The only thing better than eating ramen at a yatai along a river in Hakata is...drinking beer then eating ramen at a yatai along a river in Hakata. If I can recall, Yamachan may have not been the best bowl I've tasted, but the surroundings made it one of the best bowls I've ever experienced. Eating ramen at a yatai should be on everyone's bucket list. Want more than just ramen? Yamachan also serves yakitori, oden, and beef tongue!
From Canal City, just head North along the Nakasu River and pass through Nakasu-Seiryu Koen (park). The yatai's will all line up just South of 春吉 bridge. You can't miss them! Open from 5pm to 2am.
