Tanaka Shoten: Get a Taste of Hakata Ramen in Tokyo

by Yuri

If you are looking for that nostalgic taste of tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen you have probably tasted in Fukuoka, Tanaka Shoten is the place to go. Situated in the outskirts of Tokyo, Tanaka Shoten is known to serve one of the best Hakata/Nagahama-style ramen in a distance just outside the boundaries of metropolitan Tokyo.

What is Hakata and Nagahama ramen?

 

Hakata and Nagahama are two districts in Fukuoka city, an urbanized city situated at the northern parts of the Kyushu region. Hakata-style and Nagahama-style ramen used to have different tastes but are presently indistinguishable.

 

Hakata/Nagahama ramen have soup made from tonkotsu (pork bones). The pork bones are boiled for an amount of time at high heat in order to extract the rich flavor from the pork bone marrows. The noodles used are thin and white, with a very firm texture.  

 

Tanaka Shoten, unlike the other tonkotsu ramen shops, is an independent restaurant which originated from Tokyo itself. It is not a branch of any ramen restaurant chain from Fukuoka.
