Hailing from the ramen capital, Hakata (Fukuoka) in Kyushu, Japan, IPPUDO opened on 16 October 1985, and has since become the most popular ramen restaurant in Japan. Its founder, Shigemi Kawahara, was crowned Ramen King (2005) and holds a place in the Ramen Hall of Fame after winning the championship three times in a row between 1995-1998, on "TV Champion Ramen Chef", a reputable Japanese television produced by TV Tokyo.

IPPUDO's Tonkotsu ramen broth is created using an elaborate cooking process with different parts of pork bones, giving it a rich and creamy flavour tailored to customers' tastes all over the world. The noodles possess different levels of thickness in accordance with Hakata traditions, while IPPUDO's secret recipe gives them a uniquely crunchy and springy texture and innovative taste. IPPUDO's naming of Aka (Red) and Shiro (White), has become an industry standard, and has been adopted by many other ramen restaurants.

With its vision, "To continuously innovate to remain true", IPPUDO aims to offer an authentic Japanese ramen to Hong Kong customers by integrating fresh and quality ingredients, authentic Japanese cooking methods, ramen production and secret soup recipes for a fusion of taste. Landing in Hong Kong on July 18, 2011, IPPUDO (HK) redefines the authentic ramen with its highest quality ramen, hospitable service, attention to detail, and unique ambience, and continues to create an exquisite and delightful Ramen dining experience for its customers throughout the world.
