A long-established restaurant SEASIDE-DRIVE-IN being loved in Okinawa for over 60 years

A long-established restaurant being loved in Okinawa for over 60 years, that is SEASIDE DRIVE IN. As the name of the restaurant, it is right next to the beautiful beach of Onna village. It is a long-established restaurant that has long been popular among US military officials as well as our locals since the US military rule era before Okinawa returned to Japan. The founder who had entered and exited the US military base saw the restaurants in the base and liked it, imitated that style and opened the restaurant. Since all dishes can be taken out, there are many Okinawa peaple while stopping in the middle of the drive.

There is a signboard of a popular menu at the restaurant entrance. Popular No. 1 is Rib steak (1,750 yen), No.2 is special lunch (1,500 yen), No 3 is fly-rice (850 yen). I came at afternoon this time, so I ate a popular No.2 special lunch.

Well, this time I ordered a popular No.2 special lunch. Fried chicken, hamburger steak, white fish fries, fried shrimp, pork cutlets, boiled beef, rice and soup, and coffee after dinner that are all costs 1,500 yen! It is cheap, tasty and has plenty of volume. There are as much as they have been loved by US military officials for many years. That volume is comparable to the US military. I was quite full of stomach. Without leaving food, I enjoyed delicious coffee after dinner.

Speaking of SEASIDE-DRIVE-IN, this homemade soup. Personally recommending that you spoil pepper. Many of the OKINAWA people stop by to drink this. All menus can be taken out, so it’s convenient because you can drop in easily in the middle of the drive.
