ALL-TIME FAVORITES!

Pig’s Feet Soup: In Uchinaaguchi (Okinawan language), it’s called ashitibichi. Pig’s feet are cooked in a soup stock and garnished with konbu (seaweed), daikon (turnip), togan (squash) and mustard cabbage. 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: Okinawan-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, rice and champuru — a mixture of stir-fried vegetables, tuna and agedofu (deep-fried tofu) — served with andamisu (pork and miso mixture) and choice of brown or white rice.

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: BBQ chicken thigh & drumstick served with choice of brown or white rice and corn; or half a chicken in a carry-out bag.

Chicken Nishime: A healthy dish of chicken, mushroom, daikon (turnip), carrots and konbu (seaweed) slowly braised and simmered in dashi, served with 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 version of the corndog. The andadog is a whole hot dog on a stick that is dipped into the 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 Yakitori booth, 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! Too hot a day for coffee? Canned iced coffee is also available. (Sold at the Andagi booth)
