Sobatei Takenoko

Sobatei Takenoko Restaurant in Taketomi Island Okinawa by ohmyomiyage

You don’t think I’d post about Taketomi without some foodie posts, did you? :)  My husband is a noodle fanatic so he tried to get as many bowls of okinawan soba in his stomach as possible.  Sobatei Takenoko on the northwest side of ‘downtown’ Taketomi was one of our favorites.  Friendly service, a homey atmosphere, great noodle texture and homemade soup make this place a must-eat!  Plus, it’s just a stone’s throw from West Pier, which makes it convenient too!

There is a casual indoor area with a few tables and a tatami area and an outdoor patio with picnic tables.  If you choose to eat outside, order and pay first at the cashier.  Don’t forget to add awamori hot sauce that’s the specialty in Okinawa!

Yup that’s my husband’s behind.  He can never wait for my photo ops when it comes to eating noodles!
