Striving to create a "White Ramen" like none other!

Kanadaya Honten
Enjoy pristine white bubbling tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen broth! The "White Ramen" that Kanadaya Honten serves its customer is not your run of the mill bowl of noodles. The restaurant is based in Yukuhashi City, the northeastern part of Fukuoka Prefecture. As one of Fukuoka's most famous ramen restaurants, the establishment welcomes customers come from far and wide into their premises. Some individuals travel a long distance so that they can sample the ramen that is available!
Kanadaya Honten
The best known feature of Kanadaya Honten's tonkotsu ramen is the beautiful white color of the broth. There is nothing else in Fukuoka quite like it! In order to create the broth, the restaurant starts by cooking the pork bones, removing the bitter taste, and then skimming off the scum from the surface. The stock then simmers for at least 20 hours. It is then left so that the flavor can intensify before it is ready to serve. The composition of the broth is delicately poised... If you heat up the main pot, the profile will start to change. To avoid this kind of issue, the restaurant dishes out a small portion of the broth from the big pot each time they take an order. This is then heated up (a bit like a cup of coffee) and then served to the diner. This approach helps intensify the flavor. Even though the soup has a strong taste, it is does not feel heavy in the stomach.

When talking about the process of making noodles, Kanada joyfully stated "I want to create ramen that is not like anything else. I'm challenging myself to learn how I can achieve this aim. I really want to make classic yet one of a kind tonkotsu ramen. But I know that is kind of a contradiction, right?" It seems that these words are the driving force that have inspired the owner to continuously evolve and develop ever since the restaurant was founded in 2009.
