Fukuoka: Top Local Dishes to Try!

When you think of Fukuoka, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Yup, Ramen!!!

Fukuoka is home to one of the best ramens you can ever taste in Japan, the birthplace of the tonkotsu (hakata) style ramen, known for its milky-white pork bone broth goodness that we are most familiar with in Manila.

But the Kyushu region has much more cultural and gastronomical feasts to offer. Situated in Japan’s third-largest island and close to Korea and China, Fukuoka has developed a unique interesting culture that has been influenced by Korean and Chinese cuisine.

These local specialties are probably best sampled at popular yatai street food stalls found around the city. Here are our top recommendations…
