The place oozes Japanese culture, from the friendly welcome greetings to rustic wooden furniture to the Japanese posters and scrolls, which plaster the wood-paneled walls. Sample the different varieties of Awamori – the Okinawan’s secret to longevity. An interesting blend of Tumeric Tea also helps detoxify the body.

Nice Interesting Lunch on 27Feb2015

ee my full reiews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2015/02/27/nice-interesting-lunch-nirai-kanai-okinawan-diner-on-27feb2015/

a friend arranged to buy 6pax lunch today 27.2.2015. ^^ it’s an interesting place, narai kana okinawan diner at liang court. he/we ordered many interesting dishes. first was the pig’s ear ( i saw on couple of blog reviews), and the wasabi octopus. both were good. ^^ small dishes, especially the pig’s ears. the octopus was interesting, very nice teture & flavours. we had the okinawan braised belly pork (a famous okinawan dish) well reported by almost every blogger. it was good, but not much different from the kakuni i did. it was also a little on the sweet side, and by comparison, the steamed knuckles we had later was better! 
the deepfried small river shrimps was nice. bitter gourd was done well, no bitter taste. it was something quite easy to do at home though. the silk gourd with minced was nice. i liked it, for me a better dish than the bitter gourd. our dentist friend split the dish for 6 servings. very well done indeed!^^ we had the steamed pig trotters. i liked the very good gelatine & bite texture, w/o too heavy overpowering sauce. i had the onsen egg. nothing special here. i can make a 6mins runny yolk egg easily enough.^^ the somen was nice, with the usual tsuyu sauce. we were basically full but did not mind trying out couple more dishes. so our friend ordered the onigiri, a triangular shaped rice balls okinawan style? the deep-fried seaweed, and another seaweed dish. a very enjoyable lunch with great company.

When my Japanese friend brought me here, I was immediately impressed by its ambient. True to the welcoming Okinawan spirit, the laid-back, rustic vibe of the place was really reassuring. Fully reserved, I was seated by the counter, which is my preferred spot anyway. Unfortunately, unlike izakayas in Japan, there wasn’t any tencho (shop owner) to entertain you. But there was, Orion beer on tap for a reasonable price ($9 a glass, $33 a jug). Even without trying the food, that was a big winner in my heart.

I can’t believe that after obsessing with Japanese cuisine for years, this gem has gone unnoticed right under my nose. My experience with Okinawan cuisine has been smashing so far, filled with awamori (Okinawan sake) and lively music.

Walls, decorated with saved awamori bottles, and the chatter of Japanese customers were sure indication a great meal ahead. There was a large variety of Okinawan specialities like Mimigar (pig’s ear) and Simmered Pork Belly. We ordered the Hechima Set and the Simmered Pork Belly Set, as well as a side of Chicken Thigh Yakitori with Miso Sauce.
