    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.

    The very first Ichiran Ramen Shop ! One of my favorite ramen in Japan ! The soup, noodles, the meat everything is perfect ! Really like their ramen ! I was hoping for some special menu in their...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Tenjin 2-14-13
    A food stand located in the Tenjin neighborhood of Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City, Fukuoka Prefecture. The inventor of yaki ramen (fried ramen), now a popular dish found even in convenience stores, Kokinchan is frequented by great numbers of tourists. Thin ramen noodles and assorted toppings covered with a tonkotsu (pork bone) broth, the rich flavor of Kokinchan’s yaki ramen goes well with beer. Kokinchan also offers stewed oden, mentai tamagoyaki (fried egg with roe), and other unique food stand delights. Kokinchan is so popular lines inevitably form before it even opens.

    I, stay at Hotel Monterey La Souer and the side entrance open directly to Kokinchan Yatai. My hotel has two posters of them in the gift section and I supposed that the hotel do give some sort of...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashihakataku Hakataekimae 3-23-12 Gwaka Building 103
    An old-fashioned foamy tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen shop which has taken great pride in the flavor of the bones used to make its delicious broth since it first opened in 2004. The shop also puts great effort into its noodles, which are thin and chew and go well with the shop’s broth, and established its own noodle factory, Keishi, in 2008. The shop closes when its supply of broth for the day runs out. A five-minute walk from the Hakata Exit at JR Hakata Station.

    One of the best ramen in Japan I would say. The price is quite acceptable,the soup is quite thick the way I like it ( some people might not like the smell though, since it’s Tonkotsu ramen the smell...

    The Ippudo ramen chain was founded in 1985. Ippudo puts great effort into just about every aspect of its ramen—in addition to the flavor, even the appearance and sound of the shop’s ramen is carefully designed; only the safest and choicest of ingredients are selected for use; and Ippudo also strives to prepare an optimum cooking environment for its chefs. The Ganso Shiromaru Motoaji (Shiromaru Classic) and Ganso Akamaru Motoaji (Akamaru Modern) ramens are only available at the Daimyo location. An eight-minute walk from Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station on the Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line.

    In our three day stay in Fukuoka, we were told to absolutely try some Hakata ramen. We are huge lovers of ramen, what more could be done to improve upon such a perfect dish? Ippudo showed us the...

And the shop’s proprietary soy sauce is made by special order from a soy sauce brewer. Whichever item on the shop’s menu you choose, the flavor will tell you about the master skills which went into making it. Customers also love its selection of noodles, for the ultra thick to the ultra thin. A five-minute walk from Watanabe-dori Station.

    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.

    It’s clean, the staff are nice and the pork gyoza were good. But the ramen broth had a VERY strong porky smell. So strong I couldn’t eat the broth. I know the soup is based on pork bones but this...

    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.

    After watching a You Tube video on this place, I had to try it while overnighting in Fukuoka. Amazing Tonkotsu style Ramen, ordered via vending machine at the entrance and served to you in your own...

    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 tourist office in Tenjin will give you a sheet with about 9 possible Hakata Ramen shops in the neighbourhood. After a bit of shopping at Loft, I was closest to number 7, Taiho Ramen, so I turned...

    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.

    As recommended by travel website I was lured to this Ramen shop last time during my visit on Fukuoka. I was surprised to see the usual egg in the ramen was not any kind of semi-liquid Onsen egg but...

    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.

    移転前の学生時代から、通いまくった店。 自分的には、福岡で最高の味で、福岡に行く度に通ってる。 観光客にはメジャーじゃなくて、地元の方々の多い店。みんな混んでほしくないから投稿しないのかもしれないけど、正当に評価してほしいのであえて投稿。 超濃厚な赤みがかったスープに、独特の極細平打ち麺がマッチ。定食の種類も多く、夜は飲み屋としても使える。それでいて、高くない。 こんな店が自分ちの近くに欲しい。

    A ramen restaurant located in Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City. In addition to tonkotsu pork bone broth ramen, the restaurant also offers handmade gyoza and a full array of other Chinese dishes; the mapo tofu, made according to a recipe from a Chinese chef, is particularly popular.
