Customers enjoy soup noodles prepared at Hakata Ippudo Ramen's main store in the Daimyo district of Fukuoka City, Fukuoka Prefecture Japan on 08 March 2013. The Hakata ramen soup noodles served at Ippudo are characterized by their thin, often al dente noodles and pungent ÒtonkotsuÓ soup, a creamy-colored broth painstakingly concocted from a pork bone- and collagen-based stock. It's named after the Hakata district of Fukuoka City, where the ramen house-per-capita population ratio is one of the highest in the country. Photographer: Robert Gilhooly
