A must while visiting Hakata is the outdoor street stalls lining the Nakasu and Tenjin regions. Look for Yatai Tenjin with the blue noren curtain. Of coursethere is ramen here, but you can also get homemade gyoza, eggs with mentaiko (cod roe), oden, pork skewers and more. The owner is trained in both French and Japanese cuisine and showcases other unique dishes such as asparagus grilled in butter. Pair it with interesting wines available in this little unexpected stall.
