What are so special?
Fukuoka is known in the culinary world for its historical street food scene, especially its rich and tasty ramen. At Uma Uma Izakaya Restaurant and Bar, chefs encapsulate the Fukuoka experience through delicious Japanese dishes. The experience is best completed with an order or two of cocktails from its sister establishment, The Horse’s Mouth, located just next door.
Uma Uma is not only an excellent after-work chill-out spot, but is also great for lunches, crediting to its mouthwatering selection of original Hakata ramen. Their signature ramen, Uma Uma Ramen – $14, features tender pieces of chasiu, spring onion, umami-packed black fungus, and egg in spicy miso broth.
Just like Fukuoka itself, Uma Uma has more to offer its patrons than just ramen, most notable of which is their most raved-about Yaki Chasiu – $8, slices of pork belly grilled to melt-in-your-mouth perfection.
Other not-to-be-missed items on Uma Uma’s menu are Chicken Karaage – $8, Japanese fried chicken; Dashi Maki Tamago – $6, rolled omelet; and Spicy Tuna Don – $7.
Cocktails are served after 5:30 in the afternoon, a wonderful prelude to a relaxing evening after work. Popular choices include Whisky Sour, Aphrodisiac, and The Black Pearl. Wine, sake and beer are also available for those who want their drinks straight up simple.
