Kokko Shokudoh has taken a great leap in the culinary soba kitchen. Most of us are used to getting our Okinawa soba served with either those mouthwatering hunks of tender pork ribs known as "souki" or the succulently sweet cuts of "sanmai niku" (pork belly) or both. At Kokko Shokudoh, however, they have broken the ancient rule of using pork and have replaced it with chicken! For those who are diehard fans of Okinawa soba, this will be a totally new experience. The soba at Kokko Shokudoh may not really be Okinawa soba, but it's definitely tasty. The soba comes topped with a plain egg omelette and lots of very flavorful bits of chicken meat. It is definitely worth a try and also a very good option for those who cannot eat pork. Getting to Kokko is also part of the experience as it is tucked away in the peaceful village of Bise amongst tall Fukugi trees and the greenery of Motobu.
is located in Bise, Motobu nearby to Okinawa Expo Park. Follow the signs to Bise, park your car at the entrance to Bise Village, and look for the small sign on the right.
