I write only about one stall - 'Mami Chan' in Tenjin in front of the Fukuoka Bank building. It is the only tourist friendly one I came across as it had menus hanging on the outside in English, Thai and Chinese. All the other stalls...More

Fukuoka (called Hakata in the olden days) is the best place to find any restaurant in Japan. And Fukuoka has the best Yatai or Street Food Vendors in Japan. This is a MUST DO in Fukuoka.
