We’ve heard of this place just opened this summer.
Finally got a chance to visit Little Greek Kitchen on Ikei Island. About 40-minute drive from Okinawa North exit of the expressway. All the way through the pretty little village of Ikei to the very end on the water.
Far out in the Pacific, the island is surrounded by beautiful reefs.
This is a beach just in front of the restaurant.
The restaurant is built in 2 shipping containers.
A very pretty cozy place. Feels like we are visiting a good friend.
It was very nice to finally meet Pamela. The owner chef.
She’s from California. Spent so many years in Japan and Greek. She speaks such fluent Japanese.
There’s no menu here. Just a course of her choice. JPY2000 per person. You just need to sit at a table and order your drinks.
Amuse-bouche with her housemade bread and hummus.
Greek Salad with her housemade cheese.
Very fresh veggies. We can just keep picking on this cheese for hours.
Here comes the plate of local goodies in Mediterranean style.
Grilled local pork and chicken, dolmadakia (seasoned rice stuffed in grape leaves), calamari, sausages and garbanzo beans, roasted potatoes, housemade pita and pie.
This housemade yogurt sauce was so beautiful.
Frape, the whipped coffee drink.
Very tasty chocolate cake with star anise.
It was late in the afternoon when the restaurant slowed down. We enjoyed such pleasant conversation with Pamela.
There’s something about this place, not only the food, that makes you feel ‘home’. Something you return to. A place where you can take off whatever you put on in daily life.
