Food Scene

Better version of Okinawa Soba. I mean, MUCH MUCH better. I know you would want to try Okinawa Soba probably at least once in Okinawa. Then, you better choose a good place. This is my number one recommendation for it! Bonus point, your soba will be served in beautiful yachimun pottery bowl. They are cheap too. Around 7-800 yen for a quality meal.

Best Ramen! Okinawa is not particularly famous for its Ramen, but Ramen here are even more delicious and special than I had in famous ramen-ya in Tokyo, Osaka or Fukuoka.

Easy spot to grab a bite. Many local food vendors. Okinawan soba, Sata Andagi(donut), Shaved ice, and so on and on.. Souvenir shopping is available inside. They have fresh local farmers market as well. You can get Okinawan Mango in June and July. There is a nice bakery on the 2nd floor. Fun & Festive.

It is my favorite place for lunch. They have an amazing view, fresh food in pretty reasonable price. Easy access from our Airbnb place. I like this place for lunch, but their dinner is also good. If you go this place, check out this hotel(Kafuu)'s swimming pool on the 2nd floor after your meal. It is very beautiful.

http://niraicuisine.com I have been living here in Okinawa almost 9 years. This is absolute best Okinawan restaurant/Izakaya. They have course menus in pretty good price for what they offer. You will taste the gorgeous food in your eyes and in your mouth. Ambience is great as well. They use Okinawan ingredient and Okinawan pottery in the most sophisticated way. Highly recommended! Dinner only! Please make reservation.

(Temporarily closed as of October 2019) Suien Bakery. It is not an ordinary bakery. Before you try, I don't even want to spoil your surprise. It is insanely beautiful place and got strong and special character in so many ways. It is very close to Zakimi castle, so you might want to check both out together. From Zakimi parking, you will see a wood- sign with donkey drawing downhill to Suien bakery. Try their soup with bread and their special cream cheese. It will be a special memory for you! They open only from Thursday to Sunday. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g1120814-d6419114-Reviews-Suien-Yomitan_son_Nakagami_gun_Okinawa_Prefecture_Kyushu_Okinawa.html

I highly recommend Restaurant Makan Makan in Coco Garden Resort for delicious Cantonese meal for either Lunch or Dinner. They have all you can eat dimsum cooked as you order and they have some set menu in lunch and course menu in dinner. Their breakfast is also very good. http://cocogarden.com/english/restaurant/

A brunch hot spot in Chatan with relaxing resort vibe. Big salad bowl with avocado and roasted beef on top is extremely popular. Many great brunch menu options. Delicious smoothies are also recommended.

Sometimes, you just need good pizza. I will be honest. It is hard to find a good pizza place in Okinawa. But, ENZO does it right. If you want, authentic Italian oven baked pizza with simple quality toppings, go to ENZO. And, don't forget to visit the beach in front of the restaurant. So, this restaurant is right next to the paradise.
