Mendo Hanamokoshi Description

Mendo Hanamokoshi is a celebrated ramen establishment in Fukuoka, distinguished for its exceptional toripaitan (thick chicken broth) ramen. This standout dish is especially noteworthy given Fukuoka's renown for Tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen.
The chef's dedication is evident not just in the delectable dishes, but also in the meticulously crafted noodles, the unique restaurant interior, and even the background music selection. Newcomers are encouraged to start with the basic menu, which provides a gateway to the restaurant's culinary artistry. The flavors are intricate yet smooth, showcasing the harmonious blend of ingredients.
One of the most raved-about features is the homemade noodles. These are thin yet perfectly textured, making each bite an experience to savor. They pair seamlessly with the soup, creating a sublime balance that lingers on the palate.
The rich yet mellow Hanamokoshi-style Hakata tonkotsu broth is a testament to the chef's expertise. It captures the essence of white chicken broth, condensed to deliver a burst of flavor in every spoonful. For those seeking variation, the “red ball” kaedama, noodles infused with chili oil, offers a tantalizing twist.
Despite its popularity, the restaurant maintains an intimate setting with only six counter seats. It's not uncommon for eager diners to queue up, anticipating the unparalleled ramen experience that lies ahead. In a city brimming with ramen establishments, Mendo Hanamokoshi stands out, redefining standards and delighting patrons with its unparalleled offerings.

Love the noodle that is made by the chef and his relentless passion for his work: for food, for the unique interior, the music he plays as BGB... fun to go. Menu in the photos are special anniversary menu, you got a try his basic menu.


Translated from Korean:
4th visit to Fukuoka. Where you come every time. The best ramen for me and my wife. Rich tori soba is good, but Chinese soba is the best for us!


Translated from Japanese:
I got the thick chicken ramen.
It is a ramen made by adding seafood to a chicken-based soup, and thin noodles are typical of Hakata.
Even the tossed egg was delicious. I would like to ask you again.
