Long Standing Seaside Restaurant

post : 2014.10.25 16:00

A seaside restaurant that was established in 1967. With a menu with western and Chinese cuisine and sandwiches, people on drives come here to fill their stomachs. The name of the restaurant is Seaside Drive-in.

The founder of the restaurant when he was working at  a refrigerator manufacture was able to come and go from the American military bases and he likes the style of the restaurants on the bases and taking influences from American culture he opened a restaurant in his hometown of Onna Village.

At that time, it was the first restaurant in Okinawa where you could drive thru, eat-in or do takeout.   

A lot of people going from Naha up north use it as a rest area.



From inside the spacious shop you can see the ocean and in the aquariums you can see tropical fish elegantly swimming.

An acquaintance who worked as a chef in a hotel took to the kitchen and developed the menu. There are a bunch of authentic dishes from western, Chinese and Japanese cuisine and even sandwiches.



This is spareribs simmered in Chinese miso. The star anise gives a tingling accent and the ribs simmered in tenderly in miso will make you hungry.   

This is the weekday occidental lunch. It is cutely on one plate.

In its 40th year, the 3rd chef like ones before him is still giving it a homemade flavor.

If you are on a drive, it is the perfect place where you can get delicious food and relax. So stop on by.
