The way the second floor if you go up there you can eat it that popular, way the individual, boost but because you're the lion we decide to try out the first floor and this is more like a restaurant style, but, I gotta say the interior is decorated really, really nicely it it kind of reminds me of those old fashioned, yeah Thais street, stalls that they used to have a lot in Tokyo but now you can only pretty, much find in here to program alright, my bowl of ramen is here check it out guys it looks just, like the, Ichigo back home in Tokyo, as. You can see that's the special, chilli sauce and my green onions got some charge to me here and the. Signature. Very. Thin noodles of each it on that. Lucky my house oh. That's. So good, gosh. I haven't have to cheat on I think in. About a year, I think I, sometimes get a really bad craving for you get along and you know so. Hmm. Perfect. Extra. Farm noodles just. The way I like it there's a charge you right there. Yeah. Super tender porky, this, lightly salted actually which. Is quite, nice it's. Not hard-boiled, either because, that would be terrible but, it's not runny either, so. I think it's better if I just put my egg inside. My ramen. Much. Better be gentle, to do. That guys soup. Bitch this, is Ray cheap the, spicy. Level is higher, than, double, than, the you know one so, let's eat the soup first. Mmm. The flavor is nice very. Beachy cautery like mass. Soup. And blue, dog is very. Good. Combination I like this tonkatsu, soup, whatever, I. Don't. Know how they make this a tonkatsu, soy sauce better so. Good so, perfect right, across the ichiran head the quarter rebound. Sweet shop it's called the joke yet so, this is baked, donut, the, texture is really soft. It's, a fluffy the, texture is like cake when. It's hot warm it's a warm, metallic. He must. Sometimes. Make. The donuts is, dry. Inside, but, this is not its moist it, so. Fluffy. And moist soft. And. Custody. Flavor, this, shop is called jokey. Jokey. Means steam it's like a steamed baked. Donut but, it's baked Donuts this is combat Edoras shopping street this is a one of the oldest a shopping street in Hakata really. The oldest. This is so interesting, you know like I never knew, that this existed, here it's located, right next, to that very modern, Canal City I'm so, happy we found this in lace I can't wait to explore so. This car bought the shop at IKEA there's 130. Years of history. So, it's a pretty old, shopping, arcade, and, probably one of the oldest in Japan I guess I love this atmosphere, and it's, up to yes. A knife, a lion. Life yes it's alive so. We're here at this pace car chin chin we decided to come here. It's about 2:30. P.m. because, this piece always has a long life, last, night we try to come here this huge line I refused, to wait over an hour for ramen right now there's hardly anybody here so perfect. Perfect timing, so this. Then. Boom okay, Olli mom, coming. Really. Cool. It's, all. Home. Cooks amami city how, can i enhance, its. Little. Bit. That. We do not think this. Is like a Mazda, the texture, is. So. Much choice, your PC's and Kikuta, get a green. Onion and 2. 1. 1. Boiled, egg. In. Ramen. Noodle. This. Is all good very. Good. And. It's, much. As we do in, Google. Many. Things in my mouth so, I got something called Jackie, Dom and I really, really want to try this this is something that you never, find in Tokyo not active ramen if I got me so bad but not yucky Rob it looks very different check it out there's, a lot of soup as you can see this. Is like the tone for the soup I think but. Not as much as like a soup it's not soup and then, I got some, mint. I go which, is another specialty, of Fukuoka this is a, spice. Cinnamon, marinated. Pollack. Roe fish. Roe I'm, gonna try it without the men tied for first. Pieces of pork in here green onions bean sprouts, and. Some. Of, the throw I see some that's, a squid. As well okay.
Let's Give this a try. Wow. And, the newbies are quite thin and just like the Hakata, style noodles fabulous. Oh, I. Love, this oh my gosh, it's not completely dry like frighteners and, it's not stupid like ramen it's, something. That's like in between you. Still get that char grill flavor from frying the noodles as well which is very nice, all. The flavors, of that tonkotsu. Broth but. With your addition of more ingredients. Such, as the, squid, as well as clams, you, got it colored you. Go whole bunch of ingredients here let's. Let's try it with the entire, year go, and try it with some of the abdomen, taiko which is. Huckabees, famous for it. I. Think. I'm on my favorite, pudding. So. We hopped, onto the bus 40, minute ride and we are at this place cuz I feel that I had a long history, mother, thousand, years fourteen, thousand years so first one we bought this one called the, mega emoji, from, Yasutaka. This. One outside, is speak, arise flour and rice flour and inside, is uncle. This. Is a very popular, specialties. In design, food so, firstly. I want to show you inside. The. Outside, is nicely. Created. Inside. Beautiful. Uncle, who. It's like omens you. Itadakimasu. It's. Like a gorilla to die kimochi. But. That. Surface. Is good. On, the on the IM plate, it's. Good. To little. Bit of curry curry socket, dough and sweet. Uncle. It's too bland good. The nice sweetness. Hmm. I choose, a little bit of movement in here by the way for, those of you guys don't know umma is Japanese, pickled plum and. This. Shop apparently, is a famous part because I also got there will, make juice there are pickled plum juice but. Inside, is a mixture of the umma pickles, as well. As the the adzuki bean paste sweet. Nozaki be pace and the outside is actually, very. Crispy, like subtle she says Saku toe and, because they, add the rice flour in, it's a little bit different from your usual, Japanese. Module, anyone watching that step of the roommate juice talk. Not. Well. I'm still refreshing oh my god I love. Who, made juice I love Umi, itself. I love blooming, shoe we just blew me like here I love who made anything it has such a fruity. Flavor and, so. Refreshing. I'm. So happy that we we came to visit here, because. You know I thought Fukuoka, was all about in a modern building using, a city life except. For that one place you know we visited, we also visited a shrine over there that was nice too but, here, I feel, like this is a must, visit place you, are here, in Fukuoka, I think. This is a very good sightseeing, place definitely when you come to jakka definitely. I found. This ice, bar, it's popsicle, sort, of alley and cruising, ice bar kazoo it's a root. Of the plant named, kuzu and it's. A starch, of coca is very famous for strawberry, I'm how. They. Are using a koozie star chip so, the texture is not crunchy. It has like a it's a crack generally. Frozen. Jello so, it won't melt so easily. See. No no no dripping no dripping today, is warm but, not ripping. Easy. To eat and. This is. So nice I love amoeba. So. This is from, a shop card tenzin and unfortunately, the shop is already closed we we, bought this room right before they put down their shutters and unfortunately, the shutter is already, down you, know what it's like jello. It the texture is more like jello than the popsicle, the. Taste kind. Of reminds me of, strawberry. Jell-o you know that the jello brand gelatin kind, of minds me of that but I know, all I know is that they use real strawberries, because like so she said a mouth, strawberries.
Are Very, famous, here in Kyushu. Hmm. Pays like strawberry, job all right guys before we leave does I who have to get one more thing because they are also famous for, this burger cut the desire burger. Check. It out it's pretty huge. It's they, make this burger with, their famous allah awj a Japanese, style fried chicken, because, kyushu's also famous for chicken, as well and I hear that they won an award for. This particular, burger, yes. And, it's only 550, in its it's quite reasonable that's. Like you know at five US dollars yet look it's it's, pretty big it's. Pretty big I'm, really looking forward to like, biting into this you, talking less. Whoa. There's some tartar. Sauce I, think, it's. Um uma infused, that's, right I think I read that on the board so. It's basically a collage. Of fried chicken burger, with, cumin. Infused, tartar, sauce imagine. How good that is and, there's, so much vegetables, in here there are like sliced onions, there's. A, coyote. Daikon. There's a cabbage. There's. Julienne. Carrots, and there's. Even a slice of grilled pumpkin, in here as well but. There's a lot of chicken here this is like a Japanese. Version, of those, fried cheese sandwiches, you see in America you, know what that, first bite I didn't, get the unit paste I only, got mostly tartar sauce I kind of imagined, that I tasted something tangy because I didn't you they, added umeå, sauce in here oh, that. Burst, of tankyness, cuts. Right through the deep fried chicken it, goes so well with a, deep fried chicken no, wonder they won an award it's amazing. All right so Toshi it is evening, time where are we going first. Here is coca. Yes so, we, had to go to ya Tai ya tai. Oh I've always wanted to go to one you know there are so many yeah ties here in the city I mean it's so iconic and, for. Some reason I've never been to one it's, always crowded. Today's. Lump is very special, yeah it's a little bit different okay not a little bit very different from degra, yeah type okay why are we looking forward to it it's located in front of Hokuto, in, Tanjung, area oh. Okay. So it shouldn't be that difficult to, find so, we are here at the terrace and amico its yatta, cuca, yeah. We've always wanted to show you guys what a yatta is basically. It's a food stand that's located on the street it's pretty much street food but they have tons. Of them here actually literally, hundreds. Of them here in Hakata, Fukuoka. And we've. Chosen one that's kind of unique you know this one's a bit stylish. And you're doing something new so we, want to check this place out of course, when you come to a tire first thing you do is you usually buy some a drink I got, the peach, cordial. And you, got your, whole culture so, whole go always a great, great yeah and yeah, you can get these with sparkling. Water or wine. Wine and that's my dedicated wide, so ready, yep, these, these, ingredients, are from Kyushu area yes yes and so um they're using local, fruit which is great. Cheers. A BiCMOS. What. OH, very. Fruity good great, live up there. I'm. Gonna start with something like an appetizer we, got something, that, the chef recommended, this is the cabbage, with anchovies, and it. Smells, amazing. Like, it. Smells so amazing my mouth is literally, watering. Right now now, let's take a bite of this talking. Loss. Whoa. Whoa. That's. Super. Flavourful, my, first I thought cabbage. And anchovies. You know what's so special, about that wasn't expecting too much of it but. He's using um garlic, for sure there's a bunch of garlic the, anchovy, gives it like that perfect saltiness. Not, too salty cabbage. Is soft but not overly, so it. Is a great, way to start dinner, mmm, great first dish I love it Tabitha. Anchovy, anchovy cabbage. Mm. Nice, antibiotic. Flavor it's, a good solid tunas you, take a surface socky. Shocky dog the, new earth can, in the solution Chiquito it's a cabbage, texture, and this entropy, is not fishy, it's. Super good at, one time there, used to be over, 400 yeah, ties here in the city. Unfortunately. Because of regulations, and, changes, there, are now around a hundred, so just 1/4, of what it used to be because. Of the strict regulations so, I just.
Hope That you, know they don't all disappear, because I think this. Some yeah tie makes. Hakata. Very, special, I think this is one of the the, major attractions, in Hakata check, this out guys this, is the second dish we ordered this, is the iron, skewers. That's what's this little menu and this is the set. Of three and, I think. I'm gonna, get this you should you mostly just get the set of three because it's a little cheaper. But, anyway check it out so we have in the middle that's under a chicken, there's, mushrooms that this is zucchini, with. Sea bream and tomato. Yeah. So I'm gonna give this a try. I think, I'm gonna start off with the, zucchini. How's, that okay something, refreshing here. We go. Oh my. God that's amazing. I, think he has. Like here's like Parmesan, cheese maybe on, there's definitely, Italian, spices, really. Good zucchinis cooked perfectly, and. There's. Tomato I'm gonna save the tomato for Satoshi cos he loves Tomatoes tomato. Green. Tomato it's, sweet, you know but. This is, more. Sweeter, much. Sweeter, then I want. To take a bite of this, right here the tandoori chicken that. Under you check it yeah. It's, a pretty sizable. Skewer. I think that's, good oh I. Mean this is my favorite so far like, so you got the flavour of tandoori, chicken on. A stick is grilled, to perfection on. So. Flavorful. This. Texture, is, half. Crunchy. Nicely. Grilled, and. The. Good. Things of this skirt is this, sauce, this. Sauce amazing. It's what. Should I say a little bit salty. But also sweet the. Mushrooms are very juicy by the way so they're not drying out not overcook, super. Well-balanced and like subtle she says there's a little bit of like a soy sauce flavor it's. Pretty, good it's kind of like in like a fusion. Between Japanese. And Western. Flavors, that's that's that's, how I would describe this the. Next one is homemade. Sausage. It's. Not, just sausage, I expected. At justice sources but, it did not it's great. It's potato and. Vegetables and, two. Sausages, and on. Top it's, lemon. Very. Stylish very stylish. I. Have. To say, this. Sausage is, really good because. Of the pork liver and, good, spice. Take. A shower. This. Texture. All, I have so much flavor in the. Outside is, a little crispy. Hmm. Has a snap, has, like peppery, a little, bit spicy with a kick, super. Super flavorful sausage, really. Really juicy and I'm, going to try some of this off mashed potatoes, I think these are mashed potatoes. Makes. The cloche is that we did not expect this to come with vegetables, and mashed potatoes and, some kind of sauce on it as well, definitely. Not gravy. Hmm. These. Mashed potatoes are definitely homemade, they are a little bit chunky they, are not completely smooth, I like, mashed potatoes like this of course I like the smooth one too but I like this one too and.
Then Let's try some of the grilled vegetables that come with it you got some like, mushrooms, you got bell pepper, you got a ringette mushroom baby, corn beans, I like. Baby part. Not. So good any, like house and. You know this is just a food stand he, takes pride in what he makes, look the vegetables, are charred grilled individually. Hmm. Once. Again the sausage. Is fantastic. No. Wonder. The, dishes served at this food stand is so, like, restaurant, quality and. This guy worked, at Nobu, historic at Nobu in London he also worked at a Michelin, star restaurant, in the past and now he is a food stand it's incredible, absolutely. Incredible we've. Eaten a lot of food what were some of the highlights for you yeah. Thai food, it's. Totally different from regular yeah, - yeah, interesting, I'm so glad we went there I'm also surprised, at the chef was, professionally, trained and he. Worked for admission sorry before it's like no no wonder, really, fantastic the, other thing that stood out for me was the. Fried chicken burger, I think thank you yeah, I'm, so glad we went there and that's, good too, definitely a highlight for me once, again there's so much iconic, food here in Fukuoka, that we haven't, tried we've only touched the surface so.
