It is the Kaiyou Shokudou that you can eat cheaply and deliciously such Okinawa unique tofu dishes. The appearance and the inside of the shop are Okinawa’s cafeteria itself. I came before 2 o’clock in the day, but the inside of the restaurant was full of local people. If it is crowded you will be asked for a seat.
The menu of the Kaiyou Shokurou is like this. There are many tofu dishes, but a standard dishes of Okinawa classic are also prepared, such as Soki soba and Tebichi and more.
Speaking of Okinawa’s tofu dishes, it is Tofu Champloo. If you eat Tofu Champloo, you can taste the original taste of tofu. If you eat a bite, the rich flavor of the shima tofu in Okinawa will spread. Seasoning is also a gentle like made by my grandmama, perfect for lunch. If Outside Okinawa, you can not eat such a rich tofu. It is recommended for those who love tofu.
On another day, I came to eat Yushi tofu soba. Unlike Tofu of Tofu Champloo, Yushi Tofu is fluffy soft tofu. You are able to enjoy such soft tofu’s gentle taste. It may not be visible in the picture, but half-egg are hidden in the side.
In the Kaiyou Shokudou, delicious Okinawa tofu dishes unique to Okinawa were eaten. Thank you for the meal.
About Kaiyou Shokudou
In Kaiyou Shokudou Okinawa’s unique tofu is a delicious. The history of Okinawa’s tofu is quite old and it is said that the Chinese chefs who accompanied the book sealers taught it since the 14th century when trading with China started. Therefore, the tofu in Okinawa is also manufactured in the same type “Raw diaphragm manufacturing method” as China. Furthermore, since it is often frying and stir-frying from the heat of summer in Okinawa, it seems that it began to make Okinawa’s unique hardness. So it is different from the mainland Japanese tofu in taste and hardness. Please try and taste such tofu in Okinawa at the Kaiyou Shokudou.
