“Eating” is one of the fun things during the trip. There are many kinds of restaurants in Okinawa include Okinawan cuisine restaurants, restaurants where you can eat tacos and taco rice, cafes, and more. It is good to try Okinawan cuisine for your first trip to Okinawa, but if you love Okinawa and go to Okinawa many times, how about enjoying exotic atmosphere at the same time? We will list some restaurants where you can have foreign foods in Naha.

Enjoy Pho in the Morning at a Café “soi” in Tsuboya

A café “soi” near Yachimun-dori Street in Tsuboya opens from 9:00, and you can eat ethnic food put in potteries. These potteries were made by potters in Okinawa. 

You can order “Morning Pho” in the morning. Pho is a Vietnamese noodle made from rice, and lots of Okinawan vegetables are used as ingredients of Pho. When you add shikuwasa and nampla (fish sauce) into it, you can enjoy the flavor of Viet Nam.

Thai Curry is served during lunch hour. Since dairy product and flour are not used to cook curry, it is good for stomach. You can choose the level of spiciness, so children and customers with allergy can eat it with no worries.
