularly busy during lunchtime."

    I ordered the tonkatsu ramen and the broth was absolutely delicious. That came with two slices of meat and it costed me ¥650. I love gyozas and proceeded to order a set of 14 for merely ¥700...

In addition to its popular seafood tonkotsu ramen, the restaurant's expansive menu also includes dishes like ""Ramen Hibutabone,"" a spicy ramen noodle soup with tonkotsu broth and ""Ramen Genova,"" only served at this location. Open from the evening until 6 a.m., this popular establishment often sees lines of waiting customers."

    深夜まで営業しているので中洲で遊んだ後の〆で訪問。 こちらのラーメン店での一番人気の魚介トンコツを注文しました。 トンコツが主流の博多で、魚介とトンコツとはどんな感じかなと期待してましたが、食べてみると、魚介とトンコツのスープがケンカしてお互いの良いところを殺してしまった感じがして、ちょっと残念な感じがしました。

    Probably the best ramen in Fukuoka. Definitely a must-try for visitors to the city. Any of the three types they offer are good. If youre new to ramen I recommend having your noodles as katamen...

    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.

In addition to ramen, the restaurant also offers a daily rice bowl special and more. This popular establishment is quite small, with just six counter seats, giving it a food stall atmosphere.
