Obanazawa Beef Ramen with liberal portions of Obanazawa City's specialty Obanazawa Beef"


Obanazawa Beef Ramen

"Obanazawa Beef," which is a specialty of Obanazawa City that is supplied by local producers, is stewed for roughly 5 hours until it is so tender that it can be broken up with chopsticks.This meat is cut in rather large chunks and served liberally over a rich, soy sauce-based starchy soup. We highly recommend this bowl, which is topped by "pesora-zuke” pickles that are made with summer watermelon from Obanazawa, the largest producer by volume in Japan, and have a refreshing sour taste.
