When I travel I always like to explore local supermarkets, food stands and little mom & pop restaurants... I was lucky to stumble upon a very busy Kamihara Palour bento shop! Lots of old locals buying up little foodie items.
Price point of the items I was looking at begins at only 50 yen!
Okinawans love tempura... squid (ika) and fish seemed to be the most popular. 50 yen!!
Went for a few ika and fish tempur plus a 300 yen Sri Lanka chicken curry bento with some fried greens. Flavor was very light but it sure did hit the spot.
A photo from my second visit... items seem to be very consistent.
Shima-Rakkyo was only 250 yen a bag! In Tokyo just a few pieces is around 500 yen at Okinawan restaurants. Wish I bought a bag. As for the location walk thru the long shopping mall on Kokusai Street and walk to the very very back! Might take about 8-10 minutes.
