On the coast of Kyushu Island in southwestern Japan lies the city of Fukuoka. This cosmopolitan metropolis features the modern architecture of Rem Koolhaas and Michael Graves, numerous shopping boutiques, and the shiny veneer of Japanese modernity. Scratch the surface, however, and you will discover traditional Hakata Town. Nothing embodies the richness of the region more than Hakata-style cuisine. From miso to sake, Hakata has added its own touch to Japanese culinary tradition. Now Hakata cuisine has found a new home in New York. Stroll the streets of Manhattan, drop by one of these fine establishments, and experience food Hakata-style!
