A Shop Famous People Go To! Hamaya near Sunabe Beach with Tender Soki

post : 2014.10.19 16:00

There is a famous shop in Sunabe, Chatan Town named Hamaya. It was opened on Sunabe Beach when there was nothing there 32 years ago, and it is a long running shop that has seen the change in the area.

The moment the soki (Okinawan style spare ribs), which is slowly simmered in a pressure cooker for 2 hours,  enters your mouth it feels as if it is going to melt. The special quality is that it doesn’t use pork, chicken, bonito or soy sauce as a base but it is seasoned with salt like it was in the past.

It has fried on eggs on top, instead of the normal fish paste cakes and the light soup will make you want to drink it until the last drop.

The popular dish is, of course, the “Hamaya Soba”, but the tebichi soba topped with hearty pigs’ feet, soki soba and yushi dofu soba are all recommended.
For people who don’t want to eat much there is a small sized “han soba” that you can be happy about.

On the wall, there are autographs of famous people. TV and other different types of media come and acknowledge this taste.

During the midday scuba divers and surfers fill the shop! If you come to Sunabe for water sports, while taking a walk to see the famous sunset come taste food from this famous in middle Okinawa.
