Treats Off The Beaten Path
The restaurant folks generally don't speak English, but that's OK.
Many of the best restaurants in Japan have no plastic food, photos on the menu, or any English.
Not a problem if a Foodie takes you there!
Unique Fukuoka Legend
We have been enjoying this dish at its secret location away from the city center since 1985. It never disappoints.
Superb Raw Fish
Kyushu is known for its amazing variety and quality of fresh fish. We know a few spots that are well worth visiting. There are no knives and forks on the premises.
Good Enough for Meat Eaters
Delivering real taste-sensations, one of the area's first vegan cafe-restaurants offers burgers & fries, salad, and non-meat "fried chicken" seasoned so well you'd think it was the real thing. Decadent- but vegan, so let's go here!
Hands Down The Best
This dish made from specially-raised pork from Kagoshima is nothing like any tonkatsu you have ever experienced. And you think you've had tonkatsu... oh, just wait!
There's something about broth that has been simmering for days, combined with kata-men, firm noodles, and slices of roast pork garnished with pickled ginger, sesame seeds, and spring onions. Ramen is greater than the sum of the parts. Well worth the trip to the mecca, Hakata, where this legendary dish comes from!
Sri Lankan Curry
Since the 1980's Fukuoka City has hosted Sri Lankan chefs, as we are real curry lovers. Now, this is one of the best cities for tasting this great cuisine.
The unique blend of spices is a bit different from Indian. The meal shown above is vegetarian.
More Great Food!
From Hakata and beyond! We have great Japanese, Korean, Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, French, and more...
Did you know that Fukuoka has been home to awesome Sri Lankan restaurants since the 1980's? Don't miss it!
