Kankara-kan, Naha 2

Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 15 December 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

We had a great meal in this place, lots of local Okinawan food, including goat sashimi and umibudo, an Okinawan seaweed that they tell me you can't get in mainland Japan.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

The goat sashimi give me pause but I would probably try it. Good shot.

@Steve Rice: Cheers Steve! It was okay actually, you dip the goat meat in strong vinegar instead of soy sauce - I guess the same basic concept as mint sauce on lamb...?
