Ameiro Shokudo Where You Can Have Kachuyu
post : 2014.10.26 16:00
In Higawa, Naha there is an inconspicuous restaurant called Ameiro Shokudo.
The shop is in set up in a remodeled folk house and has Showa (1926-1989) like feeling that is nostalgic.
The menu is mostly Japanese dishes like mackerel simmered in miso and niku-jaga (meat and potato stew). During the day, it is set meals and during the night it is a la carte. The carefully made homecooked dishes have a comfortable gentle taste. There is kuruma-bu (wheel shaped wheat gluten) in the niku-jaga and shira-ae (salad dressed with tofu, white miso and white sesame) garnished with bitter melon, and little by little the dishes are being arranged in a more Okinawan style.
You don’t get miso soup with the meal, you get “kachuyu”. Kachuyu is a soup that has been eaten in Okinawan homes since antiquity. It is a simple dish where bonito flakes and miso are dissolved in a bowl of hot water.
At Ameiro Shokudo, the miso comes separately, so you can adjust how dense you want it. Due to the simplicity of the dish, the quality of the ingredients stands out and the simple taste spreads throughout your body.
The shop master Keiko Tateno is a flexible person and you will have no problem relaxing in the comfortable folk house with gentle dishes.
