Commitment to Ingredients

Cooking is about searching

All of Kuruma's ingredients are carefully selected by region.
For example, the seasonings are three-year aged soy sauce made by Marunaka Soy Sauce, a company that has believed in the same production methods, safe ingredients, and no additives since the Edo period.
We also select the best bonito flakes, kelp, mirin (sweet sake), sugar, and other ingredients. We also use pure water that has been further filtered from well water.

Carefully Selected Ingredients

    These are domestic ducks that have been raised for a full period of time.

  • type of mirin containing alcohol

    A traditional, time-consuming brew from glutinous rice.

    Zarame, Hateruma brown sugar (Okinawa), Kamishirokasugar, Wasanbon.

Home Flour Milling

It is ground that day and eaten that day. The buckwheat has the germ in the center.
So it is completely powdered, and if it were rice, it would be like eating brown rice, rich in minerals and essential amino acids.
It also has a very good nutritional balance. Brown buckwheat is preserved so that it will germinate vigorously no matter when it is sown in the field.
We consider carbohydrates the same as protein. Fresh fish can be eaten as sashimi. If it gets old, it can be boiled, tempura, or fried.
The calories are the same, but what about the effect on the body?
We put a lot of time and effort into our soba noodles, just as a mother chooses the ingredients for her baby's meal, so we want our customers to enjoy soba noodles like sashimi.
