It is located in a back alley of Daimyo, an area that is home to lots of brilliant ramen restaurants. The company's main site, which is located in Shirogane, Fukuoka City, is called "Shochu (distilled alcoholic beverage) Bar Mogura." So it is no wonder that Moguragaorewoyondeiru always stock a great range of shochu. You can expect to find over 100 options to choose from any give time!

The ramen comes in a delicious soup that is made from just pork bones. It is prepared without using lard or the fatty upper part of roast pork. This process means that the tonkotsu (pork bone) stock is not very greasy and leaves a pleasant aftertaste even if you slurp up every last drop! The owner, who is called Gondo, once stated, "I would never get tired of this soup, even if I had it every day." Hakata's much-loved thin-style noodles are the other key component of this tasty dish. They have a good bite that combines perfectly with the slightly sharp taste of the broth.

There are no unusual characteristics to report about when it comes to Moguragaorewoyondeiru's tasty soup and noodles but they offer some wonderfully unique toppings. In Fukuoka, a common topping for ramen is char siu pork. However, inside this eatery you can expect to find various options, including soboro (seasoned and fried mince meat) and the type of flaky daikon radish you usually see in oden (various ingredients stewed in dashi stock). The daikon is an excellent match for the soup. This topping helps add a sense of depth to the tonkotsu soup. Don't worry if you like char siu as this is also featured on the menu. Feel free to choose whatever option best fits your mood.

As the establishment is an izakaya, you'll notice a number of single dishes designed to be enjoyed alongside alcohol are available to order. Be sure to sample the tofu stewed in tonkotsu soup, potato salad, fried chicken wings, and other items that go well with shochu. The interior is reminiscent of a renovated apartment that has a cool retro Showa (1920s to 1980s) vibe! The design and decorations have created a nostalgic, homely atmosphere for members of the public.
