As the bridge between Japan and the rest of mainland Asia, Fukuoka is a truly understated destination. It has it all; monolithic shopping complexes, contemporary beach culture, and breathtakingly beautiful manicured green spaces, coupled with an ancient religious legacy of around 3000 sacred shrines and temples. And of course, when it comes to what to eat in Fukuoka, you have a gastronomic heritage with world-famous specialties waiting for you. One of these must-eat fukuoka specialties is mentaiko, an interesting delicacy of marinated fish roe, and the other is ramen! In Fukuoka, we’re not talking about any ramen, we’re talking about Tonkotsu ramen; a divinely creamy pork-bone based broth with thin noodles which are often cooked to the client’s request, topped with perfectly cooked slices of pork.
