Fukuoka is famous nationwide for its extremely tasty and rich pork-broth Tonkotsu Ramen. In contrast to south-japanese Ramen, which relies a lot more on Miso as an ingredient, Fukuoka Ramen has a strong and distinctive taste which made it popular beyond the borders of Kyushu and Japan itself. There are literally thousands of restaurants and stalls where Tonkotsu can be eaten and one of the most famous places certainly is Ippudo.
“Ippudo” in direct translation means “one wind hall”, and this is named because at the time, there were dark clouds over the Kyushu ramen industry, and the founder CEO Kawahara intended to “blow wind and revolutionise the era”. The first Ippudo restaurant opened in 1985, in the Daimyo District of Fukuoka City. Gradually the number of restaurants expanded from regional areas to the whole of Japan, mainly in the Kanto and Kansai regions. In 2008 the first overseas restaurant opened in New York City and Ippudo NY has been praised many times in the press for its ramen bowls.
