“excellent quality of rei-men”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Rei-men is a specialty of Morioka and I like it so much. Pyon-Pyon Sya is a nice restaurant for travelers since it is near to the Morioka station, but besides the convenient location the quality of rei-men is excellent with noodles not too sticky nor too soft and soup of moderate taste. Of course we have to be care about the degree of hotness which depends on the quantities chilies and request to arrange it properly as we like.
There may be variations of Morioka Rei-men but my friend says Pyon-Pyon Sya is the standard with excellent quality. Rei-men looks something like a Korean dish and it is said actually it was developed by Korean cuisiniers. But the Rei-men of Morioka is apparently different from the Korean and I have never tasted this somewhere else. My friend says the founder of Pyon Pyon Sya has needed many years to develop the current quality and taste after coming to Morioka applying the style of Korean cuisine and that is why we consider its rei-men as orthodox.
