Marusen Seimen


Marusen (the seimen part just means "noodle maker") is far from your run-of-the-mill ramen counter. Marusen's specialty is Hakata noodles, the style popular in the area around Fukuoka and northern Kyushu. But you won't find the usual tonkotsu ramen, with its thick, white, savory broth cooked down from pork bones. Instead, the soup is made entirely from chicken: Daisen jidori chicken, free-range and organic.
