Standard Maast Menu Ranking

★1st place Okinawa soba

"Okinawa soba" is one of the popular Okinawan cuisine that is said to be prefectural food. Although it is named buckwheat, flour is used without buckwheat flour, and the soup stock is basically pork bones and bonito. Some stores use chickens and vegetables as well. The ingredients are called three pieces of meat (pork roses), kamaboko and chopped green onions. The menu name of the soba changes depending on the type of ingredients.

★2nd place Champloo

In Okinawan language, it means "gochammaze" and "coat", meaning stir-fried using tofu and vegetables. Somen Champloo is literally a stir-fried dish with noodles. It can be eaten not only at the dining table as a home cooking, but also at the cafeteria and izakaya. One of the major and popular dishes among Okinawan dishes.
