Restaurant New Inaba / 食事処 ニュー因幡


In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, some of the restaurants might have taken various measures such as reducing business hours or temporarily closing their doors. For more information, please check the relevant facility's official website or social media account.


Restaurant New Inaba― A place to enjoy Dashi-based nibbles and drinks!

食事処 ニュー因幡
"Restaurant New Inaba" is located in the restaurant area called "Hakata Ichibangai" on the B1F of JR Hakata Station. As the name suggests, this is an affiliated store of "Inaba Udon", which is known as one of the representatives of Hakata Udon restaurants. However, unlike other stores, Restaurant New Inaba offers not only Udon noodles, but also their own menu that makes the best use of Dashi (broth). For example, in the morning, in addition to the standard set of Udon and Kashiwa Onigiri (rice ball prepared with chicken meat and stock), they also have a teishoku set meal where you can enjoy miso soup that makes the best of Dashi with ham and eggs or simmered fish. While after 3PM, you can enjoy izakaya menus such as "Mentai Potato Salad" and "Edamame", as well as one-of-a-kind dishes that make use of Dashi such as "Gyu-suji Nikomi" (Simmered beef tendon), "Agedashi doufu" (Deep fried tofu), and "Dashi Maruten". You can enjoy the taste of Dashi from morning till night. (* Currently, the breakfast menu is temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the number of dishes served at night is limited.)

The classic warm soup udon noodles includes the "Gobouten (Burdock Tempura) Udon," "Ebiten (Shrimp Tempura) Udon," "Maru-ten Udon," and "Niku-Gobouten (Meat and Burdock Tempura) Udon". Basically, the characteristic of Inaba Udon is to use udon noodles that have been boiled, but a dish called "Tokusei (Special) Hakata Hoso-udon", which is made by freshly boiled thin noodles rinsed in cold water and dipping them in warm soup, is also gaining popularity.

In fact, "Restaurant New Inaba" was open from 1962 to 1992 in a restaurant district"Nishitetsu Meitengai Aji no Town" in Tenjin, Fukuoka City. The new style Inaba Udon restaurant, which was one of the first place to focus on Dashi cuisine, still shows its presence.
