FOUNDED in 1985 in Japan’s ramen capital of Hakata, Fukuoka, ramen king Shigemi Kawahara’s popular restaurant chain, Ippudo, is feted for the quality of its pork-broth noodles. After earning praise outside of Japan in cities such as New York, Hong Kong and Singapore, the restaurant has now finally arrived in Bangkok, bringing fine ingredients, well-honed recipes, considerate cooking, and heaps of flavour – as well as some unique, signature dishes.
When it comes to washing down your food, from juices and smoothies to cocktails and sake, Ippudo has an array of drinks to suit every taste (the refreshing Shochu night, which blends shochu, grapefruit juice and triple sec liqueur, is a must try. B165). Factor in efficient and genuinely friendly staff, and Ippudo is perfect for any occasion.
