“Exceed expectation !!! WOW”

Taiho Ramen Main Store
Ranked #65 of 1,845 Restaurants in Kurume
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2017 via mobile

Read about Kurume being the birthplace of tonkotsu ramen. And Taiho ramen being one of the first few in this little town to start serving this wonderful ramen. Rumor has it that the pot that boiled the broth has never been turned off since its opening in 1954. We did see that legendary pot from where we were seated , it is partially hidden but sure looks old. The restaurant was packed on a Monday lunch when we made our way there from Fukuoka Airport. We ordered a set which includes the tonkotsu ramen (in thick broth) , fried rice and gyoza. The ramen is handmade and very chewy , and the broth is very tasty. This is the first time I have tasted ramen broth that comes with pork lard which adds on to the overall flavoring. I am never a fan of gyoza but I must admit that the ones they served are really good. I will probably give the fried rice a miss as i find it a bit too salty. It is overall a very satisfying experience for me and my wife. This is a ramen that no one should ever miss if you are in this part of Kyushu. On my final stop at Fukuoka , I tried again at their branch located in Tenjin. It is quite similar except that I find the broth a little too salty to my liking.
