An Okinawan Foodie’s Heaven

ALL-TIME FAVORITES!

Pig’s Feet Soup: It’s called ashitibichi in Uchinaaguchi (Okinawan language). Pieces of pig’s feet are cooked in a soup stock and garnished with konbu (seaweed), daikon (turnip), togan (squash) and mustard cabbage and served with hot rice.

Yaki Soba: Okinawa-style soba noodles stir-fried with vegetables and luncheon meat and seasoned with a special chef’s sauce.

Okinawa Soba: Okinawa-style soba noodles served in hot soup and garnished with kamaboko (fishcake), shoyu pork, green onions and red ginger.

Champuru Plate: If you love Okinawan food, you’ll love this plate. Delicious shoyu pork and champuru — a mixture of stir-fried vegetables, luncheon meat and agedofu (deep-fried tofu) — are served with andamisu (pork and miso mixture) and your choice of brown or white rice.

The champuru plate comes with shoyu pork and stir-fried vegetables with agedofu.

Oki Dog: A hot dog and chili are wrapped in a soft tortilla with shredded shoyu pork and lettuce.

Chili & Rice: Chili and rice in a bowl. (Sold at Oki Dog/Chili booth)

Chili Frank Plate: Chili and rice plate served with a hot dog. (Sold at Oki Dog/Chili booth)

Chicken Plate: Barbeque chicken prepared local style and served with hot rice and corn, or just chicken in a carry-out bag.

Chicken Nishime: A healthy serving of chicken, mushroom, daikon (turnip), carrots and konbu (seaweed) slowly braised and simmered in dashi (broth) and served with your choice of brown or white rice. (Sold at Chicken Booth)

Andagi: The andagi, or Okinawan doughnut, is an all-around Festival favorite. Basic doughnut ingredients such as sugar, flour, milk and eggs are mixed into a batter and deep-fried. The hand “dropping” of evenly rounded balls of batter into the hot oil is a show in itself. Three andagi per package.

Andadog: The Okinawan answer to the American corndog. The Andadog is a whole hot dog on a stick that is dipped into andagi batter and deep-fried.

Yakitori stick: Skewered chicken grilled to perfection with a touch of teriyaki sauce.

Maki Sushi: Sushi rice rolled in nori (seaweed) and sliced for easy eating. Sold at the Yakitori, Okinawa Soba and Chicken Plate booths and at the Country Store.

Shave Ice: The perfect way to refresh yourself on a hot summer day.

Coffee: Andagi and coffee, a perfect match! Sold at the Andagi Booth. Additionally, canned iced coffee will be sold in the Andagi booth.
