Zen. Healthy Okinawa Food restaurant

I would like to say 'Zen' is one of the best okinawa food restaurant. I recommend to go for lunch. Good quality, volume and price.

You can choose meat or fish and price is 980 JPN Yen, including green tea ice cream. In this time, I selected chicken and my wife selected fish. Both mains makes us full. we both were satisfied at quality and volume.

Awesome dimsum in Naha

I'm looking for nice Dimsum restaurant in Okinawa. JAL hotel Alivila in Yomitan is one option but a bit expensive (Lunch time is around 2500 JPN Yen. Served with Dimsum wagon car is nice). And I've heard very nice street type 小龍包(Shou ron Pau) in Naha. Finally, I visited this small street restaurant in Sakae machi Market. Taste was awesome.
I used to live in Taiwan for 2 years. and this restaurant style is like street restaurant in Taiwan and taste as well.

I preferred 焼餃子 than 小龍包. The other customers ordered side menu. Those all looked nice. I'll order side menu as well.

Price is around 500 JPN Yen for 8 piece.
Restaurant is open from 6:30pm, but restaurant until 7:30pm is crowded. After 7:30pm, we can use tables in street because neighbor stores are close. The following map information is not perfect. I recommend you walk inside of market and find people who eat outside.
