A famous restaurant known as the birthplace of "kaedama"!

Ganso Nagahamaya
What does Kaedama mean? Well, once you finish the original serve of noodles in your Ramen bowl and wish for more delicious noodles, you can order a "Kaedama", which is an extra serve of noodles for a little surcharge. Ganso Nagahamaya, founded in 1952, is known as the first shop to have offered this unique service. The restaurant is about a 10 minute walk from Akasaka station, Fukuoka City Subway. Making ramen for the visitors of the nearby Fukuoka Central Wholesale Fish Market originally, the founder wanted to offer extra value and started offering refills of noodles because he wanted it to be a cheap, satisfying meal. The word of mouth recommendations spread quickly and widely and now many ramen restaurants in Fukuoka Prefecture have adapted and kaedama has become a well known feature of Fukuoka ramen.
Ganso Nagahamaya
Ganso Nagahamaya's Ramen is a perfect example of the classic Hakata tonkotsu ramen style. You can enjoy cloudy, white tonkotsu soup and thin straight noodles: a great combination that has not changed ever since its establishment. The soup has a smooth texture and is slightly salty, so even when you add a second serve of kaedama noodles, the soup's deliciousness does not decrease.

Being a genuine ramen speciality store, there is only ramen and ramen toppings on the menu, no other side dishes. They also serve alcohol here. It is currently open from 6am until after midnight until 1:45am. It is very convenient when you want to enjoy a bowl of ramen after partying and drinking with your friends late at night or early in the morning for breakfast? Or any time in between!
