yatai in fukuoka

Our day in Fukuoka was spent shopping in Canal City Mall and eating at yatai, open air food stalls. Yatai are scattered around the city but behind Canal City there is a long strip of 20 yatai located next to a cute river. We got lost trying to find the yatai because we had left Canal City to try to explore the city, which didn't really happen - darn laziness!

Most of the stalls didn't seem to speak any English but thankfully I had Alanna so she could read the menu. The famous local dish here is Hakata Ramen, thin ramen noodles in pork bone soup (tonkotsu) which is what we ordered - so freaking delicious! Love the thin noodles and the tonkotsu broth was so yummy!
