Good goat soup (Hiijah) simmered for 3 days! Yukari Restaurant in Yaese Town

Yukari restaurant in Yaese town is a reasonably priced restaurant with a large menu of Okinawan soup dishes, set menus, and champuru. It is not very famous, but it is a diner that is firmly rooted in the local community. I heard that Yukari Shokudou serves excellent hiijah (goat soup), which is stewed for three days, so as a hiijah jougue (meaning “goat soup lover” in Okinawan dialect), I had to go there.

Yukari Shokudou is located in a place that is a little difficult to find unless you are a local, so it is best to check with Google Maps before you go there.

The outside of the restaurant looks like the picture above, very much like a countryside diner, and in a good way, as if you were at a relative’s auntie’s house. The interior of the restaurant is not very spacious, and the atmosphere of an Okinawan country diner is very much like that of a country diner.

And here is Yukari Shokudo’s menu. The fact that it is posted on the wall is very much like an Okinawan countryside diner. It would be better if it had a picture to make it easier to understand.

Yukari Shokudo's menu

And this is Yukari Shokudou Goat soup (1,450 yen). It comes with rice and is a hearty dish.

Yukari Shokudou Goat soup

There was a distinct smell of goat’s wildness in the air. I took a sip of the soup first. Delicious goat soup with a distinct goat flavor! The goat soup, simmered for three days, had a strong umami taste of goat, a dish that would satisfy even the hiijah Jougue (Gout lover).

The goat meat was so tender that it melted in my mouth. The filling, goat meat, organs, and bones were all included, and I was able to taste the deliciousness of the various parts of the goat. It comes with salt and ginger, so you can adjust the flavor to your liking.

Yukari Shokudo Okinawa soba set meal

And this is Yukari Shokudo Okinawa soba set meal (800 yen). You can choose from mackerel, white meat, pork cutlet, deep fried pork cutlet, or chicken cutlet as side dishes, and I chose the deep fried pork cutlet. It is a hearty set meal with five large pieces of fried chicken.

The Okinawa soba was simple, but the soup was clean and elegant. The soup was simple, but the broth was clean and elegant. The addition of hooch bar (mugwort) slightly changed the flavor and taste, which was just as good! The fried chicken was also juicy and filling.


And this is Yukari Shokudo’s “Chimushinji” (800 yen). Chimu means liver in the Okinawan dialect, and Shinji means roasted. Simply put, Chimushinji is Okinawan-style liver soup.

And it was delicious. It was a soup with lots of vegetables and liver, and the flavor of the liver soaked into my summer-battered body. It was quite filling and I was quite full after eating it. Thank you for the meal!
