Recommended bowl: The blue bucket

You'll find neither sign nor shop hours posted outside Genki Ippai, just a blue bucket that master Doi-san hangs up to indicate when the shop is open. For years Doi-san enforced an eccentric set of rules, which were posted inside the shop. Included were a strict no photo policy, and a rigid set of guidelines outlining the order in which you were supposed to eat your ramen and spicy pickles. No talking aloud about ramen or ingredients, and no asking the staff questions... More

Go for the simple ramen and add extra curry noodles to it. Once you ate half the original bowl add the curry noodles which changes entirely the favour of the ramen.
This way you get two dishes for the price of one.

Second visit within a few days, this time with my son which made the communication much easier.
This time the Chef insisted that we try to add a special curry sauce to the ramen once we had eaten about half of it.
It completely changed the nature of their ramen. It had a very interesting taste, however I personally prefer the original taste.

One of the best Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen not only in Fukuoka but in Japan.
The Master Chef thawed since his son joined the business and explained to him that it does not hurt to be nice to the customer. One even can take a picture!
