When talking about Hakata's most representative gourmet food, many people will probably think of ``food stalls.''
At night, many food stalls line the sidewalks, and during the day, the commercial area where businessmen roam is transformed into a quaint streetscape.
Among the many food stalls in Hakata, the one that stands out is Nakasu Yatai. It is a popular gourmet spot where even first-time tourists can easily enter and interact with the locals.
Hakata is characterized by its mild climate, making it possible to set up food stalls year-round. As a result, a unique food stall culture has blossomed, and today it has become a tourist spot that attracts attention not only from local residents but also from both Japan and abroad.
The recommended menu at Nakasu Yatai is the Hakata ramen, which has a delicious pork bone soup. You can enjoy authentic ramen at a reasonable price that can only be found at a food stall.
The charm of Nakasu Yatai goes beyond traditional food stall menus such as ramen and oden. There are many food stalls offering a wide range of menus, including Western and Okinawan cuisine, so no matter how many times you visit, you'll always find something new.
