Unique Ramen Experience: Efficiency doesn't take away the flavours

This is truly Ramen-dine-in-on-the-go! First you take your picks of the items from a ticket dispenser, using the pictures and of course the cost as a guide (very few of us tourists know the language anyway). This is done at the tiny entrance with two ticketing dispensers. No coins? no problem! It... read more

It was the most amazing experience to have the noodle lunch at Ichiran Nakasu – Head shop, Fukuoka on March 14, 2015. The noodle and boiled egg were so delicious at this restaurant. After we left the restaurant, my wife suddenly realized she had lost a pair of glasses in the shop. We went back, and reported the lost to... More

One of the very popular ramen shop all over Japan. However, why I recommend this place as ''The Hakata Ramen'' is because, there is a special menu that can only be ordered at this place. Kamadare-style ramen. The hot and spicy, yet mild (tonkotsu flavor) is super delicious. The noodle matches the soup, and it creates a great harmony. As... More

Whenever I visite Fukuoka, I want to enjoy this Ramen. You have to eat individually but if you eat a bit hot tasty Hakata rament, try here in spite of uniquenesses in ordering, counter style and shape of bowl. Perhaps, here are tips I remember. 1. Entrance and way out is both one way. 2. Have to choose and buy... More

This is a chain in Fukuoka so we can find the outlets quite easily at shopping complexes/shopping streets in the Hakata and Tenjin areas. We love the taste of it and had it 3 consecutive nights for dinner. The good thing is they have the English version for the customisation form so it is quite a breeze. In December, we... More

If many people think that " Ichiran " is good ramen-ya, I am very sad. It's not good, just simply not good. I was born in Hakata & grew up eating a lot of goodies there including ramen. Broth doesn't taste good, their noodle is too fat, so soup & noodle is miss matched. Just they are like a bad... More

Wherether or not you consider Ichiran the best ramen in Hakata, it will certainly set a mark in your ramen knowledge overall. The experience is unique, the ramen outstandingly good. One of the best ramen I've had in my life. If you are not familiar with japanese language/style you might struggle in the beginning with no real grasp on the... More

I understand that people argue vehemently over where to get the best ramen in Hakata and many don't agree with Ichiran. But after much research, we chose to go there over the competition and had the best bowl of ramen any of us have ever had in our lives. Nothing in America comes close-it's like it's a completely different food.... More

My favorite Japanese noodle. It is especially for Korean or people who like spicy noodle. The soup is thick and heavy a bit as a noodle.
