Hakata Udon


Legend has it that Fukuoka/Hakata is the birthplace of udon.
It’s been claimed that Rinzai Zen Buddhist monk Enni Ben’en introduced udon making, at first, here in Hakata following his return home from China during the Kamakura period. A stone monument in Jotenji Temple of Hakata has an engraving stating that this is the origin of Udon-Soba as well.
The characteristics of Hakata udon are soft and tender noodles with refined broth. The local-favorite toppings are burdock fries and fried fish cake along with a side order of kashiwa rice ball - a Fukuoka-specialty flavored rice ball with chicken. Now, that’s Hakata style.
