Eating at Yatai (Food Stalls) In Nakasu, Hakata

ランチの後はキャナル・シティでお買い物をして、お茶をして、夫が電気屋さんを見たいというのでベスト電器に行き、ちょっと疲れて4時ごろホテルに戻りました。昨日も今日も沢山歩いて、両日共13000歩近く歩きました。日が当たると暑くて、日陰だと丁度気持ち良いお天気。夜は風が吹いて寒かったですが。

After lunch, we walked to Canal City, did some shopping, had coffee/juice then walked to a large Electronic Appliance Shop on my husband’s request and came back to our hotel room around 4.00pm feeling a little tired. We walked a lot yesterday and today, I walked nearly 13,000 steps by the night both days. It was hot when you walked in the sun but just nice in the shade although it was cold at night with strong winds.

夕食は、何度目かの福岡でやっと屋台デビュー。まずは中洲の屋台、「やまちゃん」で長浜豚骨ラーメン。豚骨の癖も多少あるものの、あっさりしたラーメンでした。こちらは数分待っただけで入れました。

We have been to Fukuoka a few times before but this is our first time to eat at the famous Yatai (food stalls). For dinner we went to Nakasu, where there are many food stalls and had Ramen in “Yama-Chan” first. Here we waited only for a few minutes before there was a space for us to sit on the stools at the counter.

そして、すぐ近くにあった「武ちゃん」で餃子を食べました。こちらは結構並んでいたのと、回転が遅く随分待って、中に入ってからも餃子が出てくるまで随分待ちました。グループごとに注文があってから具を包んで焼いていたので回転が遅かったようです。皮はカリッと焼けていますが、中身はペースト状で好みの食感ではなかったですし、味も余りおいしいと思いませんでした。昨日の「遊心」の餃子の方が断然美味しかったです。でも、屋台で食べるというのが面白いので、楽しい経験でした。

We then went to ‘Take-Chan’ for gyoza. There was a long queue here so we waited for a long time before getting inside, then waited for a long time before we were served gyoza. The chef was making only for one group of people at a time (for example, just what my husband and I ordered when it was our turn) so it was taking long to serve. Although the gyoza skin was nice and crispy I didn’t like the texture or taste of the filling very much. It was paste-like texture and didn’t taste as I expected. I much prefer the gyoza we had the day before. However, I did enjoy the whole experience of eating in these food stalls.
