“Mendo Hanamokoshi is one of the higher ranked ramen shops in Fukuoka that does not specialize in tonkotsu. Master Hirohata-san is self-taught and runs the shop solo, making everything from scratch.
Fresh noodles served in a multitude of stvles are house-made as well, on a noodle machine that sits near the entrance. Some customers opt for the chüka soba, made with a delicate chicken and fish-based soup, but Hirohata-san's most popular bowl is probably the nökö tori soba - a creamy chicken soup topped with succulent pieces of chicken chashu and limited to just 40 bowls per day. Only open for lunch for just a few hours. Since 2011.”

The soup is bright and creamy with grease drops on the surface. It is full of umami and creates a wonderful comfortable feeling. The Chashu is thickly cut and soft. By itself not a strong taste but with the soup a great bite. The noodles are thin and fully cooked.
A word class bowl.
