My brother visiting meant that this was a time of travel. We had eaten bowls of ramen in Tokyo, had our fair share of soup in Osaka and Kyoto, but now it was time for a trip to Kyushu. The first night in Fukuoka means that we can only do one thing: go to a food stall. We ordered some ramen and their recommendation of crispy gyoza.

Fukuoka-ken, Fukuoka-shi, Chūō-ku, Tenjin, 1丁目

The Bowl
The bowl was a pretty standard tonkotsu, but it reminded me how different Fukuoka's tonkotsu can be. The thin chashu and thin noodles were all easy to eat, and the broth was light and refreshing, unlike the tonkotsu I'm used to eating. Instead of a full meal, a snack to get you through your next beer.

The gyoza, on the other hand, were great. They were crispy and small enough to pop in your mouth one after another.

Would I Go Again?
I would almost go back just for the gyoza. But I'd sooner hit another food stall.

Should You Go?
You should go to a food stall, you don't have to make it Pyonkichi.
