With a review of 4,6/5 on google and award winner of the best Gyoza in Japan, visiting Hakata Choten was a must. At first, it’s a Ramen noodles restaurant like any other until you’ve opened the menu. You are educated on how to eat noodles, what is Ramen and how to eat these noodles. “A passion poured in creating every Ramen bowl, a sentence written on the menu’s first page.”


New learning: choose the texture of your noodles (futsuu, kata, and barikata). Choose the intensity of the soup (assari, futsuu, and kotteri). The menu is written in three languages, English, French, and Japanese. The plates are explained in detail for you to know their ingredients and content. 

Unfortunately for me, everything contains garlic, but I couldn’t handle not eating. I knew that I would get sick but who cares when I’m on vacation! I love this kind of food. PS: the garlic turned out to be present but not too harmful.


The Gyoza deserves an award. Fattier than any I had before, fried to perfection giving them a crunchy envelope. Oily, they slide on your lips making you want to lick them.

OMG! The ramen noodles are awesome! Just had lunch and the missing flavors I missed at “Taiyo Bento” are found here! Every bowl is loaded with life, fun, passion and the soul of Japan. The sauce, the noodles quality, the ingredients, everything is just perfect! The pork ramen is excellent, the one with the secret miso sauce is phenomenal. I know that I was going to get sick, my head was aching, my belly rumbling but I couldn’t stop.


Top! Two of the best Ramen bowl restaurants in Paris are located on the same street a few meters apart.
