Miyarabi is located along Route 331 from Naha City to Tomigusuku City. A cute seasaur welcomes you at the entrance of the restaurant. When you enter the restaurant, there is a meal ticket machine right in front of you.
A menu is also posted next to the meal ticket machine. Here is Miyarabi menu list.
This is a picture of the interior of Miyarabi. There are counter seats, table seats, and tatami rooms, giving the restaurant the feel of an Okinawan soba restaurant.
This was my first visit to Miyarabi, so I wanted to try the restaurant’s signature dish first. I ordered Miyarabi Soba, which is named after the restaurant.
This is Miyarabi Soba (850 yen). It is a hearty Miyako soba with Soki, Sanmainiku, kamaboko, and plenty of vegetables. It may be hard to tell from the picture, but it is quite a large portion. In traditional Miyako soba, the ingredients are hidden under the soba, but there are so many vegetables and meat that they cannot be fully hidden.
Since I could not see the noodles, I took a sip of the soup first. The rich umami flavor of the bonito and kelp broth spread in my mouth. The soup has a refreshing taste but with a rich umami flavor. This is good! And the vegetables are crunchy and filling and do not interfere with the flavor of the soup.
After eating the vegetables, the rice noodles finally come into view. I tried the straight homemade rice noodles and found that their slippery texture matched the flavor of the soup well. In addition to the vegetables, there is also Soki and Sanmainiku, which offer different tastes. It was Miyako soba with a variety of tastes and textures.
I went for a set meal on another day. I wanted to eat both vegetables and meat that day, so I ordered the boiled meat set meal (900 yen).
This is Miyarabi’s boiled meat set meal. It consists of a large Tebichi meat, cartilage Soki, and plenty of vegetables. I tried the Tebichi meat first. The texture of the Tebichi meat was very smooth and tender. The seasoning of the boiled meat seems to be bonito soup stock, soy sauce, and mirin, which makes it easy to eat for men and women of all ages. It was a very tasty set meal with umami from the various parts of meat and vegetables.
Miyarabi is located along Route 331, which is close to Naha Airport and is a must pass for tourists using a rental car. Many of you may have seen the cute Shiisaa at the entrance. They serve delicious Miyako soba noodles and a wide variety of set menus, so why not try eating at one of these restaurants first when you arrive in Okinawa?
