東京うりずん outside 1
Okinawa food is completely different from mainland Japanese food. It has become popular in the last 10 years or so, but if you haven't been to Okinawa and not eaten the real thing, you probably don't know what Okinawa food tastes like. A couple of years ago, a famous Okinawa restaurant in Naha, Okinawa opened a branch in Tokyo. If you want to try real good Okinawa food, TOKYO URIZUN at Marunouchi/Tokyo is one of the few places to go.


東京うりずん ドゥル天
Okinawa has its own food culture and it was even a country centuries ago. Urizun provides typical Okinawa dishes like, but one of the items they invented and almost everyone order is DOORUTEN (Deep fried paste of taro, pork, fishcake and shiitake mushroom). This dish has become so popular that many restaurants in Okinawa serve it as well.


東京うりずん ゴーヤチャンプル
Another typical Okinawa dish would be GOYA CHANPURU (Stir fried bitter melon, tofu, spam and egg) for 840 yen. Bitter melon and spam is commonly used for many Okinawa dishes. It is a bit bitter, but the dashi (dried kelp & bonito broth) used to season it makes it mild, which goes well with the other ingredients.


東京うりずん ラフテ
RAFUTEI (Simmered pork belly) for 1,050 yen is another famous Okinawa dish, It looks exactly like Kakuni, which we eat in the mainland, but instead of using sake to simmer it, awamori (Okinawa millet brandy) is used instead. The pork belly is sweet and extra tender.


東京うりずん ジーマミー豆腐
JIMAHMI TOFU (Peanut tofu) for 525 yen is another Okinawa dish, which is a must at any Okinawa restaurant. Unlike soybean tofu, its sweet and jelly like texture.


東京うりずん 海ぶどう
UMIBUDOH (Sea grapes or green caviar) for 840 yen only comes from the sea of Okinawa in Japan and you dip it into a soy sauce citrus sauce. There is no taste to it. You enjoy the texture or crunchiness of it.


東京うりずん ひやらーちー
HIYAHRAHCHI (Okinawa pancake) for 735 yen is another dish which is popular to people who never ate Okinawa food.


東京うりずん ふーちゃんぷる~
FUCHANPURU (Stir fried wheat-gluten bread) for 840 yen is another dish you won't find in the mainland, since we don't stir-fry Fu (wheat-gluten bread). It is main used for osuimono (clear broth) in the mainland.


東京うりずん 刺身盛り合わせ
SASHIMI MORIAWASE (Assorted sashimi) is available as well, but most of the fishes used are tropical fish from Okinawa.


東京うりずん ゴーヤチップス
If you need a potato chips like snack with your beer or beverages, GOYA CHIPS (Deep fried bitter melon) for 840 yen is a good choice.


東京うりずん とうふよう
Also, TOHFUYOH (Pickled tofu) for 480 yen is tastes like goat cheese. It goes great with awamori.


東京うりずん 沖縄そば
OKINAWA SOBA for 840 yen, where the noodles are somewhere between ramen and udon noodles since its made out of regular floor, not buckwheat like normal soba noodles. The broth is made out of dried bonito flakes and pork bones.


東京うりずん ミミガーさしみ
Now for the following dishes, it won't be for everyone to eat. Even mainland Japanese people dislike most of these dishes, but they are authentic Okinawa food. MIMIGAH SASHIMI (Boiled pork ear with vegetables) for 735 yen. You dip in sanbaizu (vinegar sauce). It is crunchy with really no taste to it.


東京うりずん スクガラス豆腐
SUGARASU TOFU (Tofu with salted small fish) for 525 yen is another item you will never see in the mainland.


東京うりずん ナマコの酢の物
NAMAKO NO SUNOMONO (Vine grated sea cucumber) for 630 yen is a common dish in the mainland as well, but vinegar sauce they use is a little different.


東京うりずん ヤギ刺
And the most uncommon dish that even many people from Okinawa dislike is YAGI NO SASHIMI (Raw goat sashimi) for 1,050 yen. Goat meat is used for many dishes in Okinawa, but if you are not use to the smell of it, don't even think of trying any goat dishes.


東京うりずん inside
If its your first time to have Okinawa food, do consider Tokyo Urizun since they do provided authentic Okinawa food. Most Okinawa restaurants in Tokyo, arrange the taste so mainland people can enjoy it, but its not the real deal. As long as you order the dishes, I recommended you will enjoy food at Urizun. Also, its very healthy since they use limited amount of salt compared to normal Japanese food.
