Review: Hakata Daruma (Fukuoka, Japan)

★★ Excellent!


Hakata Fukuoka Japan

Hakata Daruma

has been serving one of the most delicious chashu ramen and gyoza in Japan since 1963. Amazingly good!


Roasted Pork Chashu Ramen

This bowl of ramen comes with noodles, bean sprouts, chopped spring onions and blowtorched chashu slices, served in a nice tasty soup.

The soup is simmered with hind legs of a pig for hours, giving this soup a rich and vivid taste. The noodles are house-made using wheat. It is firm and springy, and tasty too! As for the chashu, these are thinly sliced pieces of pork belly with its cut surface flamed with a blowtorch. It is very flavourful. Its meat is soft and tender with some fatty parts. It is literally melts in my mouth! Amazingly good!

It is no wonder that this roasted pork chashu ramen is the bestseller in the store. I totally agree!


This bite-sized gyoza has a very thin skin wrapping a pork filling. Its skin has crispy undersides with a chewy body. Its pork filling is flavourful and literally melts in in mouth! This is goyza is wonderfully good, and a must-have add-on. Both thumbs up!
