Rainy day weekends are no fun, but while wondering through Hakata looking for something to do I found a great but cheap ramen shop.
Tonkotsu Ramen is the pride of Hakata people and you’ll find an extraordinary number of stores dotted around the city with a cultural Mecca of the cuisine located in the Nagahama port area. Hakata Ramen is a rich , tasty noodle dish with a pork broth base (豚骨 Tonkotsu soup) .
You can add your own toppings to suit your taste. The extra garlic (大蒜 ninniku), that I just had to add, meant I couldn’t have a conversation with any one else for the rest of the day ! But well worth the experience…
And prices have been coming down recently! All this for only 280 yen.
Have a quick look at a video of the experience .
