Fukuoka Short Trip | 福岡小旅行

週末福岡に行ってきました!
福岡はほんとにおいしいものがたくさんなイメージです。

福岡で食べたもの:
餃子、餃子、餃子(一口餃子がほんとにおいしい)
ふぐ、天ぷら、水炊き、もつ鍋、…(オムライス、イタリアン…)

ラーメンは個人的にそこまで好きではないので(まさかの)
食べてないのですが
ふぐとか、そこまで高くないのに、ほんとにおいしくて…

とりあえず初日は(妹にしたい)大事な友達の誕生日どんぴしゃだったので福岡飯よりも
BDプレートを書いてくれるお店を選びました!
(だってこの日成人だったの!!)

それにしてもカンパチもムール貝も美味しかった…

I went to Fukuoka Prefecture over the weekend.
Everything I eat there is just so delicious!
Things I ate in Fukuoka : Gyoza (Japanese dumplings), fugu (blow fish), tempura, mizutaki (kind of nabe) motsunabe (kind of nabe), omurice, italian.......etc

Fukuoka is also famous as Sapporo (Hokkaido) is famous for ramen, but I personally don't like ramen so much, so I didn't eat it in Fukuoka......lol

On first day of my Fukuoka Trip -  it was my friend's 20th birthday!
So I chose to eat at a restaurant that can serve birth day plates....
And here it is, greater amberjack and mussels!




あとは餃子…?
鉄板餃子も、食べたのですが、あまりにお腹空いてて写真撮るの忘れました(バカ)
So here is gyoza, Japanese dumplings! Fukuoka is famous for one-bite size gyoza.
It's smaller than normal gyoza. I also ate gyoza in hot plate, but just forgot take a snapshot....



なぜかオムライスも食べました




もつ鍋も水炊きも写真撮るの忘れました(バカ)

あとは地元の人にしか知られてない(らしい)[金のめし]という定食屋さん、
福岡のお米や、食材を使用していて
おむすび、豚汁、漬物、おかず1品で580円。しかもけっこうおなかいっぱいになる!
毎年行ってるのですが、福岡のお友達に教えてもらってからはお気に入りの場所です。

The following is a small cafe that serves lunch plate with ingredients of Fukuoka.
The lunch plate is only 580 JPN with rice ball, miso soup, a side dish, and pickles.


モンブランも食べました(なぜ)
何でもかんでも食べたくなります@福岡。

And for some reason I ate mont blank :DD
Being in Fukuoka just makes me hungry all day along :]]]




2泊はホテルで1泊友達の家で合計3泊したのですが、
足りない~~~~福岡~~~~
毎年、名古屋大阪札幌福岡と行くのですが、どこよりも福岡が足りない!と感じます。
札幌はね、うん、寒いから…笑
