What a beautiful restaurant! Sitting next to a zen garden as you eat delicious food.
I ordered Goya (bitter melon) and pork, Orion beer, mozuku (slippery seaweed), Yagi sashimi (raw goat) and shekwasa (if a lime and an orange made a baby) cocktail.
Yagi sashimi was interesting, it was tough to eat since its muscle and fat but there is also a layer of skin still attached, which surprisingly was the best part. A little crunchy and chewy. It was enjoyed with a dip in soy and vinegar with some raw onion. It helped that it was it thinly cut like sashimi. Would I eat it again? Yup.
The dinner ended with Goya tea along with Sanshin (three stringed traditional instrument) and Okinawan singing.
It was a delight. Truly a great night enjoyed by my lonesome. The atmosphere really did add to my dinner. I hate eating alone. I think food tastes better with company, but I also learned that in order to go where you want to go, you can’t wait for other people. Just go.
A dinner worth every penny.
More information on this restaurant when I get ahold of a computer.
For now……cheers and happy traveling!
