The restaurant known as one of the representatives of Omuta Ramen!

Fukuoka Prefecture is home to all kinds of ramen dishes. A variety of delicious noodles have developed within the area. Some of the most famous local delights include Hakata ramen, Nagahama ramen, and Kurume ramen. If you dig a little deeper, you will find that other fantastic dishes were also cultivated within the region, such as "Omuta ramen." This tasty treat originated in Omuta City, which is located towards the south of Fukuoka Prefecture. Fukuryuken is a well-established eatery that serves Omuta ramen. The premises are about a 10-minute walk from JR Omuta Station. Since its founding in 1963, the business has passed on from one generation to the next.
▲ Ramen
Fukuryuken's ramen is served in a tonkotsu (pork bone) based soup. The moto-dare (condiment that is added to the soup stock) is made from a stew that is used to prepare char siu pork. This helps gives the ramen broth a rich yet slightly sweet quality. No lard is used in the process, which ensures a refreshing aftertaste. I was born in Omuta, so these noodles fill me with a sense of nostalgia. However, people from all ages and backgrounds will find the wonderful flavors very accessible.

The noodles are slightly thick and the amount is larger than those associated with Hakata ramen. The large bowl of ramen they serve comes with two portions of noodles. So make sure to order a large if you are feeling particularly hungry! Their wontonmen (noodles served with wonton dumplings) have also become very popular! The smooth texture of the dumplings is amazing!
