a friend arranged to buy 6pax lunch today 27.2.2015. not sure if he made a killing in the US market? haha! ^^
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.
