No please I like that finger...how else will I do my Dr. Evil impression?
Okay...so it wasn't quite that dramatic, but I thought it might have come down to it if I didn't stop taking pictures of the place. Anyway, Kurume Taiho is like the capitol of ramen in Kyushu. My first sip had me saying "Kurume Taiho~~ly sh** this stuff is good!!" Seriously folks, Taiho is legit. The creaminess of the tonkotsu soup is indescribable and my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The gyoza may not have been that great, but the ramen was incredible. I'd gladly give up a finger for a bowl like this again.
It's about a 10-minute walk from Nishitetsukurume Station...I think. But if you can get to Kurume Station, just take a taxi. You'll thank me later. Open from 11am to 9pm and closed every 2nd and 4th Thursday. You are only allowed to take pictures of the food, but there are ways to get around that...hehe.
