"Gettou Soba" is very famous it is made from the powdered shell of ginger flower. You can only taste the Gettou Soba here as it is registered as trademark.
This time we ordered "Bukotsu Soba" which is made from different types of grilled soba flour. You can taste the original Aoba's Umami. It's the best Soba for those of you who are not a huge fan of Soba. The smell is not too strong. If you want to enjoy the soft Soba, try the "Teuchi soba" which means "hand-made". If you want to try chewy soba, try the machine-made soba. One of the fascinating points of Japanese soba is there are two different way to cook it even it's still the same dish. There is also called "Hana Soba" which is made with noodles from Miyako island. This is the best dish especially during the hot summer in Okinawa as you can cool down with delicious Soba! Enjoy the chewy feeling of the delicious Soba going down your throat. If you visit the restaurant with family or friends, order different kinds of Soba and share them!

It's recommended to try Tempura Gettou Soba if you want to enjoy Tempura and Japanese Soba as well! You can choose hand-made noodle or machine-made noodle for your soba. Gettou Soba is very colorful and has a good smell of Gettou. For the Tempura, thereare "Mushroom","Sweet potato","Ocra"and "Shrimp". It's highly recommended to dip your tempura with Soba soup! "Sobayu" also comes with Soba which is hot water after noodles were boiled in. You can pour it into your soba soup and enjoyed it as soup or tea.

A little advise from Churashima travel
|A brief comment||
Gettou Soba with slightly shell ginger smell and chewy soft noodle is must-try! The Gettou Gelato is very popular among ladies as it's less sweet and delicious!
It's recommended to have a reservation in advance.
