一風堂 outside2
At Fukuoka, people only eat Tonkotsu (Pork bone soup) Ramen. 25 years ago, you had to go to Fukuoka to have some, but now its available all over Tokyo and the most famous Tonkotsu ramen shop in all of Japan is IPPUDO which has multiple locations in Tokyo. Ippudo became famous because it won the grand prize at a ramen competition TV program about 15 years ago. They originally had only one shop in Fukuioka, but now they have over 50 shops through out Japan and also in Singapore, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York.

一風堂 白丸元味
Compared to other Tonkotsu ramen shops, Ippudo uses original names for their ramens and they are also a little different from others. The basic ramen at Ippudo is called Shiromaru Motoaji (Original Simple Ramen) for 750 yen. Unlike other Tonkotsu ramen's its not as oily and the smell of pork is limited.

一風堂 赤丸新味
My favorite is AKAMARU KASANEAJI (Rich Flavor Ramen) for 850 yen. It has Mayu (fried garlic oil) & red pepper paste in it, but its not spicy at all.

一風堂 からか麺
Other ramens are KARAKA MEN (Spicy ramen) for 850 yen,

一風堂 本店かさね味
HONTEN KASANEAJI (Mildly flavored ramen) for 850 yen,

一風堂 つけ麺
and also TSUKEMEN for 880 yen.

一風堂 博多ひとくち餃子
They have GYOZA for 420 yen (Fukuoka gyoza's are 1/3 of the size of regular gyoza's),

一風堂 明太子ごはん
and also METAIKO GOHAN (Rice with Season Cod Roe) for 280 yen, which you can only find at Fukuoka style Tonkotsu ramen shops.

一風堂 inside2
The portion of noodles are about half the size of normal ramen. Because of this people order extra noodle, which is called KAEDAMA for 100 yen. You can also choose how hard/soft you want your noodles cooked. Ippudo is family friendly, young staff, great service, clean, modern and taste good for almost everyone. So if you wanna try Tonkotsu ramen for the first time, I highly recommend to try out Ippudo and then try other shops. It has kind of become the standard of Hakata style Tonkotsu ramen for most people in Japan.
