Nihonryori Beppu Hirokado × Kitsuki Okina Daruma

Kitsuki, Oita Japanese Cuisine×Soba

Daruma Soba and Hamo (Japanese conger eel) without the bone cutter and the bone removed

Kunihiro Takahashi, the "god of soba noodle making," as seen on "Professional Work Style" and "Jounetsu Tairiku" (Continent of Passion).

Hisashi Okada, who will take over the soba restaurant "Kitsuki Daruma" in July 2022, and Taizo Hiromon, Takahashi's apprentice and owner of "Japanese Cuisine Beppu Hirokado," will collaborate for two days only!

The main ingredient this time is hamo (conger eel)!
In addition to the standard dish of hamo cut on the bone, we will also compare and contrast the "hamo without the hamo bone," which is a specialty of Hirokado.

Oita Prefecture is one of the top three in Japan in terms of the catch of hamo (conger), but hamo that have grown too large cannot be cut off the bones, so they have gone unused.

After much research, Beppu Hiromon has succeeded in removing all the bones of the hamo, one by one, to create the most delicious and fatty large hamo, which we call "Hamo without Hamo Hone", a superb dish!

As in the previous years, we will have a performance in front of everyone, and we will also prepare "collaboration soba" with Kinezuki-Odaruma's soba and other dishes that you can only enjoy on this day.

Beppu Hirokado's popular hamo (pike conger) is available in early summer!
