Here’s a gentle reminder from their menu on how to enjoy Ikkoryu Fukuoka’s ramen:
We couldn’t contain our excitement when we saw the bowls of ramen that are going to be served on our table, but since we need to share it to you dear readers, we stood up to take photos of all the ramen bowls salivating to its enticing aroma. From the photo below, you could see that the noodle is a little bit different, but worry not as it really compliments the Tonkotsu soup of Ikkoryu Fukuoka.
The original and hearty Tonkotsu ramen garnished with green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear mushroom, dried seaweed and generous amount of Chashu (pork).
The soup as what Mr. Komoru says is the ramen house’s ‘life’, he says that it’s similar to the one that their chains in Japan also serve. The broth is a little bit stronger and leaves an after-taste to one’s palate. The aji tamago, the umami seasoned soft-boiled egg, is everyone’s favorite! They even gave us another round of the tasty eggs, no pun intended!
Being a miso ramen lover, I took over the whole bowl of Ikkoryu’s miso Tonkotsu ramen, I can say that it’s a strong contender to the top post in my list of favorite ramen. The miso paste and the tonkotsu broth is a perfect combination too. JoTan and KC would be my witnesses that I finished it within minutes!
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen also makes special ramen like: Special Vegetable Paste Tonkotsu, for a healthier broth option; Spicy Tobanjan Tonkotsu, for those who likes their broth spicier; and Black Garlic Tonkotsu.
Ramen with spicy Tobanjan paste, resulting in an absolutely appetizing and wholesome flavor.

After devouring ourselves with six large bowls of ramen, we all wear a smile in our face, a result of a good and satisfying dinner props to Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen. Unfortunately they don’t allow take-out of their delicious ramen and as of now a “no-reservation” policy is still being implemented. But with the amount of people ready to wait to be served with Ikkoryu’s ramen, I know that it’s not only Ebisu who’s working it’s magic, but also the quality and taste of their hearty dish.
Recently, a second branch was opened at SM Aura at Bonifacio Global City and it’s a good reason to try them out. I heard that they are the only ramen house in that posh SM chain.
