Founded in 1985 in Fukuoka’s Daimyo district, Ippudo is one of the two top ramen chains in town. This shop became famous for its Shiromaru Motoaji ramen which is cooked for over 18 hours to give its broth a rich and deep flavor. It also offers other bolder dishes like the Akamaru ramen (homemade flavored oil and spices) while keeping tradition as its base.
Ippudo is constantly innovating and expanding within Japan and abroad, and it can now be found in 12 countries around the world including locations in America, Europe and other parts of Asia. If you are a fan of the chain, then make the experience extra special by visiting Ippudo Daimyo, its original store. A new concept has also been launched in Fukuoka, Ippudo Stand. Besides the standard menu, here you can try a selection of Fukuoka and Kyushu’s best nihonshu (Japanese sake) at 500 yen per cup.
