Dango-jiru & Yaseuma


Dango-jiru is one of Oita’s signature dishes. Kneaded, thick wheat noodles cooked with sliced shiitake mushrooms, onions and carrots in a miso soup make this a simple, yet delicious and filling dish.

The same noodles used in Dango-jiru are the substance in Yaseuma. Covered in sweetened kinako flour – finely grounded roasted soya beans – it is eaten as a simple snack or for dessert. Ideal with coffee or green tea, apparently it has been a local favourite since the Heian Period (794-1185).
