Hirara is in Tomigusuku city Takayasu. It is a popular shop filled with local customers on weekdays and holidays. The interior of the shop is a homey atmosphere that feels like Okinawa’s popular dining hall.
The menu is stuck on the wall inside the store. Such a place is also a very-likely Soba shop in Okinawa.
Well, after all, when we come to Hirara, I want to eat full-fledged Miyako soba. So I ordered Miyako soba (large) without hesitation. There are few shops that we can eat authentic Miyako soba, so I’m looking forward to it.
Well, Miyako soba came. At first glance it looks like simple soba with only noodles and green onions. But, under the noodles meat and Kamaboko are hidden. This is the characteristic of Miyako soba. It’s a little funny. Straight noodles are ordered from Miyako island. And soup is bonito flavor of skipjack soup stock. It is a gentle taste that does not get tired even if you eat it everyday by blending soup of chicken and bonito. Unlike appearance, surprisingly there is volume and it will be full of stomach.
Other than Miyako soba, Tebichi soba and Soki soba are also delicious. A gentle soup matches well with Tebichi and Soki. Because it is juicy by Tebichi, it is profitable.
