めんそーれ！That’s Okinawan for ‘welcome.’ I’ve probably told you that I live near Okinawa Town several times now and you probably remember Syuri Seimen from my visit last year…or not.
I’m not sure why I don’t go here more often. The Souki Suba is actually quite good.
Souki, the mouthwatering Okinawan spare rib shown below, is tender, juicy, and well-marinated.
The handmade Okinawan noodles aren’t exactly what you’d find in a ramen, but then again Okinawan soba ain’t exactly ramen. I should probably go here more often since it’s so close. Wait, on second thought…nah.
Time for a watermelon popsicle.
After work, Shuga and I walked over to Ichiryu to pay our respects. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, they will be closing their doors tomorrow…forever.
Yeah, we’ll miss hanging out and enjoying a few laughs after work, but Kawagoe-san (middle) is off to pursue some more exciting endeavors.
Like trying to perfect his homemade curry. “Excuse me, can I please get a spoon?”
“Thanks! But only one will do.”
Good luck Kawagoe-san!! I will call upon you when you’re ready to make the big move…
