Hakata Ramen at Yatai


Food stalls “Yataiis one thing to enjoy in Fukuoka. Despite a decline in recent year, there

are said to be more than 160. The food stalls have all kind of food, but you have to try

Hakata ramen, usually made with white soup from pork bone and thin noodles. When you

order, you can specify noodle texture, such as yawa, meaning “soft”, or bari-kata, meaning

 “very hard”. In local dialect bari means “very”.  Anther unique thing is kaedama.


The thin noodles takes moments to cook, so you can just order an additional noodle serving,

but don’t drink too much soup before ordering more noodles. Besides ramen stalls, there are

gyoza dumpling stall, Western-style bar stalls and more. It’s hard to pick out just one.

The stalls have a unique and strange appeal. Eating in such cozy spaces with others creates 

a friendly feel of community.
