DonDon is one of the first places I ate when I visited Fukuoa prefecture the first time. It's not too far from a friend's house. A little food truck located outside of 'The Joint' supermarket, DonDon is close to Nishitetsu Gojo station in Dazaifu City, between Nishitetsu Futsukaichi and Dazaifu Stations.
After ordering, there's usually at least a few minutes wait, then customers pay and receive their hot kara-age. Some orders are sold per piece, like chicken wings, and others by weight, like Yuzu Shio kara-age. Prices are per 100 grams, although the weight will likely go over what you order, and is calculated based on actual weight. I always get Yuzu Shio, as it's a super light sweetness and flavor, but yummy like the American Chinese food, orange chicken. My other favorite is the Shoyu kara-age with ginger sauce. There are usually some seasonal items, like Ume Shiso Sasami which we tried this time. My husband likes the crispy chicken skin, but they ran out the last time we went (luckily our friends shared theirs).
There's a bench where you could sit and eat, but we usually find a nice outdoor area or go to my friend's and eat, although it's really hard to not start eating right away. For a tiny place, they do really well, and it's always busy on weekends.
Price was 1145 yen for the two of us. Too busy eating to get photos of the food!
