After a rather uneventful bowl of Morioka Reimen at Pyonpyonsha, I figured I would never be back. But then a random conversation with a local led to another bowl. You see, I was recounting my horrid tale of lackluster eats, and the sympathetic ear didn't want my rare trip to their hometown to be in vain. Seirokaku, a much tastier bowl of cold Korean noodles in their opinion, was a logical destination.
Fool me once, shame on you, Morioka. Fool me twice, shame on me. Granted that the fruit topping here, a pear, was better than Pyonpyonsha's apple, and the teeny piece of meat floating somewhere in that soup was nice. But, alas, I gotta say, when it comes to reimen . . .
I'm outta here!
