Hakata Ikkousha Eki Marche Osaka Store

Enjoy a bowl of authentic Hakata tonkotsu ramen in front of Osaka station!

For today’s lunch, I went to “Hakata Ikkousha Eki Marche Osaka Store”, a ramen restaurant in Eki Marche Osaka, in front of Osaka station.
This is a restaurant specializing in Hakata ramen, and it is actively expanding and opening new branches not only within Japan, but also overseas.
I was curious about this restaurant every time I passed in front of it, so I decided to finally give it a try for the first time!
“Lunch set” (1000 yen)
This is an amazing value set available only on weekdays between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, and it includes a bowl of ramen and a donburi dish (bowl of rice with a topping,) both of which can be chosen respectively from the three available types!
I chose the “ajitama” ramen, which comes with a soft boiled egg marinated in soy sauce and mirin, and the “mentaiko gohan,” a bowl of rice topped off with spicy cod roe!


I scooped some of the white soup with the china spoon…


The tonkotsu (pork bone) taste is definitely there, yet it is light enough that it leaves a refreshing aftertaste – this is what an orthodox tonkotsu soup tastes like!


The noodles used are extrafine!


Ah, amazing!!
One can’t help but become addicted to how great these extrafine noodles feel as they go down your throat (^^


The thin roasted pork fillet…


The sweet flavor of the meat matches the taste of the soup perfectly!


“Mentaiko Gohan”


The delicious taste of the spicy cod roe encourages your appetite just right!


Super hot “karashi takana” (leaf mustard pickled with red pepper)…


This is not only hot but also savory, and it definitely makes you want to drink some beer with it (^^



Their weekday lunch set is a great deal!


The restaurant entrance is located at the west end of Eki Marche Osaka, which makes it a little difficult to find, yet customers keep coming in continuously!
The staff are really energetic, making the restaurant a lively and wonderful place!
I recommend this restaurant to anybody wanting to have some orthodox Hakata ramen in front of Osaka station!
