Ichiran has its main store in Hakata, Fukuoka, which is the birthplace of tonkotsu ramen. The combination of rich tonkotsu (pork-based soup), thin noodles that are smooth, and a secret sauce made with more than 30 kinds of red peppers make a top grade bowl of ramen. Ichiran has a unique counter table where customers can strictly “concentrate on the flavor.” Both sides of each seat have a thin wall so that you can concentrate on tasting the goodness of ramen. A perfect way to fully appreciate the famous “Ichiran” ramen.
Customize your ramen
One of the unique points of Ichiran tonkotsu ramen is that you can customize your own ramen. You are required to fill in a form to choose the softness of the noodles, the thickness of the taste, the amount of garlic, if you want leek or not, and so on. (The form is available in English, Chinese, and Korean)
Only one special dish
Serving only Tennen Tonkotsu Ramen (790 yen), their specialty, you can enjoy their original tonkotsu soup accomplished after many years of research. You can also opt for a noodle refill option if you want to eat more for 190 yen.
Souvenir packs to enjoy Ichiran at home
Ichiran ramen is popular as a souvenir too. Kamadare Tonkotsu with a secret red pepper powder (790 yen each, 2200 yen for three) will give you the same experience as eating in the shop. Even a noodle refill is included.
