Okinawa food

When I arrive at Naha airport, I always go to A&W at airport.
A&W is fast food same as McDonald’s.
A&W has stores only in Okinawa.
The specialty is the drink 『Rootbeer』.
The name has beer but this is non alcohol.
Almost same as coke but it has some unique taste…
Anyway, my travel in Okinawa cannot start without A&W.
This is my custom.

please try A&W Rootbeer.

Awamori is made from indica rice from Thailand.
But nowadays, some of them is made from japanese rice.

The most popular way to drink Awamori is with water and ice.
Also, this glass is made in Okinawa called 『Ryukyu glass』.
