博多らーめん ShinShin 天神本店
I forgot who, but someone told me that Shinshin was their favorite spot for Hakata ramen. With a location just minutes from where I get my hair cut locally (Frank's Chop Shop), I had to go.
I love when Hakata ramen restaurants have a massive side menu.
I especially love when they have mentaiko, spicy cod roe. It is one of the best things in Japan.
Hakata ramen and mentaiko, it's a classic combo.
Shinshin was strictly normal for me. Very group friendly, as you can get a few things on the side of your noodles, drink a few glasses of strong Kyushu shochu, and kick back.
A famous local spot indeed, you'll find all your favorite Japanese celebs have been here.
