Kyushu Trip - Ramen

Hand-made gyoza - juicy inside with a crunchy skin. Just one dish? More please!

The whole night this guy kept wrapping these delicious gyoza at the yatai in Fukuoka.

Ichiran in Tenjin, Fukuoka. The ramen was a bit of a disappointment.

Fukusuke chicken Ramen in Yufuin

The owner used a torch fire to grill slices of chicken on a hot pan. You add the rice to make porridge after you finish the noodles. Would love to try one of those.

こだいこ Kodaiko Ramen in Kumamoto, the pork slices were especially smooth and really melt in your mouth.

Hidechan Ramen in Ramen Stadium, Canal City, Fukuoka. The pork was tasty but the noodle wasn't good.

Ikkoucha - Black garlic ramen added an extra dimension to the pork bone broth.

Ikkoucha - the broth was full flavor but not greasy and the noodles had great texture.

Ikkoucha - a recommendation from the lady at Toyota rent-a-car. Everyone have their own favorites.

Ippudo (一風堂) - one of Fukuoka most famous ramen chain

Ippudo (一風堂) - probably the best overall, broth, pork slices and noodles combined into an unforgettable experience

Ippudo (一風堂) - another satisfied customer coming out of the main original shop
If you like rick, milky, pork bone broth (tonkotsu) ramen, you would love Kyushu, especially Fukuoka because this is the birth place of the Hakata style ramen. There are so many ramen shops and they could only try a few.
