The residential side streets in Okinawa are so interesting because you will find little hidden local restaurants and this day I stumbled upon Kame Kame Soba (turtle turtle noodles). A peek inside and it was rather spacious and bustling on a Saturday afternoon!
Little sign outside with a few main menu items in Japanese... don`t let this stop you! English menu inside.
When you see this cloth sign outside it means they are open... when its missing its closed.
Bilingual push button vending machine... Soba noodles are nicely pictured.
This was me! Nankotsu (cartilage) Soba... super tender pork. A MUST!
Don`t see this often but its almost kind of similar to Vietnamese coriander topping but Okinawan style. FREE!
Self serve tea.
L shaped seating for lone diners.
This was a bit bitter.
Soup has a great sweet flavor to it. Noodles chewy and totally reminded me of Inaka Soba near Kokusai Street. https://tokyobelly.blogspot.com/2020/07/okinawa-naha-inaka-okinawan-soba.html
Super tender pork! Just melts and the cartilage was soft... must have been stewed for hours.
Add a bit of awamori sake seasoned with red hot chili peppers! Nice spicy kick but the flavor will change slightly so I suggest eating 1/3 or 1/2 before adding the spice.
Unsure what this red paste is used for.
Lots of table seating.
I went back the next day. Do you see what's missing? That red cloth sign...
This is the parking spot. This place seemed to be loved by locals and was just a very satisfying bowl of soba. Staff very attentive and polite. Will be back in 2021!
