Glorious ramen. This hot noodle dish is such a welcome treat when it's raining or when it's cold outside. When I visited Fukuoka, Japan, I was quite lucky as I stayed a stone throw away from this well-known restaurant. SHIN SHIN is the place to try out when in Fukuoka as it's a different take on how noodles are done.
SHIN SHIN is located in a street just off Tenjin underground mall. Northern side, it's quite easy to find as long as you have google map. Plus, you can't miss it as there is usually a line outside.
Since I was just alone, I was seated at the bar. The place isn't big and could only accommodate a few but the turn over is pretty fast. So, you won't need to worry about waiting too long.
I had an order of grilled chicken stick and it was pretty normal. I think this was just on the menu as it's a great partner to beer. People go here for the ramen, so I guess that's the must order.
As you could see, here's the result. The noodles were not too big nor are they soggy. They're pretty good that you'll be pressed to order kae-dama or an extra order of noodles. The soup is pretty good. Not too thick and oily, it sure is amazing.
When visiting Fukuoka, SHIN SHIN is a must. Granted that this is the birth place of Ichiran and Ippudo, this shin shin is best known as a local's favorite.
Of course, one of the must things to do when in Japan is to visit a Konbini or convenience store. Their food is way better than your ordinary neighborhood store.
