HATAGAYA: Ryukyu Sakaba for tasty Okinawan! Beer Food! Thanks Groupon :)

1,980yen for dinner and drinks... sounds great! But where's Hatagaya?

Located just 2 stops from Shinjuku and neighboring a long walkway is Ryukyu Sakaba.

Seems the restaurant is housed in an old home and they used the existing wooden structure... a nice tropical feel inside.

Lots of choices on the all-you-can-drink Nomihoudai Menu... and they had Orion Beer! Quickly finished off 2 mugs... then went directly for some Okinawan Awamori.

Umi-Budo always so great (sea grapes)... some Mimi-Ga (sliced seasoned pig ears).

The tiny fish on the tofy was a bit fishy and boney.

I've never had salad with Ikura (orange fish eggs) before... the dressing was similar to Bagna càuda and so tasty.

Very tender and seasoned Sooki pork thats commonly used as a topping for Okinawan Soba.

Curly fries!  Tasty tasty

Awamori!  We had too many of these... phew.

Taco Rice.... more Orion Beeru

This night we had 2 DSLRS (Nikon D7000, Pentax K-01) and 3 compact cameras (Canon S90, S95 and Lumix LX5)... food and photography can't beat that.

Some counter seating.

Overall this place was great.  Tropical atmosphere, very flavorful food that went well with beer/awamori, service was quick and the Okinawan BGM soothing.  Unsure if I'll go back due to the location but definitely worth a visit!
