Hi everyone! How are you? Do you have your favorite lunch food? I do. You might know already because I post here many time which is Okinawa Soba. It is local food and also it is known as representative Okinawa food. I really would like to introduce this Okinawa Soba restaurant for you. It is my favorite Okinawa soba restaurant. This restaurant name is Hamaya soba which is located in Chatan town Okinawa, Japan. It has been opening since 1982. It is over 35 years! I understand why local people keep going back to Hamaya Soba.
The Most Famous Okinawa Soba ” Hamaya Soba “
They say “めんそーれ ハイサイ” which means welcome and hello in Okinawa dialect. That atmosphere is perfect to be comfortable for the local people. It is not fancy but great. The most of staff are elder women, but they are friendly and such a hard workers! I always get the energy from them when I go there.
Hamaya soba is very famous and popular for local people. I think if you ask where is the famous or good Okinawa Soba restaurant to local people, they would answer you which is Hamaya soba. There is many sign of Japanese celebrities on the wall. That area is also famous for diving and surf spot, so after that, they come and eat there. It is the best food after those sports.
My favorite is to-fu Okinawa Soba. I know some people do not like to-fu, but that one is very good and fresh. Their tofu is made everyday and only few to keep fresh one It is always sold out by around noon. Besides, the price is insane only ¥550 with steam rice! I ordered with mix rice, it is add ¥100. It is extremely affordable one. If you have never tried Okinawa to-fu, you would like it 🙂
