Reimen in LA

Has anyone seen the cold, spicy noodles known as _reimen_ in any Japanese or Korean restaurants around here?
Reimen means cold noodles. I'm not sure of the exact algorithm of Japanese-Korean relations in the dish itself, but reimen is basically (in Tokyo anyway) the Japanese interpretation of what spicy summer noodles are in Korea.
The soup is a red broth, and contains noodles, maybe some hard-boiled egg, cucumbers, maybe some ice cubes.
They're a seasonal thing, and like hiyashi chûka râmen (the Japanese interpretation of what Chinese summer noodles are...) is often found at mom-and-pop râmen shops.
Thanks for any leads...
