Our group went to Ichiran and was amused by the cubicle seating style that we had never tried before. The experience was so unique. But the real highlight were the huge and hugely delicious Ramen bowls. Ichiran is not a place for conversation and dawdlers, however. This is where you order quickly, eat quickly and pay quickly. A no-nonsense noodle place in a nutshell.
You can select the spice level of your noodles. I opt for medium and was glad I did. Because of the hot noodles and spices, you can really perspire. I believe it also puts in a fair amount of MSG as most of us were truly thirsty after the lunch.
Regardless, I think every visit to Fukuoka should include an Ichiran meal. The seating experience and the fabulous noodles will make for a memorable time.
