One of the things that many people look forward to and enjoy while traveling is their first meal of the day. Even those of us who usually skip breakfasts are excited about enjoying a hearty breakfast while on vacation, so that we can get on with our fun-packed day, right?


If you’re one to enjoy a hearty and satisfying breakfast, I recommend BETTER GIRL, a breakfast café that opened at the heart of Naha City in March 2019, near the Kencho Mae Monorail Station. They offer their delicious breakfasts from 8 AM, and they’ve been garnering much attention in the neighborhood immediately since their opening.

BETTER GIRL is produced by “the welcome store”, a popular establishment in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture that serves breakfast all day. The operators go to Portland once a year to absorb everything they see and feel there, and bring that inspiration back to reflect on their menu items and original products.

The most popular choice on their menu is the SHAKSHOUKA, a famous Middle Eastern breakfast that’s becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. as well.

Shakshouka (or shakshuka) at BETTER GIRL has roast pork, paprika, eggplant, green papaya, zucchini, pumpkin, potatoes and other vegetables, and also the famous superfood, quinoa. All of these ingredients are simmered in tomato sauce with spices, and topped with poached eggs and feta cheese. Shakshouka is packed with nutrients in one pot, and will certainly satisfy your taste buds and appetite, too.


Accompanying the Shakshouka is a slice of brown toast that’s a familiar breakfast staple in America. The aroma and the subtle sweetness of the grains do a great job in enhancing the main dish.

While traveling, many people end up not getting enough vegetables in their diet, but at BETTER GIRL, they offer a great selection of menu items prepared with plenty of vegetables. Your body will thank you for eating there.

Take THE CHICKEN BOWL, for example, which comes with poached egg, chicken, seasonal vegetables, and quinoa. It’s healthy and filling, so if you’re on a diet or looking for healthy choices, this is a great selection♪

To go with your meal, go for the light roast coffee by Single O Japan. BETTER GIRL is the first place in Okinawa to offer their coffee. The lightly roasted coffee is lovely and aromatic, with a light and clean taste, and you might mistake it for tea. If you usually like to add cream or sugar to your coffee, try it black first.

Koji Mayama, the owner of BETTER GIRL, says, “If we can help to add a little excitement to your everyday life, then that would make us happy.” While you’re in Okinawa, why don’t you drop by and enjoy a delicious breakfast while you plan your day of fun on the island?
