Reimen & Onmen


A moreish noodle dish, available either as cold reimen or hot onmen, heralding from Beppu. The noodles, which are made from soba buckwheat flour, have an al dente bite and are served in a clear broth topped with slices of well-seasoned beef, half a boiled egg, kimchi Korean-style sour and spicy cabbage, and sesame seed.

Found only in a few specialist restaurants in the city, at Kirin-tei near the seafront the noodles are extruded in front of you straight into the cooking pot.
