Okinawan cuisine: The Japanese food you don't know

Don't expect to find yakitori at a typical Okinawa restaurant. Or sushi.

Japanís southernmost prefecture has its own unique food culture, the result of both its location and complex history.

The islands that make up Okinawa were once part of an independent state called the Ryukyu Kingdom, which reigned from the 15th to 19th century.

The kingdom was an important trading hub linking China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. All those gastronomic influences helped form the cuisine that's still served in Okinawa restaurants today.

1. I once ate an Okinawa-style restaurant

but it was an organized party and the dishes had been pre-ordered, so I have no idea what I was eating.

I wonder if any of the local noodle shops offer Okinawa soba?
