Popular restaurant for Hiroshima’s famous “Kure reimen”
The head chef of Goryu was trained at the founding restaurant of Kure reimen, Chinrai-ken. You can find many of the same toppings at Goryu as you can at Chinrai-ken like cucumber, hard-boiled egg, pickled shrimp, and thin slices of roasted pork, but what sets Goryu apart is the unique super thin and soft flat noodles. You can also find a generous amount of the elegant and flavorful chicken-bone soup broth.
Mellow and soft flavored reimen
The reimen features fluttering flat noodles that have a supple texture served with a mellow soup broth which brilliantly balances flavors of sweet, sour, and spicy. The stock from the chicken bones has great affects making for a delicious aftertaste that makes you thirst for more.
