Hidden in the quite residential area of Nishihara is a little Okinawa Soba of strong personality.
This place is really hard to find. Don’t ask people. You will never get the direction right. Ask Google.
It’s a one-man operation by the owner. There are about 10 seats only.
So-Ki, pork spare ribs, is at its best. Should have been cooked in the broth for hours before grilled.
So-Ki is Teri-seasoned, but not too sweet, not too salty. The broth is the key. Great flavor with little seasoning.
Comes with Wasabi, which is a very nice refreshment. I personally believe that every grilled meat should be accompanied by Wasabi.
So soft, juicy, and tasty that it makes you suck on the bone with a big smile.
The noodle is specially made. Curly, medium heavy noodle. Very firm, chewy, and so tasty.
The broth is a complex harmony with a lot of ingredients of several different dried fish, konbu, pork and others.
Slurp! Slurp! Slurp!
This is another Soba with ginger, green onions, and flaked pork.
I really like this one. I think this broth is really best with ginger.
After you are done with the noodle, get the plain steamed rice and you know what to do…
Ju-shi, the okinawan mixed steamed rice, is really good here. But with this noodle, the plain rice with the ginger soup is better.
If you have a good broth, you can’t go wrong…
