The majority of Okinawa Soba is made with a light fish broth that might leave people craving for more and what the saving grace is the tender soki pork or the type of noodle (thin, medium, thick). BUT Never did I realize they also serve soba using Tonkotsu based soup!!
Great take-out bento selections at 500 and 380 yen.
Lots of space and there was also a tatami seating area with about 4 tables. Great if you have little kids.
Lots of options but I went for my favorite soki soba (pictured on top of the menu). Small size is 100 grams with 2 pieces of pork and Medium is 200 grams with 3 pieces. Went with Medium!
Nice traditional Okinawan pottery.
Its like Tonkotsu ramen from mainland Japan but with amazing tender braised pork and Okinawan chewy soba noodles! Absolutely the best of both worlds!!
You can hear the chef light up his torch... braised to perfection.
The pork was absolutely buttery tender and so flavorful. Pieces were generously huge.
Sitting one table over was a little boy. Family seemed to be regulars as they knew the staff.
Should have bought a bottle!
I`ve lived in Tokyo for years but there is such a friendly atmosphere in Okinawa. The waitress here was so nice, the restaurant super spacious and the soba was just addictive... If you are staying in the Naha area you MUST give Nakazaya a try! I WILL BE BACK!! Oh its only about a 10 minute walk from the Yui Monorail Oroku Station.
