Soba-no-Sato Bibairo (蕎麦の里びばいろ) is a popular buckwheat noodles restraunt in Memuro town in the west of Obihiro city. A solitarily restraunt is built in fields, and visitors can experience Tokachi. Soba-no-Sato Bibairo was once called "Visionary Buckwheat Noodles Restraunt (幻のそば店)" by buckwheat noodles evangelist, but it closed a business, and a current owner took over the restraunt and reopened a business in 2005, so got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition.
I visited here around 13:30 on weekdays. The restraunt rebuilded a private house, and the visitors must take off their shoes to enter the restraunt at an entrance. There was a group of customers at the restraunt. All seats are tables, and family customers seem to enjoy. But the restraunt was not so large, so a lot of customers may not take a seat. I sat at a larger table and read a menu. I ordered large serving of buckwheat noodles served with dipping sauce and grated toroto yam (つけとろろそば) that is one of pupular menu. The price was JPY 850. Customers can usually choose thin buckwheat noodles "Inaka-soba (田舎そば * country style buckwheat noodles)" or thick buckwheat noodles "Seiro-soba (せいろそば * buckwheat noodles like high quality buckwheat noodles)", Inaka-soba had been already out of stock this time, so I chose Seiro-soba. In addition, dessert looked tasty, and an ice cream with soybean flour was served for JPY 70, so I could not help ordering it. By the way, water or tea are available at self-service counter.
About 10 minutes later, the large serving of buckwheat noodles served with dipping sauce and grated toroto yam was served. The buckwheat noodles were made from buckwheat flour "Kita-no-Mashu (北の摩周)" and were homemade noodles with chewy texture and good smell. The dipping sauce was mixed with grated toroto yam produced in Tokachi and had just the right amount of salt, so it was tasty! In addition, the dipping sauce with soba-yu (hot buckwheat water) and added dipping sauce was tasty, too. I wanted to eat a lot. The ice cream with soybean flour was served last. The appearance looked like Yukimidaifuku (ice cream wrapped in mochi), and the top of the ice cream had soybean flour and the bottom of the ice cream had golden syrup. It was not too sweet and had refreshing taste.
