Enjoy ramen and yakimeshi (fried rice) in Kurume "shokodo-kei (cafeteria style)" restaurants!

Maruyoshi Shokudo
Ramen in Kurume City, Fukuoka Prefecture is associated with "shokudo-kei (cafeteria style)" restaurants. These establishments weren't originally ramen restaurants. Initially they were cafeterias that served a wide range of dishes. This trend is perhaps most clearly evident in the development of an eatery called Maruyoshi Shokudo. The establishment is located close to Tsubuku and Yasutake Stations on the Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line.

Maruyoshi Shokudo is open from 11:00 to 21:00 and welcomes a steady flow of customers throughout the day. The establishment, which was founded in 1967, serves ramen in a soup that is made exclusively from tonkotsu (pork bones). Even though the taste has a clean quality, the flavor of the tonkotsu broth still really comes through. You'll want to eat the dish every day. It's almost a staple of Japanese cuisine... Like miso soup! It is a nice touch that even the restaurant's standard bowl of ramen is topped with char siu, green onions, yude tamago (boiled egg), and nori (seaweed). It goes really well with restaurant's popular yakimeshi (fried rice). So make sure to sample the dishes together!
Maruyoshi Shokudo
In Kurume, most shokodo-kei ramen restaurants have become quite specialized. You will find that the majority are primarily focus their energy on ramen. However, Maruyoshi Shokudo is a little different. They have a wide range of items on their menu, including champon noodles, yakisoba (stir-fried noodles), horumon (grilled offal), and yakiniku (grilled meat). Diners can also add dishes to a bowl of rice and butajiro (pork miso soup) to create their own set meal. There is a selection of a la carte items available, which is in keeping with the cafeteria-style setting. This famous establishment has a great vibe. Feel free to visit by yourself or with family!
