Fukuoka’ is famous for “Ramen”, especially “Nagahama Ramen” is a very popular brand. Why don’t you eat “Nagahama Ramen” for your breakfast? “Ganso Nagahanmaya” is the one why it is called “Ganso (Originator), because of those three reasons;
Firstly the menu is only “Ramen” and “Alcohol drinks”. Secondly you need to buy the food tickets from the vending machine and give it to the Ramen chefs.
Lastly and most importantly when you give the ticket to the chefs you need to tell him specifically what kind of ‘Ramen’ you want, by mentioning what kind of noodle you prefer (length of time the noodle is boiled), whether you want chefs to add special ‘oil’ for your ‘Ramen’, and how much of the toppings (spring onion) you want.
Let’s practise how to order noodle as you want, shall we? You need to MEMORIZE this chart!!
“Nama” – “Raw noodle”
“Kata” – a little bit harder than “Al dente”
“Futsuu”– normal boiled time
“Yawa” – a bit softer (longer boiled time)
“Beta” – quite a lot
“Futsuu” – normal amount
“Nashi” – no oil
Topping ‘spring onion’
“Negi (spring onion) oome- a bit more than normal amount
“Negi mori” – quite a lot
Here is the check test before ordering it at “Ganso nagahamaya”. What kind of noodle a customer want if he/she says, “Beta Kata Negi mori”?
There is “Beni shouga (red pickled ginger) and sesame available for your own toppings. If you are quite hungry why don’t you try “Kaedama”( you can get the noodle only in your left over bowl) or “Kaeniku” (you can get the meat only in your left over bowl)? It costs 100 yen only each!!What a bonus! Let’s create YOUR OWN RAMEN!
